The 21st Conference of Parties (COP) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, 1992 (UNFCCC) was recently held in Paris from November 30 to December 11, 2015. The COP was attended by over 40,000 delegates which included representatives from more than 190 countries who got together to come to a decision on responding to Climate Change. The opening session saw over 150 heads of states congregate at Le Bourget, the venue of the conference. Never before had so many leaders been present at a venue, nor had they been entrusted with a responsibility this monumental: the fate of mankind.
