Much public talk about climate change is framed around an ever-diminishing time window within which climate change must be stopped. In this conversation, PhD supervisor Professor Mike Hulme and supervisee Madeleine Ary Hahne explore other ways of framing the challenges and opportunities of climate change.

Should we be using climate change to animate new grass-roots, bottom-up actions, rather than only seeking ‘breakthrough solutions’ to emerge from the next cycle of international negotiations? They will approach this question through a discussion of their mutual research interests, Mike’s recently published book – Climate Change Isn’t Everything: Liberating Climate Politics from Alarmism – and Madeleine’s new climate action platform, Rootd Earth
