The Paris Agreement: Today And Tomorrow

In 2016, the UK became the 111th country to ratify the Paris climate agreement, which aims to avoid the most devastating effects of climate change by cutting carbon emissions. Last year, the US backed out of the global effort, although many American cities, businesses and states have pledged to adopt the goals of the agreement.

Join former Chief Scientist of the Met Office Dame Julia Slingo, environment journalist and author of The Ethical Carnivore Louise Gray, a medical doctor and an investment expert o explore whether these goals can be achieved. Take a look at what the agreement means for the UK, for our lives and now for the lives of future generations.
