About this episode

What role does fear play in awakening humanity to avoiding it’s own demise? Can fear sustain long-term action and help us avoid climate change? This week we talk the scary bits of climate truth with author of “The Uninhabitable Earth” David Wallace-Wells. He discusses with us the responsibility of communicating the full potential picture of climate change as a journalist, and how more people on Earth need to hear what could happen if we do not act now.

Plus, a live musical performance from Billy Bragg!
