Essential listening for any Climate follower
This is a great podcast; Doug gets some great guests: Vox's David Roberts for a really frank conversation on climate adaptation and mitigation; the issues were are likely to face in the future and why, and not just cos of climate but also cos of human nature.
Mark Morano was a great guest too: a good-natured interview with a climate skeptic to then pick apart HOW he communicates and why it is so problematic for progressive climate action.
I would highly recommend this podcast for anyone interested in climate change. I really thought that climate was going to be rather niche in the podcast-sphere but, rest assured, there is considerable quality out there.
I would also recommend Forecast and the Sustainable Futures podcast
If anyone sees any others just tweet to me on @climatevision, I would like to give them a listen.
