2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference

The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP 21 or CMP 11 is being held in Le Bourget, Paris, from November 30 to December 11.

It is the 21st yearly session of the Conference of the Parties to the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 11th session of the Meeting of the Parties to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. The conference objective is to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world.

2498 academics from 75 countries signed this Open Letter calling for world leaders meeting in Paris to do what is necessary to prevent catastrophic climate change.

Prominent signatories include Noam Chomsky, Naomi Oreskes, Kwame Anthony Appiah, Michael E. Mann, Ursula Oswald Spring, Bill McKibben, David Suzuki, and Peter Singer.


Open Letter from Academics to World Leaders ahead of the Paris Climate Conference 2015

Some issues are of such ethical magnitude that being on the correct side of history becomes a signifier of moral character for generations to come. Global warming is such an issue.

Indigenous peoples and the developing world are least responsible for climate change, least able to adapt to it, and most vulnerable to its impacts. As the United Nations Climate Conference in Paris approaches, the leaders of the industrialized world shoulder a grave responsibility for the consequences of our current and past carbon emissions.


Yet it looks unlikely that the international community will mandate even the greenhouse gas reductions necessary to give us a two thirds chance of limiting global warming to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. At the moment, even if countries meet their current non-binding pledges to reduce carbon emissions, we will still be on course to reach 3 degrees Celsius by the end of this century.

This is profoundly shocking, given that any sacrifice involved in making those reductions is far overshadowed by the catastrophes we are likely to face if we do not: more extinctions of species and loss of ecosystems; increasing vulnerability to storm surges; more heatwaves; more intense precipitation; more climate related deaths and disease; more climate refugees; slower poverty reduction; less food security; and more conflicts worsened by these factors.

Given such high stakes, our leaders ought to be mustering planet-wide mobilization, at all societal levels, to limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius.

We undersigned concerned academics, researchers and scientists from around the world recognize the seriousness of our environmental situation and the special responsibility we owe our communities, future generations, and our fellow species.

We will strive to meet that responsibility in our educational and communicative endeavors.

We call upon our leaders to do what is necessary to prevent catastrophic climate change. With just as much urgency, we call upon our fellow citizens to hold their leaders responsible for vigorously addressing global warming.

For the full list of signatories please see below.

To start the day …. “Back To The Start … Food With Integrity”!!

Chipotle returns to Animation to Support Sustainable Farming

Two years after Chipotle Mexican Grill introduced to widespread acclaiman animated commercial with a pointed message about sustainable farming, the company is back with another animated spot on the subject of food production.

The new commercial, called “The Scarecrow,” has already amassed more than four million views on YouTube since it was uploaded. The commercial takes swipes at giant companies that treat food like another product to process and contrasts that with food made in sustainable ways that is fresh and wholesome.

The subject of inhumane farming is not an easy one to broach. Some people just don’t want to know about it because, well, it’s not pleasant to hear about animals being forced to live in horrific conditions and being pumped up with chemicals. But fast food chain Chipotle, which only does business with farmers dedicated to humane practices, found a way into people’s hearts and minds through Back to the Start.

Created in conjunction with the CAA Marketing arm of Creative Artists Agency and director Johnny Kelly, the animated short tells the story of a farmer who has allowed his humane family farm to be transformed into one of those horrific factory-style farms but ultimately realizes the error of his ways and moves back toward more sustainable farming methods.

It’s an emotional journey, and the captivating visuals — all of the action is captured in one long pan that runs throughout the film — are supported by Willie Nelson’s haunting rendition of Coldplay’sThe Scientist.” Co.Create spoke with Jesse Coulter, co-chief creative officer of CAA Marketing, to explore the making of this affecting piece of branded content.

~Back to the Start~

~Uploaded on Aug 25, 2011~

Coldplay’s haunting classic ‘The Scientist’ is performed by country music legend Willie Nelson for the soundtrack of the short film entitled, “Back to the Start.”

The film, by film-maker Johnny Kelly, depicts the life of a farmer as he slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the errors of his ways and opting for a more sustainable future. Both the film and the soundtrack were commissioned by Chipotle to emphasize the importance of developing a sustainable food system.


Chipotle Mexican Grill established the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation in 2011 to extend its commitment to creating a more sustainable food future.

The foundation is dedicated to providing resources and promoting good stewardship for farmers; promoting better livestock husbandry; encouraging regenerative agriculture practices; and fostering food literacy, cooking education, and nutritious eating.

Since its inception, the foundation has contributed more than $3 million to like-minded organizations committed to cultivating a better world through food.
