This week. Brie talks climate with David Wallace-Wells, New York Magazine Editor at Large and author of The Uninhabitable Earth -- one of the most sobering climate reads out there. Wallace-Wells helps Brie unpack what exactly is in the infrastructure bills with respect to climate, and asks whether AOC's claim that "America's back" at the COP 26 climate conference is a wee bit premature. Brie & Wallace-Wells also discuss what is and isn't being achieved at the Glasgow climate conference, whether climate goals are reachable in the absence of any global accountability mechanism, and the case climate reparations. What does the global north owe the global south, and is there any way the global north will pay absent pitchforks and revolution? Finally, we close out this week's public episode with an interview with one of the climate protestors who famously blocked Joe Manchin's Maserati last week. Kidus Girma, fresh off a two week hunger strike, talks climate strategy for the future, and what parties eager to prevent the end of the world as we know it can do.
