Why COP 26 is the Make-or-Break UN Climate Conference



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Rachel Cleetus, Policy Director, Climate and Energy Program, Union of Concerned Scientists


The next United Nations climate meeting, the Conference Of the Parties or COP 26, begins next week, this time in Glasgow, Scotland. Coming during a year of continued record-breaking heat waves, hurricanes, wildfires, and warming temperatures, the stakes are crystal clear.

Representatives from 197 nations will participate in this largest of all world gatherings to tackle climate change.

Taking place six years after the historic Paris accords signed at the COP 21 in 2015, this year’s meeting is aimed at creating an updated agreement.
