Somini Sengupta, international climate reporter for The New York Times, convenes a conversation exploring the global ramifications of climate change and the urgent challenge facing the planet.
Taking place during the U.N. Climate Summit, which will bring together world leaders to advance climate action at the highest levels, the panel features leading voices in the search for solutions to the rising temperatures, devastating storms and increased flooding making headlines around the globe.
They include Luis Alfonso de Alba, who is the secretary general’s special envoy for the 2019 U.N. Climate Action Summit; Dr. Kate Marvel, whose groundbreaking research investigates climate change using satellite observations and computer models; Kumi Naidoo of Amnesty International, who argues that human rights and climate change are inextricably linked; and New York City student Alexandria Villaseñor, who began her own weekly school strike for climate in front of the U.N. last December and helped mobilize the first-ever global youth climate strike this spring.
