Continuing our exploration of the Transition Story project, we asked different National Hubs for their reflections on the blog that opened our theme on the Transition Story. Today Cristiano Bottone of Transition Monteveglio and the Transition Italia Hub shares his thoughts:
“At the Paris COP21 we’ve seen heads of State, one after the other, declare their understanding of the reality of climate change, saying that it is man-made, linked to fossil fuel consumption and so on. That’s quite a step forward, already reflected in public opinion and in mainstream media coverage of the topic. On the other hand, statements made concerning the consequences, urgency and radical nature of required actions are still rather vague and indeterminate. As I write this, COP21 has only just begun… so wait and see.
