The Climate Pod

Mar 16, 2022

Introducing a new four-part series, Climate Citizen, in collaboration with Global Citizen. Over the next four weeks, we will be discussing some of the biggest issues we face as we combat the climate crisis in 2022 and beyond. This week, we look at halting climate change and limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. To discuss this critical topic, Dr. Simon Evans, deputy editor and policy editor of Carbon Brief, and Azeez Abubakar, Global Citizen Fellow and Policy and Advocacy Chair of the Commonwealth Youth Climate Change Network, join the show. We talk about the current projections for global warming, how world leaders need to act in 2022, how activists and organizers can push policymakers, businesses, and individuals to do more, and how increased warming is driving inequality and deadly impacts across the globe.

About Global Citizen

Global Citizen is the world's largest movement of action takers and impact makers dedicated to ending extreme poverty now. With over 10 million monthly advocates, our voices have the power to drive lasting change around sustainability, equality, and humanity. Global Citizen posts, tweets, messages, votes, signs, and calls to inspire those who can make things happen to act — government leaders, businesses, philanthropists, artists, and citizens — together improving lives. By downloading the Global Citizen app, Global Citizens learn about the systemic causes of extreme poverty, take action on those issues, and earn rewards with tickets to concerts, events, and experiences all over the world. Global Citizens have taken over 28.4 million actions since 2009. Today, these actions, in combination with high-level advocacy work, have led to over $35.4 billion being distributed to our partners around the world, impacting 1.09 billion lives in the fight to end extreme poverty.
