A ray of hope

Today – the 11th anniversary of Nicola’s untimely death – I needed an extra ray of hope in the gloom of grief. It arrived from an unexpected source.

There’s another anniversary in December that’s also important to me. December 12th 2015 saw the adoption of the Paris Climate Agreement.

I noticed that Nicola is included in the dedication to Kaveh Guilanpour’s fine photoessay on climate diplomats at the Paris negotiations.

It’s so heartening to see the faces and words of negotiators from around the world – from local activists to Heads of State – as they explain to Kaveh their motivation to fight climate change.

So many people working so hard to salvage the future. That’s a ray of hope for sure.
