Gregg Walker will be headed to the Paris climate talks next week. But the OSU Speech Communications professor won’t be there as a negotiator; he’ll be there as an observer and a researcher as a part of the non-profit Mediators Without Borders. Walker has been to 20 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change summits, and is an expert in environmental conflict resolution.

GUEST:

  • Gregg Walker: Professor of speech communications at Oregon State University
