During an interactive session with students, Dr. Running informed students that the climate change and its impact has to be looked from a social science perspective as well. With an increasingly well established fact of climate change evidences through scientific disciplines, it has now become more of global social issues. Amongst other, students also raised questions on recent Amazon fires and its linkages to climate changes.
