AS OF THIS EMAIL: As many as three gunmen believed to be wearing military-style gear opened fire Wednesday at a Southern California social services center “as if they were on a mission,” killing at least 14 people and wounding more than a dozen others, authorities said. Hours later, police hunting for the attackers riddled a black SUV with gunfire several miles away, and one person lay motionless in the street — dead or dying — with a gun nearby. Officers appeared to remove a second person from the vehicle. New details and developments by morning.

And there will be a final agreement, the question is how much teeth will be left in it. And then the question becomes will the participating nations follow it’s protocols. Even here in the United States, there is already talk that Congress may refuse to fund some of the overseas clean energy investment the Obama administration will promise developing nations. So there still are a lot of questions, even as scientists for the most part insist that time is running out, and this summit may be a last change to get something going to affect catastrophic climate change ramifications.
