The Climate Pod

Mar 18, 2020

How is the novel coronavirus creating new concerns in the fight against climate change? This week, we dig into the subject with a couple of great guests. 

First, TIME's Justin Worland joins the show to talk about how the global pandemic could impact international negotiations, the Paris Agreement, oil price wars, and climate activism. 

Then, Joel Makower, chairman and co-founder of GreenBiz, tells how he'd like to see our response to the coronavirus favor sustainability and making businesses more green. How can we build a better future out of this mess? He gives some tips to charting that path.
