Polar hub researchers are estimating how quickly human-caused climate change will cause glaciers to retreat and disappear. In Net Zero Speaks with Hu Jiaojiao, Net Zero’s climate activist Wen Tian interviews Hu Jiaojiao, a female explorer and Chinese representative of the Access Water expedition and education program. Jiaojiao, who is also the Founder of Polar Hubs, tells Wen Tian that the “melting experience has far exceeded our expectation and scientists' expectation of it.” The Himalayan region, which Jiaojiao’s research covers, is the world's third polar home to 10 major river basins and some of the world's highest mountain peaks, including Mount Everest. When asked how being a mother impacts her climate research, she notes, “We hope youth will learn about ecological restoration and how to deal with Climate Change. I want my child to enjoy a beautiful environment.”
