On this podcast hear from Dr. William Sunderlin, a researcher and adjunct faculty member at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Dr. Sunderlin strives to practice sustainability in both his private life and professional life. During the interview, we discussed living sustainably and reduction of green house gases to address climate change. Personally, he has been working on home-improvement projects aimed at reducing his dependency on fossil fuel. Professionally, he is involved with REDD+ (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation), and worked on global programs aimed at mitigating the impacts of climate change. Dr. Sunderlin believes that the technological capabilities exist for reducing our dependency on fossil fuels, and he has a lot of hope that young people will work to live more sustainably in the future and help our planet Earth.
