it’s crunch time to get a deal on what U.S. President Barack Obama calls an “ambitious” global climate change agreement.
Leaders of 150 nations are in the second day of the COP21 conference Tuesday. COP stands for Conference of Parties, an annual United Nations forum to try to tackle climate change on a global political level.
Many officials will convene in working groups before coming together and potentially hashing out an agreement.
In a wide-ranging press conference on Tuesday before heading back to Washington, Obama said he thinks the conference will succeed.
