  1. Good interview, and such important information delivered in an understandable way for all us non-scientists.

    While it’s frustrating in this case to see Russia, China, and India shy away from joining this agreement, I can see why they might shy away considering that they represent 40 percent of the world’s population, and collectively use 23 percent of the world’s natural gas, while the US, at 6 percent of the world’s population, uses nearly 22 percent, almost as much as those three countries combined.

    Perhaps those three nations might be more likely join if the commitments to cut emissions, instead of being the same percentage range for all countries, were to better reflect the percent of the world’s population each country represents and emission reduction goals were to reflect that.
