In 58 minute program, good break point at 29 min 20 seconds, for those who need it.
Normally on Radio Ecoshock, my expert guests do the talking, while I listen and learn along with you. But this week there are major developments in our story here on Earth that are not coming through to you clearly, or not reported at all.
Later in the program I'll interview Deborah Frieze the author of a new book about "Walk Out, Walk On". Its a strategy for getting out of an unproductive life, or one damaging the earth, and finding your own path. She's brilliant.
I also interview Dr. Jochen Hinkel from the Global Climate Forum in Berlin. He's lead author of a new paper which tries to calculate the economic damage to the
world from rising seas. It's a game-changer for sure.
But first I cover heat waves in Alaska, California, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, and Siberia, and floods in the UK, with an eye to the Jet Stream now diverted by climate change. Why this is the start of different lives for most of us.
