ð¤ Podcasts The latest climate-related podcast episodes.
ð§ (https://www.myclimatejourney.co/cc-episodes/bill-weihl-climatevoice) #233: BLACK FRIDAY (http://www.sustainababble.fish/?p=1422) Sigh. Itâs probably not OK to go warm and fuzzy in our special areas at the thought of being hoodwinked into buying sh*t we donât need just a month before we all lose our minds over the next orgy of mindless consumerism. And itâs probably right and proper to get het up and misanthropic about it.
ð§ (https://www.myclimatejourney.co/cc-episodes/bill-weihl-climatevoice) 130. Opening Hearts with Elizabeth Wathuti (https://outrageandoptimism.libsyn.com/130-opening-hearts-with-elizabeth-wathuti) With the ink still drying on The Glasgow Pact, weâre already hearing the results from Glasgow being labeled in binary terms like âSuccessâ and âFailureâ While we know that some stunning pledges and progressive language in the Pact came from some of the negotiations, it is also true that historically these pledges have not been met completely, or have been missed entirely. Full stop.
ð§ (https://www.myclimatejourney.co/cc-episodes/bill-weihl-climatevoice) REWIND FINDING THE HEART TO TALK ABOUT CLIMATE (https://www.climateone.org/audio/rewind-finding-heart-talk-about-climate) More than half of Americans surveyed by Pew have talked about climate change one to two times in recent weeks â and that number is even higher for Gen Z and Millenials. A majority of all groups surveyed think climate should be a top priority to ensure a sustainable future.
