A Conversation with Senator Christopher Murphy on International Climate Change
Climate change is an issue that has serious impacts on global security – from South America to the Sahel. A major driver of climate change is the emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) such as methane, black carbon, and hydrofluorocarbons.
