Delegates of around 192 countries, including around 100 world leaders, will gather in Copenhagen to hold a vital two-week conference in order to discuss how they can help reduce the effects of climate change on the planet.
On the eve of the conference, in an unprecedented move, 56 newspapers worldwide, including the Guardian, published this joint strongly-worded front-page editorial, urging the nations to agree to a deal. Many science experts and environmental campaigners have argued that the situation is now so dangerous that for talks to fail now may mean almost terminal damage.
Remember, we have approximately fourteen days to deal with this. We, the ordinary people of the planet, those who are not self-opinionated bloggers, cynical journalists, bankers, corporate managers, or other self-important big-mouth politicians, need to put as much pressure on those at the summit to set climate targets, and to change the course of history.
This IS the last chance. It must not be wasted.
