Point Roberts, WA and Delta, BC - November 1, 2019 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, a global news source and leading investor resource issues a special edition of its Cleantech and Climate Change podcast, talking to well-known thought leaders and management of publicly traded about today's problems and solutions for the future.
Today's podcast features an exclusive interview with renowned economist Graciela Chichilnisky, co-author of the forthcoming book REVERSING CLIMATE CHANGE (World Scientific Publishing, December 2019).
Chichilnisky also talks about her company, Global Thermostat and its "direct air capture" technology that removes CO2 from the atmosphere; how it works and its current status. This technology could potentially play a role in a carbon revolution. Chichilnisky believes economics and climate change need to go hand-in-hand.
CO2 removed from the air will not only potentially reverse climate change but can become the main feedstock of economic growth, replacing petroleum.
A fair global economic playing field and a reversal of climate change; now that is a revolution!
