Media Roundtable: The UN Climate Change Conference in Madrid & The Impeachment of Donald Trump
On this week’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of the UN climate conference in Madrid. The US and several other big polluters blocked a nonbinding measure that would have set tougher targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions. During the conference, thousands of young activists protested the lack of action by big polluters calling the gathering a PR campaign.
Later in the program, we'll talk about the impeachment vote in the House of Representatives. The House impeached Donald Trump on two charges: obstruction of Congress and abuse of power. What's next?
