The impacts of climate change are enormous, urgent and widespread, but what are solutions to tackle this global problem? One answer comes from nature’s “technology” to capture carbon — tropical forests. Host Mike Walter talks with the scientist at the forefront of this fight to preserve forests, plant biologist, Catherine Potvin a professor at McGill University in Canada. For the past three decades, Professor Potvin has studied the role of plants in mitigating global warming. Her fight to save the planet has taken her everywhere from United Nations conventions as a negotiator to the depths of the Panamanian forests as a collaborator with indigenous tribes.
