I found an article in the National Geographic that seems promising. It tells about the world countries agreed to initiate a shift from fossil fuels. Goals that involve a mission to stop the rise of greenhouse gases and to limit a temperature increase to 1.5 degrees. My question to this is will this agreement actually work or not? I guess, only time will tell... http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2015/12/151212-Paris-climate-change-agreement-fossil-fuels/

I have some doubts as to how effective this will be, however the thing I'm pleased with is the fact that wealthier nations have to provide aid to the nations struggling with the sea level rise. Over the summer I read an article where the politicians of the Marshall Islands were pleading for some help, as their whole country and culture is threatened by the rising sea levels.
