Youthwashing is the latest corporate eco marketing strategy. But young climate activists aren't falling for it, says environmental educator Isaias Hernandez, aka @QueerBrownVegan on the latest episode of the Climate Curious podcast by TEDxLondon. In a bid to try and clean up their image, multinational businesses (usually with a vested interest in fossil fuels), feature WAY too many young faces in their ads… and we’re over it. In this chat with co-hosts Maryam Pasha and Ben Hurst, learn what institutionalised racism feels like in the climate movement (from someone on the inside), why we need to push for multigenerational wisdom as opposed to piling the pressure on young people to save the world, and how foraging for mushrooms is the perfect eco self-care activity to try today. Tune in to learn why climate has a #youthwashing problem.

    Why methane reduction is the ultimate climate hack

    34:52

    "Cutting methane is the single fastest, most effective opportunity to reduce climate change risks in the near term," says atmospheric scientist Ilissa Ocko on the latest Climate Curious by TEDxLondon. That’s because methane doesn’t hang around like other greenhouse gases – but it does pack a powerful punch – so reducing it means we could slow down the rate of warming by as much as 30 percent, before 2050 – yay! Tune in with co-hosts Maryam Pasha and Ben Hurst live from TED Countdown to discover the three biggest causes of methane emissions, why methane behaves differently to carbon dioxide and why it matters, and most excitingly, get introduced to the methane satellite Ilissa’s team is launching this year – MethaneSAT.

    Why oceans are heroes, not victims

    24:26

    “We've just been talking about the ocean as a victim, but I believe that it’s part of the solution,” says ocean adviser for the UN, Susan Ruffo, on the latest episode of Climate Curious by TEDxLondon. They provide half of the oxygen we breathe, absorb almost a third of the world’s carbon and cover 71% of the planet. But, Susan argues, oceans get surprisingly little air time in the climate conversation. And given how many solutions its unexplored depths might provide to climate problems - that needs to change. Tune in with co-hosts Maryam Pasha and Ben Hurst live from TED Countdown to learn about why we must think of the ocean differently, what changing the chemistry of the ocean means for the creatures living in it, how oyster reefs are being used to reduce the threat of flooding and more.

    Why the climate crisis is a health crisis

    30:00

    “It’s impossible to have healthy people on a sick planet,” says climate and health campaigner Shweta Narayan, on the latest episode of Climate Curious by TEDxLondon. Shweta introduces a new perspective: by viewing climate change through the lens of the Hippocratic Oath — an ancient set of ethical standards sworn by physicians (and no, it has nothing to do with hippos!)— every person has a role to play in the climate fight. Tune in with co-hosts Maryam Pasha and Ben Hurst live from TED Countdown to learn about why how we must focus on “first doing no harm” before anything else, how we cannot put a cost on our ability to simply breathe clean air, and how her four dogs are her secret weapon to avoiding eco-burnout. Learn more: https://tedxlondon.com/podcast/climate-curious-why-the-climate-crisis-is-a-health-crisis/ Watch Shweta's TED Talk: https://www.ted.com/talks/shweta_narayan_it_s_impossible_to_have_healthy_people_on_a_sick_planet
