Tom and Don talk to Alex AKA lessens ( @anti_minotaur on Twitter) about left approaches to climate policy and the danger of catastrophic thinking. Partially a reply to an earlier episode with Mike, Alex argues that climate change is a big problem that will require big solutions but not some strategy of degrowth/simplification. Apology: Alex's mic cut out very briefly here and there, and we did our best to clean it up.
