“Most people consider science the most trustworthy authority – I hope this will continue when scientists warn us about climate change.” ~ Yuval Noah Harari
Outrage and Optimism Podcast hosts, Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac speak with Yuval Noah Harari, historian, futurist, philosopher, and best-selling author, who is best known for his book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. A phenomenal read.
Yuval shares with us the power of the stories we choose to believe about ourselves. How good they can be, and how they can also trap us. We get his thoughts on the narrative of the climate crisis, and what it would take us to believe to survive it. We talked about #COVID-19 and the #ClimateCrisis, the future of humanity and what we can and should do in a post pandemic world. As Yuval says, today most people consider science the most trustworthy authority and he discusses his hope that acting on the basis of facts will continue after this crisis, when scientists warn us about #ClimateChange. “Ecological collapse is much bigger than COVID-19 – hopefully this is a necessary wake up call.”
