Alden Meyer previews the Paris climate talks

The November 13th Paris terror attacks have cast a shadow over the upcoming United Nations climate talks, due to begin in Paris on November 30th. The French government has banned public demonstrations in “open spaces,” only allowing protests in sanctioned areas. Alden Meyer, who will attend the talks, says the terrorist attacks may create unity at the conference. Meyer is director of strategy and policy at the Union of Concerned Scientists and a former adviser to the Danish government. He has attended 19 of the last 20 U.N. climate conferences. Meyer will tell us what he thinks are the obstacles to reaching what he calls “a good agreement.” PHOTO: Workers install a logo on the facade of the U.N Climate Conference in Le Bourget, outside Paris, Monday Nov. 23, 2015.
