It seems to me that there are some people around here interested in the subject, so I thought I'd share this:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/w3ct1nb2
Climatologist Michael Mann interviewed on BBC HARDTalk.
Nothing really new, but I think he outlines the state of the art in a very effective way, dismissing outright pessimism and some common misconceptions that are easy to run into (at least I did), especially if one reads a lot of news about the subject. At the same time, this man has even received serious threats by the usual suspects, oil companies and the likes, and he certainly doesn't pull punches.
He also addresses how the Biden administration is doing in regard to climate change and what's going to come in terms of international policy for the immediate future.

mankind at best.... do you know the story of Ferdinandea ? It's a very tiny small island born in 1831 from volcano eruption in Sicilia
at the time various countries tried to make the island their land, Sicilia, England, Spain, they all tried to get it with a super extra project to build nice houses for rich peoples
after few months the island was down the sea, back to the ground
some even put their name onto it when it was under the sea

this story is toi me a good resume of mankind bullshit, thinking not better than any animal, like a cat for example
with a view to the future of few months long and that's it
god told them

Too little, too late. The time to take serious climate action was 3 decades ago. As a species, we're fucked.

Was that your takeaway from the interview?
