Pass Blue: Raising the Climate Change Battle to Geoengineer the Earth

Interviews also with NGOs. "“So here the question comes around in a different way,” he said. “Can we design a system that will be good for everybody; or, if it is not good for everybody, what can we do about that? These are the kind of governance challenges that our initiative is going to try to address.”"

Beyond One Degree: We can succeed, but humanity is about to choose to fail

"In this episode we meet Kevin Anderson, professor of Climate and Energy at the University of Manchester. Kevin talks about the widespread illusion that we can mitigate climate change within business as usual, small steps and some future technology. Instead the understanding that we have a carbon budget forces us to reduce the emissions of CO2 with about 10% per year, starting now."
