#28 - The UN climate report
Today's episode from 13th August 2021. First off this morning: a new climate report spells out the disastrous effect of humans on earth but there is a silver lining if we choose to find it. We explore the options of how we can make amends to mother nature. Then later, take your head out of that book, unplug those earphones and have a chat with a stranger today- it might be good for you. We find out why striking up conversations may be beneficial at times like this. The planet is on track to exceed very dangerous warming levels, leaving us with fewer and fewer options. James Temple analyses how the UN’s climate report reminded us that removing carbon dioxide from the environment is crucial to the devastating effects of global warming. But, these technologies are in their early stages and will be complex to put into action. ‘The Power of Strangers’ makes the case for striking up conversations with unfamiliar folk - now more than ever. Andrew Zaleski explores how Joe Keohane’s new book reveals the therapeutic power of a behaviour that is seemingly contradictory to human nature. 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.
