President Obama is just one of the high-profile world leaders who have come to Paris for talks on how to regulate and cut carbon dioxide emissions. But he is arguably the most influential.

ITV News and the Public Media Alliance have asked people from across the globe to pose their questions to President Obama in a series of videos as he takes part in the UN Climate Conference.

And here's what the world wants to ask him about climate change.
