Welcome to the special series of The GREen Pod, made and hosted by the Natural Resources Institute (NRI) at the University of Greenwich. Tune into this series of podcasts to hear about some of the fascinating sustainability work being conducted by scientists at the NRI as they study insect behaviour, pest and disease control, climate change, gender inequality, social mobility, pollution and plastics, crop disease and food systems and waste.
Episode 2 - Climate change - everyone is talking about it but how much do we actually know and understand? Can there ever be a ‘perfect solution’ or is every positive change fraught with risk? And what was the point of COP26?
Fun Fact: So, you’re probably wondering if we’re all doomed or is there hope that we can work to reverse the climbing temperature and ward off disaster? Conor says that yes, there is hope and that acting now, is key.
What is The GREen Pod?
