On this edition of America Abroad, we’ll circle the globe to see how various countries are tackling the issue of climate change since the historic Paris climate agreement last year. We check in on two of the world’s top carbon producers — China and India.
Both countries are committed to decreasing their carbon footprints, but with different approaches. China is emphasizing innovation. while India is focused on subsidizing the green energy market.
And we visit two places where global warming is most dramatic, the Arctic and the North Africa. We learn about the limits the Canadian government has faced in enacting national laws in the the face of strong opposition from industry and how the Moroccan monarchy is betting big on emerging green technology as a means to bolster its energy security.
Finally, we assess the US approach to climate change and why the military and others are calling for the Trump Administration to stay in the Paris Agreement.
