Episode Info:

In Part 2 of our 2-episode carbon footprint series, TPTM hosts Reem, Spencer, and Sarah reflect on the results of their two-week-long challenge to drastically reduce their personal carbon emissions through changes to their diets, commutes, consumption habits, and electricity use. But do individual emissions reductions matter when corporations and industries continue to pollute with impunity? We can’t achieve ambitious climate goals – like California’s pledge to reduce emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 – through individual actions. So what else will it take?  

Reem turns to Bob Epstein of Environmental Entrepreneurs, and then Professor Dan Kammen of the Goldman School, to learn about the transformations in technology, policy, and the environmental movement as a whole, that will facilitate success in climate mitigation. In this episode, we discuss the technological potential of carbon sequestration, China’s political advantages in climate progress, the benefits and pitfalls of market-based climate regulations, the future of the environmentalist movement, and what Bob eats for breakfast.
