Episode 8 Season 2 Finale: Climate Change

Recent years have witnessed calamitous climate events. From the bleaching of coral reefs to the melting of the polar ice caps, the effects of climate change are becoming harder to ignore. This conversation brings together two individuals from different generations who both have thoughts on how we can move the needle on climate change.

Matthew is a young climate activist with the Edmonton chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Change Lobby (CCL). Victor had a 25-year career in biomedical and forensic sciences, and, in 2006, found inspiration to fight climate change after reading “An Inconvenient Truth”. In this candid conversation, the pair discuss possible solutions to this pressing issue, including promising technologies. They also discuss challenges, including changing minds in a time when misinformation runs rampant.
