Former EPA administrator Gina McCarthy talks with Scientific American’s Andrea Thompson about the widespread benefits of taking action against climate change.

That’s Gina McCarthy. She was the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency during most of Barack Obama’s second term as president. Last year she became the first director of a new climate center created by the Harvard School of Public Health. It’s called C-CHANGE (the Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment). Scientific American associate editor Andrea Thompson spoke with McCarthy by phone just prior to this past week’s U.N. Climate Action Summit.
