Nick is joined by Adam Cardilini to discuss the movie Don’t Look Up (Netflix) and compare individual actions for the climate commonly promoted in the environmental movement with scientific research on the most effective actions. We do this by discussing the actions promoted on the website https://www.count-us-in.org/en-gb/project/ and the following scientific article: Wynes, S. and Nicholas, K. A. 2017. The climate mitigation gap: education and government recommendations miss the most effective individual actions. Environ. Res. Lett., 12(7), 1-9.

This show is replayed from Nick’s other show Freedom of Species on 3CR Community Radio. You can subscribe to this show on a bunch of apps including iTunes and Spotify.
