In this episode, we look back at the history of climate science, from the dawn of the Industrial Revolution through the Kyoto Protocol.
Then, we look at the possibilities and risks of the near future by speaking with climate scientist Dr. Benjamin Strauss from Climate Central.
Finally, we offer some thoughts of hope and optimism about how we can stem the rising tides of climate change and ecological instability.
Below is the chart referenced in the episode, an updated version of the projections made by Donella Meadows in 1972.
