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.

Pushing for a powerful climate deal, President Barack Obama called the global talks opening Monday outside Paris an “act of defiance” against terrorism that proves the world stands undeterred by Islamic State-linked attacks in Europe and beyond. Obama used his speech to more than 150 world leaders to salute Paris and its people for “insisting this crucial conference go on” just two weeks after attacks that killed 130 in the French capital. He said leaders had converged to show resolve to fight terrorism and uphold their values at the same time. Obama’s remarks came at the start of two weeks of make-or-break negotiations to finalize a sweeping global agreement to cut carbon emissions and hopefully stave off the worst effects of climate change.
