Your Call: Climate change policies in the US

Oct 3, 2016

On the October 3rd edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about US climate policy. The US recently ratified the Paris climate agreement, aiming to keep temperatures "well below" 2 degrees Celsius, but those obligations will not be met unless new measures to cut greenhouse gases are passed.

What is President Obama’s environmental record? And what are Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s climate policies? Tweet your questions and comments to @yourcallradio and join us live at 10am with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Noah Diffenbaugh, professor in the School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences, and Senior Fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment

Michael Mann, professor of Atmospheric Science at Pennsylvania State University, and co-author of "The Madhouse Effect"
