Simon is a science communicator and environmental activist. He contributes to the Climactic Collective, reporting on climate protests, citizens' juries, and scientists engaged in activism.
Simon Moore, a climate activist and science communicator, brings us another dispatch from Leeds in England. As a contributor to Climactic, he’s told stories of Extinction Rebellion protests, community activist groups and the first UK Climate Change Citizens’ Jury.    In this episode Simon discusses the boundary between activism and academia with Professor Julia Steinberger from the University of Leeds.   Julia Steinberger is an IPCC lead author and Professor of Ecological Economics. She studies the relationship between the use of resources (such as fossil fuels) and the performance of societies.   Simon and Julia talk about the role of scientists in our society, how researching and publishing the facts may not be enough in the face of climate crisis, and how being an outspoken academic has affected Julia's career in science.   Image credit: Saphie Coffey-BrittainSupport the show: for privacy information.

Since Simon's first dispatch, which you can hear here, a lot's been happening in Leeds, the UK, and the whole world. Extinction Rebellion have been active, and they're gearing up for more. Simon brings us the voices from the people, to go behind the headlines and banners, slogans and slanders. You'll come out of this knowing more about the Leeds community, XR, and the state of the transition of society in the face of the climate crisis. As well as speaking to passers-by and XR members young and old, new and brand new, Simon speaks to David Barns from XR Leeds and Our Future Leeds. We would like to thank Simon Moore and Dan Preston. Please, check out Dan's excellent Marvel review show, A Marvellous Lunchbreak for a great bit of fun. Liking the show? Leave us a rating and review on Apple Podcasts here!
