KUER News
Outgoing Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker has made addressing climate change a centerpiece of his 8-year administration. He was one of 400 local leaders who attended the Paris climate talks earlier this month.

Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker was part of the U.S. delegation to the Paris climate talks earlier this month. He’s had a little time now to reflect on the discussions -- and the historic agreement to limit the pollution that’s speeding up global warming. KUER's Judy Fahys sat down with the mayor as he prepares to leave office to find out why he participated and what's at stake for Salt Lake City in dealing with climate change.
