We hosted the latest edition of Sound Bites, our series on our food and our world. We examined the historical context of the climate change debate. The discussion springs from a 2014 article by Charles Mann in the Atlantic Monthly: “How to Talk about Climate Change so People Will Listen.”
Our guests are: Dr. Paul Sabin, associate professor in the Department of History at Yale University, Director of Undergraduate Studies for Yale’s undergraduate Environmental Studies major, and author of The Bet: Paul Ehrlich, Julian Simon, and Our Gamble Over Earth’s Future; and Dr. Dale Jamieson, professor of Environmental Studies and Philosophy, Affiliated Professor of Law, and Director of the Animal Studies Initiative at New York University, and author of Reason in a Dark Time: Why the Struggle to Stop Climate Change Failed – and What It Means For Our Future.
