Can Paris Save the Planet?

 On Monday, a group of activists, scientists, and representatives from 195 nations will gather in Paris for a landmark meeting on the environment called COP21. Though there have been a number of other global climate meetings hosted in recent decades, this time, the stakes couldn’t be higher. Scientists have given the world dire warnings, saying that if we continue along the path that we’re on now we’ll reach the point of no return. In a special hour-long broadcast with a variety of esteemed guests, The Takeaway attempts to answer this question: Can the Paris climate summit save the planet?
