VIDEO: Kelly Takaya King talks about her work in Hawaii

As the world’s eyes turn to Egypt for the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27), Austin-based Texas Impact/Texas Interfaith Power & Light is sending to the Chronicle daily dispatches from the conference.

While national officials tussle over global climate policy, local leaders are taking a hands-on approach to solutions. Maui County Council Member Kelly King talks about her work in Hawaii, and her empathy for small island nations seeing their homelands slipping into the sea.
