Today we’re privileged to be joined by Sir David King, Co-Founder of the Clean Growth Leadership Network and founder and Chair of The Centre for Climate Repair in the University of Cambridge.
Sir David’s vast accomplishments include, being elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1991, receiving his Knighthood in 2003, working as the UK Government Chief Scientific Adviser (2000-2007), and being the Foreign Secretary’s Special Representative on Climate Change (2013-2017) – his achievements and work are as inspiring as they are important.
Sir David’s message is clear; we are dealing with a crisis of enormous proportions with regard to climate change. He believes “our civilisation has never had to face up to a challenge as big as this one, and what we do over the next five to ten years will determine the future of humanity for the next millennium”.
As the discussion progresses and we deep dive into the complexities and facts around this important subject, Sir David explains more about the Conference of the Parties meeting, explaining that the 26th session is due to take place in November of this year and world leaders will come together with one focus – to discuss climate change. As he highlights scary statistics, it’s clear just how important these meetings and subsequent actions are, and the speed at which they’re executed.
This episode will open your eyes more than ever before, to the crisis that confronts us regarding climate change, and the importance of the part we play. Speaking candidly, openly and informatively, Sir David shares incredibly thought-provoking findings and experiences with us, in a message we all need to hear.
