Despite being an issue on which both candidates have very different views, climate change hasn’t played much of a role in this year’s election – in fact, there wasn’t a single mention of it in any of the three presidential debates. Hillary Clinton is likely to continue many of the policies set out by Barack Obama and fully supports the recent Paris agreement. Donald Trump, meanwhile, has dismissed climate change as a “hoax”.

Steve Bloomfield is joined by Connie Hedegaard, the EU’s former commissioner for Climate Action and Michael Jacobs, one-time advisor to UK prime minister Gordon Brown and a former senior advisor to the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate.
