Jonathan Pershing talked about the Paris climate agreement, which the European Union ratified in October 2016, .and the next generation of climate change policies. He spoke ahead of the next U.N.-convened global climate conference, which was slated for Morocco in early November 2016. Mr. Pershing, who helped develop the 2015 climate change pact in Paris as well as earlier environmental policy treaties, talked about some of the early successes of the Paris Agreement and some of the challenges facing the U.S. and other developed economies as they pursue more anti-climate change directives at a global level. Many of Mr. Pershing’s comments also focused on the growing role of renewable energy sources, particularly solar and wind, in developing economies. close
