On this episode of The Edit, we spoke with staff writer Kate Wheeling about the United Nations' upcoming climate conference in Katowice, Poland. The conference, called COP24, could determine how the member nations pursue the goals set forth in the Paris Climate Agreement.
During the conversation, Wheeling outlines the history of the U.N. climate conference, the importance of addressing climate change on an international and subnational level, and the pitfalls of negotiating a global climate change agreement.
Wheeling will be representing Pacific Standard at the conference in Poland over the next two weeks, and you can find her complete coverage of COP24 here. You can also find Wheeling's reporting on last year's COP23 here.
