Climate Friday #1

Work for an Earth and space science society, I come across a lot of news concerning climate change. Knowing that we are all bombarded with the realities of climate change no matter where we turn, it may be a difficult to feel engaged what’s currently going on. I recogize this but also realize that all the information out there on climate change (not the reality of the science) is not created equal. So, as part of another weekly series, I am going to aggregate a majority of climate-related news from the preceding week here. And what a better time to start than at the end of the Paris Climate Conference.
