‎We Live in The Good Place. And We’re Screwing It Up

I haven’t linked to an Ezra Klein podcast episode in a while, this is a good one. It’s the first episode of his “climate cluster” and he’s speaking with Kate Marvel. They cover a lot of ground, and she’s providing some excellent answers. One interesting part is that Klein doesn’t seem to believe “we” can keep global warming below 2°C through normal democratic political means, so he’s trying to figure out what’s worse; overshooting that warming (so he’s trying to better understand what that means) or falling into some form of far-reaching authoritarian government (or, one assumes, revolution and chaos).
