Only the perspective of developed countries

I am a big fan but you should invite someone representing a developing county to give a different perspective to climate action. Comparing cigarettes with climate change when talking about fair solutions undermines completely the challenge that climate represents for developing countries. Smokers did not become rich while making others sick.Then, with Mr Gurria, why is no one calling things by its name? He mentioned developed and emerging economies that are transforming their own economies but are at the same time selling coal plants to developing countries with great financing conditions. Who are they? China in Africa and Asia. Who else? This is what should be driving the outrage but it’s not...Are you ever going to talk to a developing country representative?

Great Concept

I am encouraged by this podcast’s concept of outrage and optimism towards the troubling state of the climate crisis. It features wonderful interviews of interesting and intelligent people. Unfortunately, one of the hosts continues to rudely interrupt the other hosts and guests, making the podcast increasingly difficult to listen to. Regardless, I do hope it becomes more popular and has an impact.

The podcast the world needs.

This project is a desperately needed perspective on the climate crisis: you acknowledge both the hope and the anger that we need to inspire and power us through this. Really looking forward to seeing where this goes!

Can you please talk about Factory Farming?

Meat consumption is a large contributor to pollution.

Needs work

Very timely. Much needed but could be a bit more scientific1. Fails to consider that we are pass the point where simply going renewable for our energy by 2050 will somehow "cure" or reverse climate change.2. Fails to invite researchers and advocates and critics of Solar Radiation Management and Direct Atmospheric Capture.

Brilliant!!

This is very timely. At the point where we are at now, it can be hard to have any optimism, in this postcast we are reminded that we need to have optimism in order to keep going, it is hard road ahead but we need to have hope that we can change things around, positivism is necessary.

Brilliant and timely!

In the face of the inescapable crisis of our planet there is always a light of hope. This is an excellent podcast with the voices of leaders, visionaries and researchers of nature for its understanding and protection. GRACIAS Christiana por la sinergia del Optimismo Global, espero que tu esfuerzo se aúne al de tantos otros y se premie con el cambio en el comportamiento humano antes de que sea muy tarde...

Thank You!

Finally - things are happening. I’ve been waiting for this moment for over 40 years when I wrote my first essay, in middle school, about the environmental damage we were causing to the planet! I can’t wait to listen to this every week to learn, keep up to date, and remain optimistic that we WILL fix this! And it’s great that you’ll be meeting and interviewing celebrities who support Climate Change. Only problem with that is the amount of flying that goes on. I was just asking my husband why it is that people don’t use digital conferencing more instead of travelling to locations? Just a thought. Good luck!
