In this episode, I interviewed Chris Turner, author of the book “How to Be A Climate Optimist”. In his book, Chris explores how we can approach the climate crisis with a positive outlook and offers practical solutions for creating a sustainable future.
Chris begins by acknowledging the severity of the climate crisis and the urgency of taking action. However, he also emphasizes that we should not let fear and despair paralyze us into inaction. Instead, we need to adopt a mindset of climate optimism and focus on the opportunities that come with addressing the crisis.
One of the key messages of Chris in the interview is that we need to shift from a mindset of scarcity to a mindset of abundance. Instead of focusing on what we will lose by transitioning to a low-carbon economy, we need to focus on what we will gain, such as cleaner air, healthier food, and more resilient communities. Chris argues that this shift in mindset will make it easier for people to embrace the changes needed to address the climate crisis.
Throughout the interview, Chris maintains a positive and hopeful outlook on the future, emphasizing that we have the knowledge and technology to address the climate crisis. He believes that by working together and adopting a mindset of abundance, we can create a sustainable future for ourselves and future generations.
The book offers a much-needed, refreshing and positive outlook on the climate crisis, emphasizing the opportunities that come with addressing it. In this interview, he provides practical solutions and tips for individuals to take action and contribute to creating a sustainable future.
