  • Listen

    The 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership has been causing conflict of late, with a broad range of disagreements over key provisions and debates intensifying due to lack of information available to the public. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will discuss climate and environment as it relates to the agreement, and will cite from a draft analysis on environmental issues recently published in the New York Law Journal by Stephen L. Kass which provides interesting insight into the prospective terms of the proposed agreement.
