Tim Flannery describes in plain terms our climate predicament and brings news of exciting tools in the making that could help us avoid a climatic disaster. In December 2015 the nations of the world will gather in Paris to try to forge a climate treaty designed to give us a fighting chance to limit global warming to 2C, widely regarded as the safe upper limit if we are to avoid catastrophe. It will not be easy but as Flannery explains, if we succeed at Paris in forging a new era of international political cooperation in the fight against a warming planet, it is possible that the next decade will astonish us in the solutions that we discover to safeguard our world for our grandchildren and their grandchildren.
