#79 - COP26: think big on climate

21 mins | Oct 25, 2021

Today's episode from 25th October 2021. We're starting off the week looking ahead to COP26. With 30-thousand attendees from 200 countries, it is the most significant climate conference in years. We've got a piece comparing the current environmental crisis to the second world war, when the US made such unprecedented changes that it helped prevent further disaster. Then later, tackling worsening climate issues is going to mean breaking some bad habits. We've got some practical techniques that will help you break through those negative cycles. From the Guardian, George Monbiot tells the astonishing story of how the US entered the second world war and why it should be on everyone’s minds as Cop26 approaches. Creating a habit requires encoding a new set of automatic behaviours, but breaking them is an entirely different story. From 'Progressive Extremism' to 'Don't vs Can't', Nir Eyal examines why you're struggling to kick your bad habits, and what you can do about it. 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.
