It’s perhaps a sign of man's ability to adapt to new environments that having only been in the COP15 world for less than 24 hours I’m now striding about as if I’ve been hear for days.

A couple days ago, we blogged about NBC Nightly News’ ongoing series on climate change’s impact on the developing world. Last night’s segment focused on the drought in Kenya. You can watch the clip below, and read Martin Fletcher’s in-depth report from northern Kenya here.

Remember to keep checking the ONE Blog where we’ll be posting frequent updates from the climate summit in Copenhagen.
