Coral Davenport, energy and environment correspondent at The New York Times, talks about the new UN report on climate change, which issued dire warnings about the consequences of a warming planet, and the unprecedented scale of what would have to be done to change the course.

Behind the UN report: World leaders commissioned a panel of scientists to find out what things would look like before the 3.6 degree Fahrenheit tipping point. The big takeaway is that 2.7 degrees looks a lot more like 3.6 than we thought, and we'll see it by 2040.
