Explainer: What to know about ‘Beyond Catastrophe’

The climate future is coming into focus. It is better than the 5oC hell-scape we have feared, but much worse than our hoped for 1.5oC. How we build that tumultuous new world is up for grabs and is the heart of a recent article (Beyond Catastrophe: A new climate reality is coming into view, by David Wallace Wells) that gives lots of food for thought. Listen in are we process some of the ideas in order to give you a head start when you read it yourself.

The reading list:

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.

Thanks for listening.
