When you’re in a hole, stop digging ; when you’re facing an environmental crisis, don’t further burden the land! Is Germany following that rule? Does a “global transition to renewable energy” respect it? Can we look for anything from the 28th Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, held in Dubai under the presidency of the head of the United Arab Emirates state oil company, that respects it? Also, a report on my disappointing experience in Los Angeles.
