The World Of Politics And The World Of Science
Andrew WeaverStreaming Video - 2014
This episode of The Green Interview features Andrew Weaver, one of Canada's leading climate scientists at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, who in 2013 made history when he became the first ever Green Party member elected to a provincial legislature in Canada. In 2007, Weaver was part of the climate-change team that won the Nobel Prize for their work for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change . Weaver-now a politician-says that if our politicians behaved more like scientists and less like opportunistic lawyers, we might have a fighting chance to curb climate change. In this Green Interview, Weaver shares his insights into how politics intersect with science and how his foray into politics has deepened his conviction that political reform is a necessary step if we want to stop climate change.
