Paris talks 'not going to impact' climate change, climate scientist says


A Cato Institute climate scientist told a House committee Wednesday the climate change talks in Paris at the end of the month won't change our climate's current path.

Paul Knappenberger, the assistant director for the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank, told the House Science, Space and Technology Committee that the plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions put forth by countries attending the talks are going to be close to the status quo.
