    HOTM: The Solutions Under Our Noses

    HOTM: The Solutions Under Our Noses

    There are plenty of people sitting around waiting for some magical new or improved technology to come along and fix the mess we’ve made for ourselves with the climate emergency. That’s probably not going to happen—and, anyway, we have the tools we need to ditch fossil fuels now. In the first part of the episode, reporter Molly Schwartz looks into some of these solutions, including wind farm construction and carbon capture, utilization, and storage.
    In the second part of the program, host John D. Sutter speaks with Mafalda Duarte, the head of the Climate Investment Funds. (The Climate Investment Funds is FP Studios’ partnering organization for Heat of the Moment.) Duarte explains that her group’s goal is not only to give loans for solar farms and other green projects but also to help tip the scales in favor of a clean energy revolution.

Great show, annoying host

The stories and topics on this show are great and I really look forward to each new episode.

The host of the show however is quite irritating. Very annoying voice.

Just another Liberal Bias Whiners Fest! Childish and Moronic

You are a joke like NY Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC. Congrats. One day you will understand what society actually thinks or your constant state of panic that you call journalism. Try telling the truth for once. You are UK based. Why don’t one of you limey blokes do a story on the disgrace to your country, Christopher Steele. That’s gold right under your nose. Oh wait, you guys actually wrote stories for 3 years that had zero validity about Russiagate! Won’t hear word one about the real story which is Obama abusing his power as usual and trying to hamstring someone. No, you just don’t like trump and will keep lying. Guess what, we won’t believe you anymore. We already don’t. You are a disgrace to your profession.
