    It's a awful tragedy, completely senseless. The perpetrators are insane.
    And it is Off Topic for TMC. It is in the proper forum. If you want to find the story on the "front page" go to any news website or print newspaper. TMC is not a general news site.

    This will effect COP21 Climate Conference and as such should be "on topic" to Tesla and TMC members.

    Ktown - most of us are relying on major news sites for updates this evening, not a car forum.

    I wouldn't get too wrapped up about where this is on TMC. It doesn't matter.

    It is on topic in the off topic forum. Not in Tesla news.

    Agree. To me it's not a coincidence that this attacks hit Paris just before the Climate Conference. And TMC is very active about the Climate issue.

    If you go to News section there is a pointer left there to here. So what's the issue?

    I agree. It's a horrible tragedy. I don't get the anger that it was moved from news. I didn't move it but it belongs here and still has a pointer so people will see it.

    This is nothing to do with a climate conference.

    This is terrorism by sick twisted people. This particular problem and France's in general is a result of poor European policies on immigration control and refugees. Things will now change over there, unfortunately too late to help the victims. Being politically correct is killing us, I'm angry and it's time we properly dealt with the problem appropriately and directly at the source.

    Disagree. It has been a real military action with many terrorists hitting Paris in many places. It caused hundreds of victims. Not only a terrorist action but also a military action very well organized. To me this is an action of war that could be related to the Climate Conference.

    This is very sad and shocking news, but it doesn't really belong in the News section of this site. So far not much is known about who is responsible, I doubt it has anything to do with the climate conference.

    This has already affected COP21...and will continue to do so:
