What an honor to finally get climate hero Dr. Gerald Kutney (find him on Twitter!) on the program to do a very powerful deep-dive into what is unfolding in our world and what steps we may take as solutions to these epic challenges. Gerald is crystal clear an absolute joy to connect with here. We also gave a couple of huge shout-outs to scientific heroes Dr. Michael Mann, Paul Hawken, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, and Nathanial Stinnett. Another inspiring show with one of the many people making a huge difference.

Dr. Kutney has a Ph.D. in chemistry and over two decades of executive experience in the corporate sector and entrepreneurial enterprises in the bioeconomy and renewable energy sector. Currently, he has his own consulting firm, Sixth Element, which specializes in helping entrepreneurs make their bioeconomy projects a success, and volunteers as a mentor for MBA students at the University of Ottawa.

For the past decade, he has studied climate change policy development and is a pundit on the politics of climate change. Gerald was an adjunct professor at the University of Northern British Columbia, where he taught the graduate course Climate Change & Global Warming. Now living in Ottawa, he has presented several guest lectures at Carleton University on climate change.

Gerald has published a peer-reviewed book, entitled Carbon Politics and the Failure of the Kyoto Protocol, which charts the framework and political evolution of the Kyoto negotiations in search for an answer to the failure of the international community to act on climate change. The focus is not on the science or consequences of climate change but on the political gamesmanship which has been pervasive throughout the Kyoto negotiations by the major players.
