climate doc ,

Excellent!!

Pricing Nature takes complex policy and climate science matters and puts them into terms for no -experts to understand. The importance of what the US does to address climate change now, particularly through the pricing of greenhouse gases, comes through very clearly. Plus, amazing experts are featured! Great listen!!

10/10

Fascinating, clear, informative, and even funny. These folks explain the complexities behind this seemingly obvious climate policy. Can’t wait to hear more

Akamu77 ,

Riveting! No, seriously!!

“What are you listening to?“ My wife asked. “I’m listening to this energy podcast about the history of climate policy leading up to the Paris agreement. It’s absolutely riveting! And kind of funny too.”

“That sounds… Surprising?“

And I suppose it is, but this feels like really important stuff and very accessible and the way they tell the story.
