Technology Won’t Stop the Climate Apocalypse with Dr. Dana Fisher

The climate crisis is unfolding very day, with many inevitable consequences looming in the near future. While we may hope for clean energy or fossil fuel alternatives to save the day, climate change is more than just a technological issue—it's fundamentally a social problem. When tend to view climate change only from an ecological or technological perspective, but we require a sociological view to understand how we can collectively solve it. This week, Adam discusses these complexities with Dr. Dana Fisher, Director of the Center for Environment, Community, & Equity and author of Saving Ourselves: From Climate Shocks to Climate Action. They explore the role of hope in the climate crisis, strategies for collective action, and the possibility that things may worsen before they improve. Find Dana's book at factuallypod.com/books
