In December 2015, governments of the world met in Paris and adopted an arguably game-changing international agreement on climate change. However, in June 2017, President Donald Trump decided to leave the Paris Climate Agreement.

Rob Melnick will lead a spirited Case Critical discussion with Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, Sonja Klinsky a long-time observer of the UN negotiations, and economist William Boyes about how this headline-grabbing decision might impact cities, the nation, and the world -- from our economies, to our communities and our environment.
