How do we persuade homeowners to make climate upgrades to their homes such as electrifying, installing solar, or improving energy efficiency? Do we persuade them using environmental facts and energy data, or is a social mechanism more effective, like sparking a conversation with a neighbor or friend? Our guest today is Brian Southwell. Brian is the…
 
At a camp for internally displaced people in Baidoa, Somalia, Lisho Iman Ali shoved long, thin branches into the hard earth — the foundation of a temporary shelter she was helping to build. She arrived at the camp three months ago after fleeing her village. “Because of the drought,” she said. “And because of insecurity.” As the United Nations warns…
 
At the Banadir Hospital in Mogadishu, a couple sat on a cot in the crowded malnutrition ward. Between them, their severely malnourished baby girl lay quietly, her ribs jutting out. "The lack of food is why she became like this," said Abdel Khadar Ali, the girl's father. Parents with their child who is malnourished, at Banadir Hospital, Mogadishu. T…
 
As a kid, radio producer Sima Ghadirzadeh spent her summers in one of the hottest places on earth — the desert city of Yazd, Iran. “Yazd was always to me this mysterious place that had miraculously escaped the process of modernization,” Ghadirzadeh said.

When Somalia's new President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud was sworn into office in May, one of his first acts was to formally create a federal Ministry of Environment and Climate Change. He chose Khadija Mohamed al-Makhzoumi, Somalia's former ambassador to Iraq and Pakistan, to head the department. While Makhzoumi doesn't come from a science background, s…
 
Vultures have a pretty bad reputation as ugly scavenger birds. But by feeding on animal carcasses, they stop the spread of human diseases such as anthrax, tuberculosis and rabies. And that important role is now at risk. Some vultures, such as the white-backed species, are considered critically endangered in southern Africa; they’ve been listed on t…
 
Unusually heavy monsoon rains have caused severe flooding in Pakistan, affecting more than 33 million people. At least 1,300 people have died and millions of others have lost their homes.

You need to tell the world why your idea or mission matters – and not just in any way.

People come to me with all sorts of elaborate ideas to "change the world," like games, festivals, art projects, films, and apps. Often, these ideas have little connection to how the idea will make a real change happen on the ground once people have "experienced" the idea . . . (i.e. "I suppose we'll just put a link somewhere, then people will . . .…
 
People often ask me why we should practice individual environmental behavior change when what we really need is "systems change." It's not an easy question to answer. We need "systems change" implemented by governments as policy (like plastic bans), economic levers (like a carbon tax), and physical infrastructure (like bike paths). Yet, all systems…
