Is COP26 a Copout? [S4, E20]
Play • 26 min

After 18 months of COVID and a turbulent geopolitical map, this crucial global convening of leaders will set the stage for the environmental future of planet Earth. COP is coordinated by the UN and produced the Paris Accord five years ago. Now, many of the world’s top leaders are back to discuss what happens next.

COP 26 comes at a time of huge energy confusion. Energy prices are off the charts, and there simply is not enough clean energy to meet the world’s needs. What can we expect from this meeting?

Altamar hosts Peter Schechter and Muni Jensen are joined by Michael Jenkins, President and CEO of Forest Trends and former Associate Director for the Global Security and Sustainability Program of the MacArthur Foundation. Altamar’s ‘Téa’s Take’ by Téa Ivanovic discusses the impact and role of youth in a time where climate policy is crucial.
