Episode 160: Global Warming, We Need To Act Now with Jean-Baptiste Bosson

Jean-Baptiste Bosson modestly tries to build bridges. He holds a PhD in Geosciences and especially investigated the response of small alpine glaciers to ongoing climatic changes at the University of Lausanne. In 2019, he led and published the first study on World Heritage glaciers (https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1029/2018EF001139) and showed the compelling need for humanity to save the glaciers. He is 34 years old and works now as a scientific officer for the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in Switzerland and the Conservatory of Protected Areas of Haute-Savoie in France.

What is clear is that we are really in the situation that we are asked to act very rapidly.

It’s really, really important to continue to influence the policymakers and citizens that want to have a big change.

We are consuming more resources than earth can produce for us.

Glaciers influence your life. in from all humans on Earth and they have a key role in your own life.

We are the key to the solution, we have to be factored in this movement, we have to be in action now. 

Every single little footstep is very important and together we can change everything.
