What happens at this month’s United Nations Climate Conference (COP21) in Paris will be a significant step in determining the future direction for international climate action.

He also was a negotiator at The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in 1992. He’s attending COP 21 as part of the Yale Climate Change Dialogue.
