Professor Hochstetler on ‘Climate Change: America and the World’
In the first episode of Climate Change: America and the World, Professor Kathryn Hochstetler and Christopher Callahan discuss the experiences of climate change in the Global North and Global South. The discussion examines the role that international climate frameworks, including annual global COP summits, play in providing a venue for developing nations to voice their climate grievances, and whether financial compensation is needed to effectively address unequal climate damages.
