April 22, 2016 – Cara Horowitz, executive director of the Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, was interviewed by KPCC’s “Take Two” about the historic signing of the Paris Climate Accord, which aims at cutting global greenhouse gas emissions and slowing the warming of the planet.   World leaders from a 150 countries gathered at the United Nations in New York to sign the landmark climate agreement on Earth Day. 

 “This agreement, and the signing of this agreement, isn't success by itself, but lots of people think it's what the beginning of success probably looks like,” said Horowitz. “If we're going to change global energy economies and transition to low carbon economies, this is how you start to do it.”
