Naomi Klein: COP21 climate change agreement dooms us to 3 degrees C of warming

According to Naomi Klein, speaking at a public event after the COP21 Climate Change agreement was announced, that it sets us on a plan to disastrous 3 degrees Centigrade of warming.  She notes that the agreement even says that the announced commitments from the Parties to the agreement are not enough to maintain just a 2 degrees or even 1.5 degrees Centigrade level of warming.

“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”

The words “fossil fuels” do not appear in the text.  Therefore the leaders lack the courage to stand up to fossil fuel companies that are responsible for the problem.
