Optimistically-minded scientists and political leaders still believe there’s a chance to stop and even reverse the effects of climate change; but the more pragmatic leaders are preparing for a drastically hotter and more volatile world within the next 100 years. The impacts of climate change will be felt most destructively on the most impoverished areas of the world, which raises a philosophical question: since developed countries are overwhelmingly to blame for polluting the Earth, are they most responsible for helping the planet adapt? Patt asks that question and more to a panel of experts planning for the worst.

Guests:

Ann Veneman, executive director of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)

Amy Luers, environmental program director for GOOGLE.org
