The Future Of The Paris Accord, Five Years Later


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Thanu Yakupitiyage about the Paris Accord five years later.

It has been five years since world leaders gathered in Paris, France for the COP 21 UN Climate meeting and reached an agreement that, by global standards, was considered historic.

The Obama administration hailed the Paris Accord and signed the United States on, along with most of the world’s nations. A year later Donald Trump won the presidency and among his earliest acts was to pull the US out of the Paris Accord.

Where is the global agreement today and does President-elect Joe Biden’s pledge to rejoin it spell enough progress on climate change?
