What is the true price of saving the world's forests? World leaders are meeting in Lima looking to thrash out a deal to set global targets on climate change. But is enough being done right now to protect those on the front line? We hear from the daughter of one Peruvian activist who was murdered whilst campaigning to stop illegal logging in the Amazon. His family have now abandoned their homes, fearing for their lives. Is this one of the untold tragedies in the fight against global warming? And are we all paying a very real price for it as a result?
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
