Global Climate Conference Looks for Solutions

In Paris, France, 200 countries will gather to create an agreement to limit climate emissions and slow climate change. The goal is to produce a document that all countries, developed and non-developed, agree on. The meeting is a step in the right direction, with 160 countries that have already set targets for emissions. In the United States, politics are involved. Congress wants to roll back the clean emissions bill, and not everyone agrees on how to address climate change. There are some who think immediate events deserve more attention than longer-term issues such as climate change. Listen to hear more about this global Climate Conference.
