When the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change concluded in Katowice, Poland, on Dec 14, the world was awaiting signs of hope that the climate change challenge could be met. The encouraging 200-country deal notwithstanding, some reports show that not enough is being done to limit the global temperature increase to 2 degree centigrade, which experts consider necessary to prevent the worst effects of dangerous climate change.
