25 mins | Aug 24, 2021

Today's episode from 25th August 2021. On today's show: Did you know that the world came together to tackle climate change more than 30 years ago? We learn about the Montreal Agreement and how it may have prevented far worse global warming for us today. Then later on, add a dash of positive thinking and a heavy dose of tangible action and you have the perfect glass-half-full cocktail for success and greater happiness. We explore the psychology of optimism. An agreement from the 1980s may have already saved the planet from several degrees of global warming. From MIT Technology Review. Optimism won’t translate into something tangible without action. Heather C. Lench, professor and head in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Texas A&M University, explores how to make the most of an optimistic outlook. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
