Beyond COP26: Next steps in the fight against climate change

November 18th, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

World leaders spent the last two weeks wrangling over climate policy at COP26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference.
Scientists, health leaders, and politicians described the conference as our last, best chance to slow global warming and stave off some of the worst health effects of climate change. But the political environment remains fraught. And it’s unclear how the speeches and pledges in Glasgow will translate into action.
