The Paris Agreement at Three: Floundering or Flourishing?

In its infancy, the Paris Agreement carried the promise of a truly global climate solution but was criticized for lacking the teeth to pull it off. Supporters say it's the first step in setting the global economy toward a sustainable future. Critics say it's dangerously delusional to think the pact will prevent immeasurable suffering and economic harm.

Join us for a close look into the vitals of the Paris Agreement with climate experts Katharine Mach, senior research scientist at Stanford University, and Trevor Houser, partner at the Rhodium Group; both are key players in the research and policy underpinnings of the agreement. Is the pact on track to meet its goal of keeping climate change in check? Can cities, states and corporations make up for the leadership void created by the departure of the U.S. federal government?

Speakers: Katharine Mach, Stanford Univ.; Trevor Houser, Rhodium Group
