http://democracynow.org – Democracy Now! broadcasts from the United Nations climate talks in Marrakech, Morocco, where delegates from more than 190 countries are gathered to discuss how to implement the Paris Agreement from last year. But questions are swirling over the future of the deal following the election of Donald Trump, who has vowed to pull the United States out of the agreement and is a longtime climate denier. We are joined by Mary Robinson, who served as president of Ireland from 1990 to 1997 and U.N. high commissioner for human rights from 1997 to 2002. She is president of the Mary Robinson Foundation–Climate Justice.
