On today's Backchat, should we be optimistic or pessimistic on climate change? In Davos, Donald Trump said this week that fear and doubt is not a good thought process because this is a time for tremendous hope and joy and optimism and action. But to embrace the possibilities of tomorrow, we must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse. Is optimism, a belief that things can be made better, a more effective basis for action that pessimism? Do people not listen to 'prophets of doom? Join the debate with a climate expert and environmental activists.
