Michael Robinson, chief executive officer of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RSGS), introduces the Climate Solution Accelerator program. Earth911, Jump Digital, and the RSGS have partnered to make the program available in North America. The 90-minute video-and-quiz program explains the essential ideas in climate science, sustainable business, and the policies and paths out of the crisis. More than 90,000 people globally have used the Climate Solution Accelerator to learn about climate strategies and train employees to start making informed environmental decisions. The program features globally renowned climate leaders, including former Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney, late Secretary General of the United Nations Kofi Annan, and former President of Ireland Mary Robinson.
Michael, who is based near Glasgow, Scotland, shares what business has struggled to learn and his impressions of the debates at the recent United Nations Climate Framework COP27 meeting in Egypt.

The Climate Solutions Accelerator delivers an informative introduction to the most complicated and urgent challenge our species has ever faced. While there is plenty of evidence of the climate crisis in the news and in our neighborhoods, and billions of people are waking to the threat, most organizations and businesses are still trying to get their heads around the problem. The program explains how they can respond by changing their operations and investments to end CO2 emissions. It also describes how to prepare to adapt to increasing business disruptions we face until society succeeds in reaching carbon neutrality and begins to draw down the more than 1 trillion tons of anthropogenic CO2 emitted during the Industrial Era.
