COP28: The UN climate change conference

On this edition of Your Call, we discuss this year's UN Climate Change Conference in Dubai, which runs from November 30 - December 12.

More than 650 scientists signed a letter to President Biden calling on him to commit to more ambitious US climate actions in the lead-up to the talks. Nearing the end of a year in which the world witnessed devastating climate-fueled disasters, record-breaking global average temperatures, and soaring heat-trapping emissions, the scientists emphasized their concern about the acceleration of climate change and the significant shortfalls in efforts thus far—especially by wealthy, large emitting nations like the United States—to address it.
