Podcast: Only 5 countries can make or break climate change

In the next two weeks, leaders from nearly 200 countries will gather in Glasgow, Scotland, to participate in the United Nations Climate Summit called COP26. They will tell us what we have heard before: If we do not drastically reduce carbon emissions, scientists have warned of rising oceans, sinking cities, famine and millions of refugees. Officials will tell us that we all need to act as soon as possible. But the destiny of mankind is indeed in the hands of a few countries.
