The Climate Pod

Jul 7, 2021

This episode kicks off The Climate Pod's "Road To COP26", our months-long series of conversations with world leaders about the importance of the United Nations' COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland, and what must be accomplished in order to successfully combat the climate crisis happening around the globe.

The United Kingdom's Shadow Secretary of State for Justice David Lammy joins our show to explain why international leaders at COP26 must include the voices of the Global South in all conversations about climate solutions and why racial justice must be addressed every step of the way toward a more sustainable planet. David Lammy has served in the UK Parliament for more than 20 years and is also the co-founder of The Sophia Point Rainforest Research Centre in Guyana.

And be sure to check out David's book, "Tribes: How Our Need to Belong Can Make Or Break the Good Society"
