Interview: 'Look inward, get to work and fix climate change' - Sarah Jaquette Ray

Interview: 'Look inward, get to work and fix climate change' - Sarah Jaquette Ray

Sarah Jaquette Ray (pictured) teaches at America's Humboldt State University and has written the wonderful book: "A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety: how to keep your cool on a warming planet".

Sarah was Climate Conversation's first international guest and so the interview was, for me, something of an experiement; an exepriement that worked quite well, despite a few hiccoughs, problems we overcome thanks to Sarah's generousity, kindness and patience.

However, we were not wrestling with just the technology between Sarah and I, for also standinfg between us and an even better interview, was my Aphasia, the result of a brain injury received in a road collision nearly 25 years ago.

Despite my personal limatations, Sarah sailed through the interview teling me about some of the articles published under her name: one in the Los AngelesTimes entitled "Is climate anxiety bad for the planet?"; another in a different publication that discusses "The New Faces of Climate Justice"; and then aother story in the Scientific American headed: "Climate Anxiety Is an Overwhelmingly White Phenomenon".

Climate Conversations encourages listeners to enjoy "Music for a Warming World".
