On the December 15th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the Paris climate summit. In a landmark deal, for the first time, 195 countries have agreed to limit the rise in global temperatures to less than 2 °C.

The Paris Pact has been hailed as a victory for the planet, but critics argue that the deal does not go far enough. What went on behind the scenes? What should be done to truly deal with the impacts of climate change? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Mark Jacobson, professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and director of Atmosphere and Energy program at Stanford University, and co-founder of The Solutions Project
