C1 Revue: Climate Science: Hope & Worry


The historic climate summit in Paris is behind us. And nations around the world are turning their attention to the lofty promises made.

With 2015 breaking the record for the hottest year ever, and 2014 holding the number two spot, plans for coping with an increasingly hot and dry world need to be part of the strategy as well. And facing this future can be scary, so we’ll also explore ideas for how to handle the anxiety and stress that many of us are feeling about all this.
