“We need to change the way we talk about climate change”

This statement by Dr. M. Sanjayan of UCLA opens up this new Vox video that argues that the biggest barrier to combatting climate change isn’t technology, but rather human psychology.

More about the video series below:

This is the first episode of Climate Lab, a six-part series produced by the University of California in partnership with Vox. Hosted by Emmy-nominated conservation scientist Dr. M. Sanjayan, the videos explore the surprising elements of our lives that contribute to climate change and the groundbreaking work being done to fight back.

Featuring conversations with experts, scientists, thought leaders and activists, the series takes what can seem like an overwhelming problem and breaks it down into manageable parts: from clean energy to food waste, religion to smartphones. Check back next Wednesday for the next episode or visit http://climate.universityofcalifornia… for more.
