The world is moving towards a low carbon future and Svein Tveitdal, former UN Environmental director, climate consultant and activist who has dedicated his life to educating the public about global warming joins us to discuss climate action. Clean energy, like wind and solar, is now the cheapest source of electricity in most countries and many of the world’s car makers are shifting to make only electric and hybrid models. Countries around the world are starting important work to protect and restore nature by committing to reduce emissions to zero. More and more countries, businesses, and investors are also coming forward with commitments to decarbonize by 2030 or 2050. But while these long-term commitments send a very important signal, it is the decisions we make today that really matter. What we say yes to, what we say no to, and where we choose to invest our financial capital now and not in years to come.
