This is my interview with Dr. Heiko Balzter, Copernicus Award winner, Professor of Physical Geography and Director of the Centre for Landscape and Climate Research at the University of Leicester.

We talk about a lot, but some of the highlights are him shedding light on the forest fires in Siberia, which are happening in the largest contingent forest in the world, the state of deforestation around the world, along with what carbon sinks are and why we need them.
