Arek Sinanian's Optimism about the future of climate change
November 2020: The host of the Optimist Heart at The Centre for Optimism Caroline Ward asked Arek Sinanian about his optimism. Arek is the author of A Climate For Denial, a book about the cognitive barriers to accepting the science of climate change. He has been a practitioner, an engineer and an advisor on climate change for 40 years.
"I'm very optimistic about the future of climate change and the global efforts to mitigate it, mainly because I think there is a swell of awareness, a swell of public support for our corporations and governments to act more decisively and more urgently to address this problem. And particularly the young people, they're on board and as they become the leaders of tomorrow I think we're going to see huge changes, and I'm very optimistic. So let's do it. We can and we will."
