Published on Oct 15, 2015This December over 190 nations will gather in Paris to discuss a new global agreement on climate change. The talks are called 'COP21' which stands for the 21st annual Conference of the Parties but what does all that mean and why is any of it important? This film will not only give you the facts but help you understand why it matters to all of us - in less than two minutes! There will be regular updates on Green.TV about COP21 leading up to and during the talks in Paris.

This is the music performed as spoken about in the blog below.
This is a very interesting and real account of a concerned scientist wanting to help people to "feel" the reality of what climate change means for us all.
What he says is essential and simple to listen to and only takes a minute
Exhilarating...among the year's best films... Radical Grace moved me to tears with its portrayal of good people putting their beliefs into action in ways that transcend all idealogical boundaries.
RADICAL GRACE follows three fearless nuns who risk their place in the Catholic Church to follow another higher calling: social justice.
When the Vatican investigates and reprimands the sisters – citing their “radical feminism”– they become the spiritual and symbolic center of a struggle for the future of the Catholic Church. The women refuse to back down. They challenge the patriarchal system and ultimately win the hearts of the new pope and Catholics worldwide.
From their cross-country Nuns on the Bus tour, to serving those on the margins, to a continued struggle for Catholic women’s religious equality, these sisters are transforming American politics — and the Church itself.
Inspired by the sisters’ story, RADICAL GRACE is launching a social impact campaign that will help reframe faith and morality as a force for the progressive movement. Collaborating with feminist and faith-based social justice organizations, we will leverage the film to support reform within religious institutions and bridge divides to build a stronger progressive and feminist movement.
On July 20th, James Hansen, the former NASA climatologist who brought climate change to the public's attention in the summer of 1988, issued a bombshell:

Last week, we brought you the “Song of Our Warming Planet,” a cello solo to the tune of rising temperatures over the last century. Now let’s give its sequel, “Planetary Bands, Warming World_,” a listen. Cellist Daniel Crawford has asked other University of Minnesota students to join his global-warming orchestra. This time, each instrument represents temperature fluctuations at specific northern latitudes (fans of the Southern Hemisphere, don't fret—one's in the works). Tuned to the average temp at each region, the low cello tracks the equator, the viola sings the song of the mid-latitudes, and a pair of violins hits the high notes of the Arctic.
Last week, NASA announced that the first six months of this year were the warmest first half of any year on record, and 2015 is doing its damnedest to challenge 2014 for the title of “hottest year in recorded history.” That’s some seriously heavy news, but seeing chart after chart of steadily rising trend lines isn’t always the most poignant (or original) way to convey the problem to the masses. So two years ago, Daniel Crawford, an undergrad at the University of Minnesota, decided to try putting global warming in more emotionally resonant terms.
Working with his geography professor Scott St. George, Crawford used “data sonification” to convert NASA surface-temperature data into cello music. Each year between 1880 and 2012 corresponds to one note, its pitch determined by the average temperature (higher = hotter). The result, “A Song of Our Warming Planet,” is a whole new way to face the music of our fossil-fuel habit.
