    News from a World in Flux Ep. 9: Finance + Physics = Climate Repair? Ft. Delton Chen

    News from a World in Flux Ep. 9: Finance + Physics = Climate Repair? Ft. Delton Chen

    EPISODE 9: Finance + Physics = Climate Repair? Ft. Delton ChenIn this episode Clare and Delton Chen explore Delton's work on a concept of a global carbon reward, an economic concept which could provide a carrot and not just a stick in the field of international economic interventions. As with all these conversations with experts on solutions, Extinction Rebellion isn’t advocating for this above and beyond any other approaches. Hopefully looking at different options with the experts who propose them can help us to get a rounded view on what’s being proposed and what might be possible. We hope it sparks interesting thinking and reflections. Please, share, comment, subscribe, like, mobilise, and donate! https://chuffed.org/xr/uk

Needs to be heard louder

The XR Podcast message needs to be heard loud and clear the world over. They aren’t great entertainers, but I must give them credit for the essential work that they do.

The end of the world is racist

Eating fetuses is not cannibalism.
