Climate change and environmental protection has been a topic that hasn’t stopped being “top of mind” for several years. And it’s a valid concern. The human impact on the environment needs to be discussed loudly, so that awareness and knowledge are later followed by political, economic, as well as our – consumer – decisions.
We’ve invited Prof. Dr. Szymon Malinowski, an atmospheric physicist and professor of Earth Sciences, to talk about this topic, and explain in a reliable and scientific way the processes that affect each of us.
The Earth’s climate has always been changing, this is normal and a part of its nature. However, human activity has made the rate of change much more accelerated. In the last two generations, the progress of these changes is faster than in the previous thousands of years. In the interview, the professor highlights scientific observations and conclusions related to the use of fossil fuels. As a result of the use of fossil fuels, the increase in atmospheric carbon content has been the fastest over the past 60 years.
Just presenting the facts can cause distress, which is why during the conversation we also touched on aspects that every company in Poland and every person should implement as soon as possible. This includes considering environmental costs in business and consumer decisions, reducing consumption and production, reducing the carbon footprint by limiting energy and water consumption, and many other important moves.
We encourage you to listen to the entire interview, held in Polish, on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcast or other channels, and to start acting now and making personal and business decisions that support environmental protection.
