We can already hear the ‘hitting the buffers’ and ‘going off the rails’ quips coming down the line, as another desperate effort to stir up interest in so-called climate change hits the tracks. Voice of America reports from the station.
PARIS—A train is chugging its way across France this month to raise awareness about climate change and what is at stake during December’s climate summit in Paris. The climate train got a high-level send-off Tuesday at Paris’ Gare de Lyon station that included champagne and speeches by Environment Minister Segolene Royal and other officials.
Those invited wandered through rail cars displaying maps and interactive images of how a warming climate will change our planet — and how it already has made changes. High school student Anne-Marie Coelho visited the train with her father. She attended this week’s event, she said, to learn more about sustainable development and climate change.
