FROM THIS EPISODE

The Presidents of the US and China have agreed to fight against climate change. Now, Los Angeles is one of 10 American cities signing up with 10 cities in China — all promising the "intent" to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. We ask Mayor Eric Garcetti if "intent" is enough to make a real difference. 

Also, Salt Lake City has reduced chronic homelessness by 91% in the past 10 years. Would the same strategy that worked in Utah help clean up Skid Row?
