The biggest diplomatic meeting since 1948 recently took place near Paris. About 150 world leaders gathered to discuss the climate change and how we can avoid catastrophic destruction. So far 2015 has been the hottest year on record. If we do not do something about this global warming soon we all could suffer from rising sea levels, more floods, worsening drought, water shortages, storms and other catastrophic events. It wont only be poor countries who will be impacted.
This is a problem of the whole world, rich or poor, we will all suffer from this. Obama was one of the world leaders to attend this meeting and he said we are the first generation to see the effects of climate change and the last that can do something about it. If we want a better life for our children we need to do something about this now. Hopefully we can come to a conclusion and fix this before it gets to extreme and to a point where we have no control.
