The United Nations Climate Change Conference, also called COP21, kicked off in Paris November 30, and they don’t end until December 11.

Over the next couple weeks we’ll see history unfold, since the Paris talks could be where the world finally agrees to a legally binding, specific plan to limit carbon emissions.

Global leaders from 195 countries are going to try to figure out how to keep global warming under 2 degrees Celsius, and raise $100 billion per year by 2020 to do so.

Luckily, the internet has lots of ways to stay up to date with the monumental decisions that are being made at the conference, even if you can’t be there in person.
