Today on Moments of Clarity, I speak to Dr Shahir Masri.
Shahir is an air pollution scientist at the University of California, Irvine, and also teaches at the Schmid College of Science and Technology at Chapman University. He earned his doctorate from Harvard and undergraduate degree from UCLA. In 2018, Shahir launched a national grassroots advocacy project called "On the Road for Climate Action," which empowers everyday people to help solve the climate crisis through community outreach and education across all 50 states! Shahir is the author of the book Beyond Debate: Answers to 50 Misconceptions on Climate Change. He is also the author of numerous articles and many of his studies have been published peer-reviewed scientific journals.
In the podcast we discuss how early life experiences influence who we become, balancing research and outreach, the importance of individual choices, politics, the climate crisis, Covid-19 and sustainability.
