a crash course in cop21

The goodly people at The Daily Good gave their readers a crash course in COP21, the Conference of Parties, held in Paris in 2015. Indeed, it’s all about climate change and saving the planet, causes very close to my heart.

So I was happy to see that they used a picture I took of “Cool Paris”,  an installation on the banks of the River Seine by Transsolar and Carlo Ratti Associati. Inspired by cutting edge nanotech research from Stanford University, the team is exhibiting how new photonic membranes that reflect solar radiation could help reduce extreme temperatures in our cities, at zero energy cost and zero water demand.
