Mark Jaccard on his book "The Citizen's Guide to Climate Success: Overcoming Myths that Hinder Progress"
In this talk Professor Mark Jaccard shares the findings of his new book and speaks on how climate-concerned citizens can overcome myths that hinder us from acting in time to prevent extreme climate impacts. Their actions can involve personal consumption choices (electric vehicles, heat pumps) but these only have an effect if citizens are also engaged in the political process and civil society to elect and support climate-sincere politicians. These personal and collective efforts must align with and foster a global strategy of de-carbonization, especially in developing countries. Come to the talk to find out what you can do.
