Climate Change Therapy - Ep. 4 - Hank's Brother

Welcome back to Climate Change Therapy, the podcast where we see how long we can talk about climate change, as a test of endurance, just like holding your breath underwater. Because it's important. Because if we can just get the conversation going, however painful, then that's one more step forward for humanity in the greatest struggle of our time. So let's get right to it! On today's episode (12/21/18), podcast host Hank Felsman welcomes his brother onto the show to open up about his struggles with the nagging existential threat of climate change, including:
