How did climate skeptic Jacob become climate champion Dr Martin? Should we give up on climate skeptics? Jacob benefitted from three things people did that changed his mind. Jacob is a materials scientist and nanotechnologist working on climate-stabilising technologies. Jacob has run the gamut in renewable/climate research, including biomass-to-power, algae biofuels, solar photovoltaics, carbon capture, pollution reduction and carbon materials for hydrogen storage, water filtration and batteries. Jacob completed his PhD at the University of Cambridge in 2019. In 2021 he took up a Forrest Fellowship in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Curtin University in Perth, Australia working on advanced carbon materials for decarbonisation.

Presented at Climate Summit for Young and Emerging Leaders on November 6th, 2021.
