    As a lead up to the Climate Summit in Paris scheduled for December (COP21), World Ocean Radio will highlight some encouraging signs of climate progress. In this week’s episode, host Peter Neill will focus on the growing movement by corporations, institutions, and individuals to divest their financial holdings from fossil fuels. And he'll introduce the work of The Climate Group, a coalition of environmental and financial groups devoted to creating a “clean revolution” by working to develop climate finance mechanisms, business models which promote innovation, and supportive and sustainable frameworks for the future.
