There’s no denying it - we have to tackle the climate emergency. Burning fossil fuels to get energy has to end. It's doable but it's going to take solutions in every industry, at every scale, in every nation in the world.


No Denying It, the UN climate action podcast, brings you the voices of young climate changemakers from across our warming planet. These activists, engineers, and entrepreneurs show us how we can make big changes - in our homes, our jobs, where we vote and where we pray, and with our family and friends.


Because we all have to start somewhere - but the important thing is to get started. There’s no denying it.

    Erin McGoff Introduces Lefteris Arapakis

    There aren’t plenty of fish in the sea - not anymore.

    Lefteris Arapakis grew up in a family where generations before him were fishermen. But, as the climate of the Mediterranean changes, so does the fishing economy.  And while he was trying to solve that, Mr. Arapakis stumbled on a different solution. Now the self-proclaimed “worst fisherman in Greece” is hauling in a bountiful catch every day - of plastic pollution.

    We talked to him about how to use local knowledge and direct action to find solutions that work for your community - and how a bottle of whiskey can kick start the process.

    Dr. Karl introduces Yvonne Cuaresma

    Grief can be powerful when we put it into action.

    Yvonne Cuaresma knows climate grief. Her family in the West watches as wildfires burn more acreage every year, while her friends back in New York City watch flood waters rise. The pandemic, the heat, and the fires, all led Yvonne to a kind of climate crisis of her own. But then she found a way to start to heal.

    We talked to Ms. Cuaresma about The Climate Journal Project, her strategies for building communities of action, and how to move through climate paralysis through self-discovery.

    You aren’t alone. You just haven’t found your community yet.

    Cassia Moraes knows the power of community. She’s building a global network of young people, trained to take on climate jobs and to support each other in solving the climate crisis. 

    We talked to Ms. Moraes about the Young Climate Leaders program, where young people work to solve real problems, and to provide a reality check to the climate movement bubble, strengthened by the “entrepreneurship of scarcity.”

    Michelle Yeoh Introduces Tariq Al-Olaimy

    Nature has proven that we can’t beat it - so we better join it.

    Tariq Al-Olaimy calls it “partnering with nature,” to find solutions that benefit both people and planet. It’s a strategy that requires both an understanding of our planet’s complex systems, and a healthy dose of humility. 

    We talked to Mr. Al-Olaimy about the open source innovations of nature, how biomimicry allows us to leverage millenia of research and development, and how the climate crisis is also a spiritual crisis.

    What’s in the water?

    That’s what legions of volunteers are finding out with MyH20, a network that collects drinking water data to help find solutions to improve water quality across China.

    Globally, two billion people lack access to safe drinking water, a figure that will only go up as infrastructure struggles to keep pace with new climate change-related weather patterns.

    Xiaoyuan "Charlene" Ren is the founder of MyH20. We talked to her about the challenges of securing safe drinking water, and the power of citizens to collect data to make big changes.

    Kids are mad, and they’re willing to take it to court.

    Children from across the planet have been sounding the alarm about the climate crisis, fearful that their future will be unlivable. And now they’ve got a lawyer on their side.

    Mat dos Santos, Managing Attorney at Our Children’s Trust, works with young clients to bring climate litigation to federal and state courts in the United States, and tribunals across the globe. 

    We talked to Mx. dos Santos about how all other rights hinge on the right to a safe climate and policy built on the best available science.
