Climbing For The Greater Good - How Mountain Climbers Can Foster Sustainability with John All
Updated: Jul 5
Called a 'badass for science' John All is a scientist who uses his skills to reach places most people fear to tread, in order to bring back data that is helping us understand how climate change is altering the world’s highest peaks.
John witnesses first hand the changes happening to our mountains due to waste and climate change and will share some ideas about climbing for the greater good - how mountain climbers can foster sustainability in communities around the world and about some of the studies they are doing up mountains to track climate change.
Meet John All:
John is a mountaineer, a scientist and co-author of Icefall: Adventures at the Wild Edges of Our Dangerous, Changing Planet, and Director of the American Climber Science Program famously pulled himself out of a 70-Foot crevasse in the Himalayas with 15 broken bones and as a career risks his life to study how climate change affects mountains.
