Polish Environment Minister Sacked As Warsaw Climate Talks Continue
The climate meetings have not been great. China and India both refused to see lower carbon emission levels. This change in Poland forbears possible further investment and dependence on fossil fuels. Certainly the US needs to step up and show more leadership, including setting a carbon price on economic activity that comes with a heavy environmental price.
