How We're Going to Solve Climate Change - Ed Gillespie
TEDxKingsCross 2021 was a countdown themed event looking at solutions to climate change. Ed Gillespie told us why that was the wrong approach. Ed Gillespie is a writer, communications specialist, serial entrepreneur and futurist. He is the author of ‘Only Planet – a flight-free adventure around the world’ a book about his circumnavigation of the globe without getting on a plane, which the Independent said “Allow[s] the world’s flaws and beauty to seep into your soul”. Ed co-presents two leading podcasts, 'The Great Humbling' with Dougald Hine, and 'Jon Richardson and the Futurenauts - How to survive the apocalypse' with comedian Jon Richardson and fellow reluctant futurist Mark Stevenson.
