There is something that forces a smile when it is pretty clear the participant at the climate march had a zero footprint when attending,. No car, no train, no bus. OK, we can discuss the manufacture of the bike and parts, but we all have to have points of tolerance.

I often refer to Belgium as my favourite postage stamp sized country. And yet, for its size, it has four environment ministers debating the climate accord. A settlement was found only a few days ago, even though they had six years to conduct the negotiations. It does not bode well for the country. I mean, the climate negotiations in Paris had been underway for a week before an agreement was found.

Regardless. There is an agreement. Now to move forward as far as we can, as quickly as we can.
