Episode 73 – How to save the world with big data featuring Pilar Portela

What has been missing is a broad agreement on the true impact of mankind on climate change, and getting broad buy in on global level to do something about it.

Imagine future where any disagreement on the subject would be impossible. Imagine a future where mankind’s impact on climate change could be measured accurately around the globe?
