Climate change is a buzzword we hear all the time in chit-chat, but unfortunately, many conversations about environmental issues are easily derailed. Passionate views and scientific terminology can make environment and climate discussions very intimidating, especially when the two sides disagree. However, it’s only by exchanging views and challenging each other, that can we ensure innovation and better policies for sustainable growth.
