Climate Change Therapy - Ep. 3 - Z Nalywayko

Welcome back to Climate Change Therapy, the podcast where we practice talking about climate change, or in other words, where we work through the problem of how to talk about climate change at parties without being a major bummer. On today's episode (12/18/18), BlockRadius co-founder Z Nalywayko and fellow BlockRadius co-founder Hank Felsman, both of them urban planners by occupation, cut right to the chase on the issues that count, including:

6:30 – The harrowing Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report and the anticipated effects of climate change

15:00 – The possibility that we can limit global warming to 1.5°C

18:00 – The rocks in Oman

20:50 – A little debate about carbon sequestration (Z is for; Hank is against)

24:15 – The Tottenham Spurs (Z is for; Hank prefers basketball)

27:30 – The fundamental question of whether humans are unique; but first, The Brothers Karamazov

40:30 – How various occupations can help address the problem of climate change

52:50 – Genetic engineering, the possibility of living forever, and the meaning of life

1:07:00 – The mystery of why the economic case for addressing climate change is more compelling for people than the purely environmental case
