The voice of the future on climate change

Here in Doha, Qatar, the second week of the UN climate negotiations is underway. The stakes are high. At these talks, world leaders decide what we will — or won’t — do about climate change. This is where the future of our species is being negotiated, with a deadline of 2015 to secure an agreement.
