In Climate Conversations we talk to a diverse range of inspirational people who share a deep commitment to their communities and the natural world that sustains them. Through engaging and broad reaching conversations with leading authors, scientists, activists and politicians we discover some of the solutions to the climate and biodiversity crises that threaten our future and learn how these solutions will create a healthier, happier and more equitable world.
For the final episode of season two we are delighted to be hosting Professor Hannah Daly on the podcast. Hannah is a professor in sustainable energy and energy systems modelling at UCC, before which she worked at the International Energy Agency.
Hannah’s research and lectures focus on modelling and developing sustainable pathways for the energy system, encompassing energy access, climate change and air pollution. Over recent years she has provided a much needed voice of science and reason in the often emotionally charged and polarising debates on key issues in Ireland such as carbon budgets, agriculture, data centres, renewable energy and our path to net Zero. We talk about many of these issues with her, with a particular focus on the challenges and opportunities of cleaner energy.
The whole of life is coming to terms with yourself and the natural world. Why are you here? How do you fit in? What’s it all about?
