How many people does it take to rescue a global climate deal? Lots. In fact, we can only do it with massive public pressure from people like you. And the time is now.

The latest round of UN discussions trying to solve the massive issue of climate change ended today. Sadly, this year’s negotiations, in Warsaw, Poland, were something of a farce. As Oxfam’s Executive Director Winnie Byanyima said:

Ayer encabecé el grupo formado por cientos de personas de todo el mundo que abandonó la 19ª conferencia sobre cambio climático de Naciones Unidas en señal de protesta.
