A report published by the Sierra Club in July found that Donald Trump would be the only current world leader to deny the dangers of climate change, which the President-elect has called a “hoax,” “non-existent” and a “con job.” At last week’s Climate Change Conference – COP22 – in Marrakesh, Morocco, delegates of nearly 200 nations declared action on climate change an “urgent duty,” and Secretary of State John Kerry said that the U.S. will continue to fight global warming despite Trump’s vocal denial. We discuss the highlights of the conference, the international community’s climate goals and the role California will play as world leaders vow to shift towards a greener economy.
