Joan Brown's photo of the bread-maker on the main thorough-fare to the climate meetings.

When it comes to climate change, are we providing bread or stones?  While some fear the outcome of the Paris Climate Talks was too little, too weak and too late, Joan Brown considers the accord signed by 95 countries a nourishing gift to all the peoples of the earth, much like the bread the delegates bought and munched on their way to Paris Climate meetings.
