What’s Going On At COP 27, The United Nations Climate Change Conference Meets In Egypt

November 28, 2022

COP27ITS affiliate Ethan Elkind, Climate Program director at UC Berkeley Law’s Center for Energy & the Environment, talks about the first full day of the year’s most important summit on climate change, known as COP27, which opened with urgent calls by leaders to slash greenhouse gas emissions as the planet warms and severe weather events become more frequent and destructive. Scores of presidents, along with thousands of diplomats, climate negotiators, business leaders, activists and journalists descended on the Red Sea resort city of Sharm El-Sheikh to take part in discussions and negotiations slated to go through Nov. 18. He is joined by Mark Hertsgaard, executive director of the global media collaboration Covering Climate Now, and Matt Petersen, former Chief Sustainability Officer for the City of Los Angeles, to talk about what the conversations are focusing on at the conference this year and how they relate back to the State of California.
