The Climate Majority Does climate change matter? And if it does, why is the world doing so little about it and what could change that? Father of 10-month-old Soren, Leo Barasi will talk about what climate change means for us and our children, why governments so often ignore it and what might make the world start to take it more seriously. Climate change is a growing threat but it's not too late for the world to stop it becoming dangerous if it starts doing more to deal with the problem.
Leo Barasi is an expert in public opinion, campaigns and climate change policy. He has worked with political candidates, charities, campaigns and private companies, to help them understand and shape public opinion, and is a regular writer and commentator on politics and climate change. His new book, "The Climate Majority", is about how climate apathy could stop the world dealing with global warming, and what could generate action instead.
