The Unforgiving Math of Staying Under 2 Degrees

 This show was broadcast on Mon 16th January 2017
“In the landmark Paris accord, 195 countries from around the world agreed that they would collectively keep average global temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees, and that they would pursue efforts to limit warming to 1.5 degrees. But what does science have to say on actually keeping those goals? And how fast, and by how much, will we have to cut our emissions to get there?”
Professor Kevin Anderson, deputy director of the influential Tyndall Centre, is a climate scientist who looks at exactly this question. And the math he comes away with, isn’t pretty. We look at the small timeframe we have to make the Paris declarations a reality, and why it won’t be as straightforward as perhaps some of us have been led to believe.”

Summer Series – Psychologist Per Espen Stoknes on Thinking about Global Warming

This show was broadcast on Mon 26th December 2016

Listen in at 3cr – latest episode

In conversation with Per Espen Stoknes, Lyn Bender, Susie Burke, and with Vivien Langford.

“The more facts that pile up about global warming, the greater the resistance to them grows, making it harder to enact measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare communities for the inevitable change ahead.”

“It is a catch-22 that starts, says psychologist and economist Per Espen Stoknes, from an inadequate understanding of the way most humans think, act, and live in the world around them. With dozens of examples—from the private sector to government agencies—Stoknes shows how to retell the story of climate change and, at the same time, create positive, meaningful actions that can be supported even by deniers.”

This special re-broadcast is BZE Radio’s Christmas Summer Series producer’s pick of the year for 2016. We hope you enjoy.

This show was broadcast on Mon 19th December 2016

Listen in from 3cr – latest episode

In this interview (courtesy of The Elephant Podcast and Kevin Kaners), Guardian columnist George Monbiot argues that the climate crisis isn’t just an isolated problem, but one that’s intimately tied to other systemic issues in our societies – from the run-away political power of corporations which are undermining our democracies, to the rampant consumerism culture that dominates the West.
