On the next Your Call, it’s our media roundtable. This week we’ll discuss the Trump Administration and the Paris climate agreement.

President Obama signed the treaty in 2015 calling it our "best chance to save the planet" from the dangers of global warming.  And nearly every other nation has signed on. Environmental journalist Bill McKibben of 350.org will join us to discuss the coverage and the potential consequences. What did you think of climate reporting this week?  

Guests:

Bill McKibben, Journalist and environmental activist, founder of 350.org

Fiona Harvey, Environment Correspondent with The Guardian

David Baker, Energy and Clean Tech reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle

David Marcus, Literary editor at The Nation magazine
