The Heat: U.S. Climate Change Summit

The Heat

The United States played host to the Leaders Summit on Climate Thursday, as the nation seeks to reassert itself as a global leader on climate action. China, the world’s biggest emitter, announced an ambitious target of its own vowing to curb carbon emissions by 2060.

Joining the discussion:

  • Changhua Wu is Executive Director of the Professional Association for China’s Environment.
  • Barbara Finamore is a Senior Visiting Research Fellow at the Oxford Institute of Energy Studies.
  • Sweta Chakraborty is a risk and behavioral scientist.
