Dr Jonathan Foley Environmentalist and climate scientist

Approaching climate change like a game of chess with Dr Jonathan Foley

Listen Now

In Episode #119 I sit down with Dr Jonathan Foley, one of the worlds most highly regarded Climate and Environmental Scientist’s. Jonathan has published over 130 peer reviewed papers in the the field of sustainability in highly prestigious journals such as Science and Nature. He is also an author, a highly sought after guest speaker and is the Executive Director at Project Drawdown, a not-for-profit organisation which is widely considered as the worlds leading resource for information on climate solutions. However, as brilliant as his resume is, his communication is arguably what makes his work so incredibly powerful.

In this episode we cover:

  • How the climate change conversation has moved from debate around its existence to debate around solutions
  • What Project Drawdown is
  • Individual versus government action
  • Looking at climate change as a game of chess
  • Why climate change doesn’t have to be scary
  • The changes we can make as individuals with a specific focus on three key areas: water, energy and food.
  • and much more

If you are wanting to learn real facts about climate change and the solutions we have, from someone who not only values science but contributes to it, then I highly suggest you make time to listen to this…probably more than once! And of course, share it to any friends or family members who you think may benefit from hearing from Dr Foley.
