Transcript
“2015 United Nations
Climate Change
Conference”
Representatives from 196 nations made a historic pact
Saturday, agreeing to adopt green energy sources, cut down
on climate change emissions and limit the rise of global
temperatures — while also cooperating to cope with the
impact of unavoidable climate change. The deal still needs to
be adopted by individual governments — but the acceptance
by the diplomats gathered in Paris has been hailed as
"transformative.” The agreement acknowledges that the
threat of climate change is "urgent and potentially
irreversible," and can only be addressed through "the widest
possible cooperation by all countries" and "deep reductions in
global emissions.” While the goals are ambitious and exciting
questions such as how deep will those reductions be — and
how soon, and who's paying for it still remain. Phase One
reads "Holding the increase in global average temperature to
well below 2 degrees C above pre-industrial levels ...”
Limiting the rise in temperature to 2 degrees (3.6 degrees
Fahrenheit) has been discussed as a global goal for several
years now but is now laid out and adopted as the expectation.
That amount of warming will still have a substantial impact,
scientists say, but will be less devastating than allowing
temperatures to rise unchecked.

 A masked man yelled support for ISIS as he stabbed a French
kindergarten teacher in the throat Monday morning, authorities
said. The teacher, who is hospitalized with nonlife-threatening
injuries, was in class in the Paris suburb of Aubervilliers when the
man attacked, French newspaper Le Parisien reported. It said the
unarmed attacker had on a balaclava, and used a sharp item found
in class to slash the teacher. The students were not in class at the
time, the paper said. "This is a warning, this is only the beginning,"
the attacker said, according to a statement from Bobigny district
prosecutor's office.
 Nine candidates will appear in prime-time Tuesday night for the
final Republican presidential primary debate of 2015, a critical
