Breakthrough Dialogues


Nov 11, 2019

Today’s episode answers all your big climate science questions. Alex chats with Zeke Hausfather, Breakthrough’s new Director of Climate and Energy, who joins us with over a decade of experience working as a scientist and researcher in the clean tech sector, Berkeley Earth, Project Drawdown, and Carbon Brief. They talk about the real-world difference between 1.5° and 2° warming (and 3°, and 4°…), the easiest sectors to decarbonize (and how), whether scientific uncertainty changes the kinds of solutions we should pursue, and, finally: how are we actually doing?
