Before Paris, Some Good News About Climate Change


There are now only 39 days to go until the world’s nations convene in Paris for the United Nations Climate Summit. Six years ago, talks in Copenhagen ended in chaos. Is there any reason to suppose Paris will deliver anything more than well-padded expense accounts for delegates and hot air on the issues? In this week’s Book Talk, I talk to best-selling Australian author Tim Flannery about his new book, Atmosphere of Hope: Searching For Solutions To The Climate Change Crisis,  which counsels cautious optimism by showing how the millions of small actions taken by individuals are driving down oil consumption and points out how new “Third Way” carbon-capture technologies promise to reduce emissions and create massive economic opportunities.
