The U.N. Climate Change Conference begin in Glasgow, Scotland, on Sunday.

The two-week symposium — known as COP26 — has seen leaders from more than 100 countries participate in policy discussions with the big goal of slowing the worst impacts of climate change.

President Joe Biden attended the early phases of the conference to convince other countries that the United States is back at the table after the Trump administration dismissed international climate change discussions.

Rich Preston is covering COP26 for the BBC. He joined The Show to talk about it.
