To a Lesser Degree Podcast

Given that the effects of climate change - wildfires, flooding, stronger hurricanes, more frequent droughts - are already being felt in our lives, what can our societies do to stave off even more extreme consequences? From The Economist (previously featured in the 03-25-2016 Scout Report), To a Lesser Degree is an eight-part podcast series on "the technologies, the adaptation and the politics needed to address extreme climate change." With hosts Vijay Vaitheeswaran, Catherine Brahic, and Oliver Morton, each episode explores a particular aspect of climate change through conversations with expert guests and journalists from the magazine. For instance, the October 11, 2021 episode "Going in reverse" included a discussion with Nathalie Seddon on carbon storage and a visit to an Icelandic carbon capture facility. As of this writing, episodes have tackled priorities for avoiding devastating climate change ("The challenge"), the efficacy of personal behavioral changes ("Best behaviour"), and how to fund climate change mitigation efforts ("Paying for it"). Readers can listen to the series on the page linked above or find it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Pocket Casts, Google, Overcast, or other podcatchers.
