The Future of Our Planet: A Panel on Climate Change at the Berkeley Forum

The Berkeley Forum

Monday, March 13, 2017

It is widely accepted amongst the scientific community that climate change has had harmful effects on the planet. Multiple treaties and agreements including the UNFCCC, the Kyoto Protocol, and the recent Paris Agreement have been made in the past few decades in order to encourage countries to limit atmospheric emissions. However, the direction of climate change policy, in the US and abroad, still remains highly uncertain.

This panel will discuss the role of the United States in international and domestic climate change policy in both the immediate and long term future.
