Marking the fifth anniversary of the adoption of the Paris Agreement, Mary Robinson — former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and president of Ireland — recently interviewed REI Sherwin Early Career Professor Kristina Douglass, assistant professor of anthropology and African studies in Penn State's College of the Liberal Arts.

The interview was part of a program featuring discussion with several climate scientists about the current state of the goals of the Paris Agreement, an international pledge to hold the global rise in temperature this century to under two degrees Celsius.

The program (which you can watch here) looked at the scientific data, as well as the human impact of the efforts of achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement.
