    Climate Change and Literature: A New Engagement?

    While in the North of England we have been dealing with the consequences of Desmond’s stormy visit, which left us in the dark for a couple of days, armies of diplomats have been negotiating in Paris to find an agreement to keep global warming below 2°C. The COP21, the 21st edition of the yearly United Nations Climate Change Conference, is due to close today – but will overrun to tomorrow. It’s all about communication. As is literature.
