Corporate CEO's Speak Out

In an open letter, published in Financial Times, 43 international CEO's from major corporations called upon world leaders to act on climate change. This is very good news. If we can get people other than scientists to urge action, especially powerful, influential people, then we might be able to get something done.

This letter was in the lead-up to the meeting that will be taking place in Paris this December to work on a climate change treaty. Let's hope enough pressure will be put on the world leaders they will find a way to get something meaningful done.

However, I believe we need to brace ourselves. The global warming deniers managed to spring some dirty tricks right before the last two conferences in an attempt to sabotage them. It is not unreasonable to expect them to do it again.
