If there’s a silver lining to the climate crisis, it’s visible in the skies above China. The dramatic slowdown in manufacturing and driving has caused a reduction in carbon emissions and an improvement in China’s air quality. Someone who has dedicated her life to climate change policy is Christiana Figueres, architect of the 2015 Paris Agreement. In her new book “The Future We Choose,” she urges us to harness our technological, political, and economic potential to create long-term solutions. In the face of the very real threat climate change poses to our planet, Figueres tells contributor Sheelah Kolhatkar why she doesn’t lose hope. Originally aired on March 9, 2020.
