From today's Globe and Mail:

Nearly 100 countries speaking at the first UN General Assembly meeting on climate change signalled strong support for negotiations on a new international deal to tackle global warming.

There was so much interest among worried nations — many facing drought, floods and searing heat — that the two-day meeting was extended for an extra day so that more countries could describe their climate-related problems, how they are coping, and the help they need.

In the words of General Assembly President Sheikha Haya Rashed Al Khalifa, "We now have the momentum". Let's use it. Sign up to the 7 steps today. Let's not just change our own lightbulbs, let's outlaw energy wasting ones all together.
