Two Degrees Beyond Safe - Weather has become destabilized around the world. We have new science about risk and the way forward – just released by the Royal Society. From the UK, lead editor Dann Mitchell is our guest. Environmental lawyer Robert Verchick asks: who pays for climate loss and damage made by Western civilization? How much is a country worth? Where will millions and millions of climate refugees go? It’s talk at the highest levels, right here on Radio Ecoshock. Thirty thousand experts, policy people and diplomats are in Poland, planning for the next round of climate talks. They are pushed by a wave of new science warning two degrees is too far beyond safe. Talk of desperate measures to cool planet Earth is coming out of the closet.
