Scripps PhD Student On Progress Made At UN's Climate Change Conference

GUEST:

Charlotte Beall, Ph.D. student in climate science program, Scripps Institution of Oceanography

Transcript

The goal of COP22, the United Nations climate change conference held earlier this month, was to build on the Paris Agreement on global action to limit climate change.

Charlotte Beall, a Ph.D. student in the Scripps Institution of Oceanography's climate science program, attended the conference in Marrakech, Morocco.

Near the start of the 11-day conference, the United States elected Donald Trump as its next president. Trump has denied the existence of climate change.

On Monday's Midday Edition, Beall discusses what was achieved at the conference and her own research on how climate affects dust.
