An Assessment of the Work So Far at the COP26 Climate Conference
We begin and go to Glasgow for an assessment of the COP26 Climate talks and speak with Robert Stavins, a professor and the director of the environmental economics program at the Harvard Kennedy School and a lead author of three reports by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. We discuss the work drafting an agreement that has gone on this week since the world leaders spoke on November the first and second and the work that will continue this coming week until the almost 200 government ministers sign on to an agreement. We also discuss the apparent gap between the actions of the negotiators inside and the aspirations of the demonstrators outside the huge U.N. conference venue in Glasgow.
