In the lead-up to the United Nations Climate Change Summit to be held in Paris in December, Atmosphere of Hope provides both a snapshot of the trouble we are in and an up-to-the-minute analysis of some of the new possibilities for mitigating climate change that are emerging now. It is interesting to note the language of the word hope being used as quite often the words are so pessimistic when encountering the topic of climate change.

With exciting proposals like carbon free concrete.
