Hello Earthlings! In today’s episode, we’re joined by Dr. Aaron Thierry to discuss the challenges involved in climate activism. We talked about the pivotal role science has in determining the planet’s future and why scientists need to take more active social responsibility to enforce meaningful change.
Aaron breaks down the criticality of this transformation, shedding light on the challenges he’s faced firsthand. Together, Aaron and Lisa Ann navigate the intricate landscape of climate science, unraveling the complexities from virtual engagement to taking it to the streets.
Finally, this week our faith in humanity was restored by 11-year-old activist, Kamea Ozane from Sulphur Louisiana, or unfortunately better known as “Cancer Alley”. Kamea Ozane, an 11 year old activist, along with her mother Roishetta, are raising awareness of the harmful health effects of living near fossil fuel plants. We commend Kamea, Roishetta, and all those who are fighting the good fight in reminding us of our ability to instigate change.
Join us as we explore the dynamic world of climate activism, where passion and science meets purpose.
