UN Climate Conference: Everything You Need to Know (Podcast)

Oct. 13, 2021, 7:02 PM

Later this month we’ll see the kickoff of COP26, the 26th meeting of the UN’s main climate change arm. Not only is this the first of these annual meetings to take place during the Biden administration, but it’s also one in which the nations of the world are expected to lay out exactly how committed they are to achieving the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement.

On this week’s episode of our environmental podcast, Parts Per Billion, we hear from Bloomberg News’ Jess Shankleman, who’ll be attending the conference in Glasgow, Scotland. She’ll go over the stakes for this year’s conference, who’s expected to be attending, and whether this UN process is moving too slowly to have a meaningful effect on climate change.
