    Hour 1

    climate logoFor the next twelve days, world leaders, negotiators, and scientists will meet in Copenhagen at the UN Climate Change Conference to try to iron out an international agreement to combat global warming.

This hour, we get an overview of the conference and the issues from a Time science reporter BRYAN WALSH and climate scientist MICHAEL OPPENHEIMER of Princeton University.
