Join us for week five of The Recovery Series with Executive Director, Tim Gray, where we try to make sense of the COVID-19 crisis from an environmental perspective. Each week, we dig into the most pressing questions on current environmental issues.
This week is the first of two parts on the Green Recovery after COVID-19. We’ll explore current myths about renewable energy with the controversial film Planet of the Humans – a film that suggests a green recovery isn’t good for the planet and that environmentalists are steering humanity in the wrong direction. Missing many key facts, this film is riddled with outdated information. So, what are the facts? Ketan Joshi, a writer and renewable energy expert, and Sarah Buchanan, Clean Economy Program Manager, join us to discuss what Planet of the Humans gets wrong and to explore the scientifically supported facts about renewable energy and other climate change solutions.
