Join Australian scientist and conservationist Tim Flannery in his global search for genuine leadership on climate change, as he reflects on his own environmentalist journey.
Australian scientist and conservationist Tim Flannery is on a global search for genuine leadership on climate change. Interviewing everyone from CEOs to politicians and activists, he poses the question: Do we have what it takes to get out of this mess? This investigation traces Tim’s journey back from his early days as a palaeontologist piquing his interest in climate change, to his tireless – but fruitless – efforts at the 2009 Copenhagen COP, before returning to the 2021 Glasgow COP. His ongoing fight for change brings with it geopolitical troubles, adversity from a fossil fuel industry reluctant to change, as well as personal attacks from deniers and right-wing media.
