Nate Silver from FiveThirtyEight on the Africa Action!

To all our american readers:
"Yesterday, there was an "action" -- a vocal protest in the convention hall itself -- organized by a loosely-knit coalition of African states, youth groups, and NGOs. The protest was centered around the idea that a carbon target which permits the earth's temperature to rise by 2 degrees Celsius -- the figure that the developed nations are expected to converge upon -- would be insufficient to meet Africa's concerns. Today, there was a similar action oriented around the tiny, low-lying island nation of Tuvalu, whose very survival may depend on more ambitious temperature targets. Further actions and protests, particularly as organized by youth groups, are planned for days ahead -- and others will follow spontaneously."
