Paul Melia: Paris diary

This column has already referenced Mohamed Adow from Christian Aid for his comments about politicians needing to stop flirting with each other and "seal the deal" in Paris. He had a powerful message yesterday too.
"This deal needs three things. It needs loss and damage, because without that we'll leave the more vulnerable behind. Finance, because without it, we will leave the poorest behind. Ambition, because without it, we leave everyone behind. In order for this deal to be revolutionary, it must be evolutionary."
The UN has launched a new comic aimed at helping children understand the effects of climate change.
And it appears to have some cred, with the Indian hero 'Chakra The Invincible' being co-created by Stan Lee, the man behind Marvel heroes Spiderman, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, etc.
One adventure sees Chakra and his best friend 'Mighty Girl' using typhoon rains from the Phillipines to put out a forest fire in Indonesia, but they soon realise that climate change is too complex to address action by action, even with superpowers.
Instead, each community must work together and play its part. A lesson for small and big people alike.
