Robin and Christiana talk about international leadership and the implication of the US pulling out of the Paris Agreement in 2020. Is this really the disaster it’s made out to be?

They discuss how top-down and grass roots leadership can combine to make an impact on important topics, like climate change.

They talk about the role that international government plays in working towards a carbon neutral planet.

If it can’t be the sole responsibility of the government, then who else must take action and what can we do as individuals?
