New roadmap to combat climate change
Delegates to a United Nations climate conference in Bali agree to a “roadmap” earlier this month. The deal sets the agenda for negotiators to work to find ways to reduce pollution. The conference nearly broke down, but the U.S. dropped last-minute demands and signed the new pact after much outrage and disappointment from other countries. Joe Rosales teaches environmental studies at St. Lawrence University. He and two students were observers at the conference. Todd Moe asked him about what took place in Bali and what might happen in the years ahead.
