Journalist David Wallace-Wells (@dwallacewells), author of The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming and deputy editor of New York Magazine, joins us. How bad is the climate change threat, really? How one degree of warming will lead to 150 million additional deaths a year. The best use of our current efforts to counter climate change. The choice developing nations face between rapid economic growth that will lift people out of poverty and abiding by best carbon practices. How do we even get to a "we" when we have a system of global market competition?

The crew engages in a spirited discussion of what is to be done.
