The UN’s Official COP21 Wrap-up Video

It was interesting for me to watch this video a few weeks after COP21. It brought me back to the build-up and the drama of the final hours. Would something get passed? Would it be good enough? The sheer emotion of it all was so thick in the air that this video doesn’t really do it justice, but it does show some hints:

I had a sense during the proceedings that world leaders weren’t necessarily calling this a victory, more just a vital step in a longer journey. But this video puts a bit more of a victorious tone on the whole gathering. A more “We did it! Now we’re done!” tone that I firmly disagree with. What do you think?
