Local man attends Paris climate talks

Idaho doesn’t have an official representative at the Paris climate talks, but Sandpoint’s Gary Payton is there, representing the Presbyterian Church and the Idaho Conservation League. Payton who spent 24 years as an officer in the U.S. Air Force specializing in eastern Europe and Russia, has spent the second half of his life dedicated to peace, service and protecting the environment in Idaho and the globe. He paid his own way to join the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, along with 151 heads of state; national negotiators; and leaders of global faith communities, environmental organizations and businesses. The Paris talks continue until Dec. 11/Rocky Barker, Idaho Statesman. More here.
