Here are the last of the videos that I filmed in Paris. The COP21 that I attended there just over a month ago seems to be a vague and distant memory; not just for me but for a planet steamrolling itself over the edge of a cliff.
Every day we see signs of a climate system in chaos. Temperature in Brazil too warm and wet spreading Ziki carrying mosquitos to bite pregnant mothers causing severely shrunken baby heads. What a nightmare, over 4000 cases there, and now 4 in Canada (my guess is over 40 in the US, but nothing reported yet).
On a lighter note, I am literally following about a dozen sharks. They transmit their positions, and their movements are plotted out over time and tweeted out. They have even started following me:) Crazy world…
