Hundreds of thousands of people from Australia to Paraguay Sunday joined the biggest day of climate change activism in history, telling world leaders gathering for a summit in Paris there is "No Planet B" in the fight against global warming. In the French capital, where demonstrations were banned by the authorities after attacks by ISIS, activists laid out more than 20,000 shoes in the Place de la Republique to symbolize absent marchers on the eve of the summit. Hopes are high that the Paris summit will not fail like the previous such meeting six years ago in Copenhagen. Still, all sides say pledges made in Paris will be insufficient to limit a rise in global temperatures to 2 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels, widely viewed as a threshold for dangerous changes in the planet's climate system.
