In this episode of the Waking Up podcast, Sam Harris speaks with Joseph Romm about how the climate is changing and how we know that human behavior is the primary cause. They discuss why small changes in temperature matter so much, the threats of sea-level rise and desertification, the best and worst case scenarios, the Paris Climate Agreement, the politics surrounding climate science, and many other topics.
This is one of the best podcasts I’ve heard with regard to climate change. I changed some opinions, I have revised some positions, I found – for the first time in a long time – a reason to be optimistic. It was one of the best Sam Harris podcasts EVER and although I don’t agree with everything Mr Harris thinks (as shared via his podcast) I have respect for him and listen to all his podcasts.
Strongly recommended to listen to this entire podcast at your earliest opportunity.
