    Billionaires Are Ruining The Planet (w/ Peter S. Goodman)

    Billionaires Are Ruining The Planet (w/ Peter S. Goodman)

    In Davos Man, an excellent new book by New York Times’ Global Economics Correspondent Peter S. Goodman, the case is clear: billionaires are making massive profits off extracting resources from the planet while social services are being gutted. From climate change to COVID-19, Goodman shows how decades of slashing taxes on the richest people and cutting social spending has accelerated the 21st century's greatest crises and threatened liberal democracy around the globe. How is this happening? Why is this happening? What can we do about it? In this in-depth, fascinating conversation, Goodman explains the path we took to get here and the direction we need to take now to better govern our societies and protect the future.

    Major Global Shifts Amid The Climate Crisis (w/ Financial Times' Simon Mundy)

    Major Global Shifts Amid The Climate Crisis (w/ Financial Times' Simon Mundy)

    This is one of the most wide-ranging, comprehensive episodes we've ever had. Simon Mundy, who serves as the Moral Money editor of the Financial Times, spent years traveling through 26 countries on six continents finding a diverse set of stories and people who represent many of the massive shifts underway around the globe. In his new book, Race For Tomorrow: Survival, Innovation, And Profit On The Front Lines Of The Climate Crisis, he details those travels and the vast disparities and outcomes people are experiencing as unjust global transformations occur. We talk about ancient Mammoth tusk hunting in Siberia, Cobalt mining in the Congo, breakthrough innovation in Iceland, climate displacement in the Philippines, and much, much more.

    Adam McKay On 'Don't Look Up'

    Adam McKay On 'Don't Look Up'

    Adam McKay is the writer/director of some of our favorite films over the years - from Anchorman to The Big Short to Vice and more. So when we heard he was making a disaster film that serves as an allegory for climate change, we...um...freaked out. And we freaked even more when he was kind of enough to join us on the show to discuss the film, the power structures behind the climate crisis he wanted to satirize, and what he hopes people will take from the movie. This is a fantastic conversation.

    Remembering Dr. Thomas Lovejoy (w/ WWF's Carter Roberts)

    Remembering Dr. Thomas Lovejoy (w/ WWF's Carter Roberts)

    The world lost a legendary biologist and conservationist when Dr. Thomas Lovejoy passed away in December at the age of 80. Carter Roberts, president and CEO of World Wildlife Fund in the United States, knew Dr. Lovejoy well. So we asked him to join us on the podcast today to honor the memory of Dr. Lovejoy and share what he meant to WWF and talk about the legacy he leaves behind. Carter also discusses the recent passing of another conservation legend, Dr. E.O. Wilson, and what he meant as a luminary in his field and his contributions to WWF.
    Later in the show, we replay our May 2020 interview with Dr. Thomas Lovejoy.

    The 'Doomsday Glacier's' Disastrous Potential (w/ Dr. Richard Alley)

    The 'Doomsday Glacier's' Disastrous Potential (w/ Dr. Richard Alley)

    This week, we spoke with Dr. Richard Alley, a glaciologist and member of the International Thwaites Glacier Collaborative, about why this particular glacier - dubbed the 'Doomsday Glacier by Jeff Goodell - could raise sea levels beyond catastrophic levels and cause so much damage to coastal communities around the world. We also discuss how soon and how likely that might actually happen, and the latest findings that his group recently published.
    Dr. Richard Alley is the Evan Pugh University Professor of Geosciences at Penn State, where he focuses on glaciology, ice sheet stability, and understanding how Earth’s climate has changed by examining ice cores.
    Check out the International Thwaites Glacier Collaborative's presentation to the American Geophysical Union in December 2021.

    Climate Change In 2021: The Biden Era Begins (Part Two)

    Climate Change In 2021: The Biden Era Begins (Part Two)

    When Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump in 2020, it marked a massive shift for the direction of the United States' action on climate change. And once President Biden was inaugurated in 2021, his administration brought big expectations to the Oval Office for how it would combat the crisis.
    So what would Joe Biden commit to through executive action? What would Congress pass to fight climate change? How would the United States repair its own reputation on climate action on the international stage?
    We answer all of those questions and more in Part Two of The Climate Pod's 2021 Year in Review: The Biden Era Begins, featuring clips from interviews we've conducted with guests like Governor Jay Inslee, Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Sen. Tina Smith, Dallas Goldtooth, Jane Kleeb, Rep. Sean Casten, Rep. Donald McEachin, Rep. Earl Blumenauer, Time's Justin Worland, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, Dr. Michael Mann, and many more
