After 20 years covering climate change around the world, reporting on the newest strategies to lower emissions and following the scientists and policymakers working to make a better world, Calgary-based writer Chris Turner says he's finally turned the corner. He's gone from being a climate pessimist, to a climate optimist. In his new book, How to Be a Climate Optimist: Blueprints for a Better World, Turner delves into the global climate solutions that are making a difference, revealing why they give him hope for the future. He speaks with Piya Chattopadhyay about the book and what more needs to be done to reach "net-zero" — and explains why he believes optimism is essential if we're going to tackle one of the most critical issues of our time.
