A New Climate VisionTED Explores

Event Details

The impacts of climate change are growing, but so are the world’s attempts to stop them.

 

Hosted by Manoush Zomorodi of the TED Radio Hour, this special TED documentary examines the many revolutions underway — electric vehicle revolution, renewable energy, agriculture – and the real possibility of a better future for all.

Featuring urban planner Anika Goss, scientist and carbon expert Julio Friedmann, UN Climate Chief Simon Stiell, auto industry sustainability leader Cynthia Williams, and multi-generational farmers Jim and Jessica Whitaker, as well as interviews with architect of the Paris Accords Christiana Figueres, former UN Climate High Champion Nigel Topping and many more.  Figueres begins the presentation by saying “There’s no doubt that we are facing exponential impacts of climate change. There is also, however, no doubt that that is being met with exponential progress of the technologies that can help to address climate change. So what we have here is, frankly, a race between two exponential curves. By 2030, we collectively will have chosen between door number one. And door number two.”
