On Dec. 12, the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris ended with the first climate change agreement. We discussed the agreement with two Princeton University researchers who attended the Paris climate talks: Michael Oppenheimer, the Albert G. Milbank Professor of Geosciences and International Affairs and director of STEP; and Denise Mauzerall, professor of CEE and public and international affairs.
Regarding the partial report on climate change due out on Friday, Roger Pielke, an environmental scientist at the University of Colorado in Boulder and Michael Oppenheimer, a Professor of Geosciences and International Affairs in the Woodrow Wilson School and the Department of Geosciences, both suggest that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) might better spend its time doing more targeted reports, that take on specific defined issues, and release them more often.
