|Talking, and talking, about climate change.|
|'Are we really facing Climate Change?' |
A question I thot was answered long ago.
Colombia, of course, is already feeling the impacts of climate change, with the melting of its glaciers and shifting weather patterns. And sea level rise could devastate Colombia's Caribbean islands and coastal cities.
Sure, Colombians per capita generate much less global warming emissions than do residents of the United States and many other developed countries - and even much less than neighbor Venezuela.
At last year's climate summit in Durban, South Africa, Pres. Santos said "We are one of the nations which do not emit carbon" (a dubious claim) "but we are one of the most vulnerable to climate change."

And, with increasing car ownership and consumerism in general, Colombia is going in the wrong direction.
