we need assistance on foreign countries. the more coal they're burning, in a developing country or a powerhouse like china, that's going to affect us. we need much more investment in our electric grid infrastructure. that's failing in northern california because of underinvestment by pg&e. we will need a lot of investment to make this work. that will take some sacrifice. the cost of that investment pales in comparison to doing nothing. for the next two weeks, world leaders are meeting in scotland to hammer out a plan to deal with our climate crisis. we're tracking the summit closely. join us as we break down headlines from the global climate conference and what it means for us here.
