LAST YEAR, THE LEADERS OF THE WORLD came to the first-ever international agreement on climate change in Paris. It was a huge step for the world — even if it’s a huge step that we should’ve made 20 years ago and should be expanding upon by now — and it’s the first real sign that the world is committed to fighting global man-made climate change.
