The Climate Summit is kicking off today in Paris. This is an incredibly important moment for all of us, across the globe, and I for one will be tracking what happens carefully.

The good folks at Grist will be writing about it as the Summit goes on, too — I highly recommend their coverage. To get started, check out this introductory article.

Climate change is going to have dramatic impacts on cities (and indeed we’re already seeing some of those changes). From increased heat waves to rising sea levels, this is something that should concern all city-dwellers.

For a bit of inspiration, check this out for photos of yesterday’s day of action for climate change, in cities all over the world (the rallies in Paris were pretty much non-existent due to increased security measures following the terrorist attacks, but plenty of others were out in full force).

Good luck to everyone attending and working at the conference! We’re all counting on you.
