#132 - Saving the "doomsday'" glacier

19 mins | Jan 26, 2022

Today's episode from 26th January 2022. First this morning: It's the size of Florida and its melting billions of tonnes of water into the ocean each year. We're discussing the "doomsday" glacier and the geoengineering methods that could be used to stop it from breaking completely. Then later, if you've been doing something for a long time because you're simply too used to it, have you thought about the opportunities awaiting you if you stopped? Discover the "selling your position" principle and learn how it can impact your success. The future of our planet is in the metaphorical hands of the Thwaites Glacier, a mass of ice in Western Antarctica, that could trigger the flooding of coastal cities around the world, threatening millions of lives. For MIT Technology Review, James Temple explores the latest preventative technology, including massive berms and underwater curtains, that could preserve crucial ice sheets for centuries, that could buy us crucial time to stabilise the climate. What's the biggest impact on your success? We're all hardwired to value something we own as more than what it's worth. For example, you'll be more upset about losing $10 than you would be happy about finding it. We've all heard about this concept, but not many know how to combat our human nature. For Fast Company, Brian Scordato, founder of Tacklebox Accelerator, discusses how you can apply the extraordinary method of "selling your position" to break the loss-aversion spell. 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.
