Activity One - Create - Global Agreements

It took quite some time for countries to come together to agree that the changes in the global climate was an issue. In fact, there are still countries that do not believe climate change is happening or that they need to do anything about it. Before we begin to investigate the global agreements on climate change we need to explore what the United Nations is.
