Politics. Love them or hate them, climate policies on local, national, and international levels are required if we are to successfully integrate renewable energy and all of the other climate technologies talked about in this show, and prevent the worst effects of climate change. In this bonus episode we are going through the most essential pieces of climate policy in Canada, the US, the EU, and internationally.
Although I personally find the technology side of climate action much more interesting, it is important to note that putting climate action into law ensures that it is being paid proper attention to by everyone and I mean EVERYONE, because it is much more difficult to dodge a law than a recommendation. I hope you find yourself learning from this episode, and if you listen all the way through there is a fun little surprise at the end you don’t want to miss!

Innovating a Bright Future is the podcast that brings together technology and climate action in an engaging interview format that showcases some of the most interesting initiatives taking place across the globe. If you are someone who cares about climate change but you’re tired of hearing about how the world is going to explode in a few short years if we don’t do something soon (What does that even mean?), then this podcast is for you. We stay away from divisive politics and meaningless numbers with no context, and instead I interview climate action leaders implementing revolutionary ideas that are helping to reduce our impact on the world around us.

Who am I?
My name is Avry Krywolt, I am a student from Alberta Canada, I am passionate about taking action against climate change, and I am the host of Innovating a Bright Future. I’ve noticed through my own experience that the number of people concerned about climate change is growing quickly. At the same time, the information being presented to the public is, in most cases, a sad sigh of defeat, irrational denialism, or frantic screaming that does no one any good. The fact is that climate change is happening, but it is not hopeless, and you are not powerless. TED speaker and climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe said that “The most important thing you can for climate change is talk about it.” so let’s talk about it. Let’s learn about solar energy and battery storage, let’s dig into green hydrogen, and wind, and the power of water, and the importance of sustainable energy. Let’s learn and let’s discuss. We aren’t doomed, but we have to work hard in order to keep climate change from wreaking real havoc on our world. So let’s get to work.
