After finishing my MSc in Environmental Science and becoming a full-time science YouTuber (with over 10 million views), I'm now focused entirely on the issue of climate change. On my channel I've sealed myself in a DIY bio-dome to demonstrate how we interact with the atmosphere, spent seven days living in a tree blocking the path of an oil pipeline talk about what we must do in order to stop the biggest threat our species has ever faced.
