Relates statistics about per capita carbon emissions to
national debt burdens. Suggests that instead of charging "rich" countries a climate debt, we absolve all national debts - saving the global South 200 billion a year. Proposes a US plan for counties to keep 2% of their own income tax for every 2% the county lowers its carbon emissions. This would promote local sovereignty, defund the military, and lower emissions 20% by 2020, 40% by 2030, or even 80% by 2050.

Reads the poems "Almost a Conversation" by Mary Oliver, and "The Seven of Pentacles" by Marge Piercy. Recommends that Evo Morales, Naomi Klein, Vendana Shiva, and Desmond Tutu read Barabara Ehrenreich,
to understand why Americans aren't rolling in the dough. Uses the case study of Firestone and Mittal Steel in Liberia to explain odious debt, vulture funds, and liability sheltering. From Clinton Callahan's article, "Beware the Psychopath, My Son," extrapolates that
corporations are, by definition, psychopaths as persons without conscience or culpability.

Bonus interview with Barbara Ehrenreich on her new book Bright-Sided, on theodicy, God and apologies, and supply-chain ethics. A fun and lively exchange in which Barbara admits she was wrong and wishes we could keep on talking!
