This week Eric welcomes to the show author and journalist Dahr Jamail to discuss climate change, climate politics in the Age of Trump, and our responsibilities to future generations. The conversation begins with a discussion of the emotional and psychological impact of an issue as enormous as climate change, and how we can even discuss it without falling into despondency. From there, Eric and Dahr discuss everything from climate change trends to polar ice, the impact of methane, agriculture and food production, and so much more. The second half of the show features an examination of the impact that the Trump Administration has had on climate science and environmental regulation, as well as the increased influence of China in renewable energy and environmental responsibility. All this and so much more in this wide-ranging interview on CounterPunch Radio.
