#105 - Restoration's ambition

24 mins | Nov 30, 2021

Today's episode from 30th November 2021. Up first today: the process of repairing human damage to ecosystems was at the very heart of the COP26 promises, but the practice of restoration needs modernising. We take a look at the history of ecosystem restoration, the troubles with its definition and the future. Then later on, how true to life is the TV series Succession? We hear from a therapist to the very wealth about how sometimes there are problems money can’t solve. With restoration at the centre stage of global commitments to achieve sustainable development goals, reverse declines in biodiversity, and mitigate climate change, the need to bring the practice up to date could not be more urgent. Author and academic Eric Higgs explains in The MIT Press Reader. In the world of billionaires, money is like a dirty secret, but over the years, Clay Cockrell — therapist to billionaires — has developed a great deal of empathy for those who have far too much. Through his experiences and the TV series Succession, discover the trials, tribulations and toxic excess afflicting the super-wealthy and the isolation they suffer from being trapped inside a tiny bubble. From The Guardian. 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.
