Cooperation to avert climate change – with Gianluca Grimalda [Video]

The path of the EOF school 2022 continues, and so does the dialogue between the world of plants and humans. This path and this dialogue do not want to impose human categories on plants, nor do they want to do the opposite. Listening to plants for a new economic paradigm means learning another language that allows us to think about the most pressing issues of our world, including climate change deterioration, while looking at plants as a source for inspiration without forgetting that we are humans and that we interact with our fellows within a house that was entrusted to us by grace and not by merit. This is why, in this second edition of the EoF school, we go back and forth: from fundamental economic problems to plants and vice-versa. Professor Grimalda’s lesson will help us set another point in the ping-pong between the world of plants and economics, specifically by applying the methods of behavioral economics.

Let’s Talk Science Presents: Let’s Talk Human Evolution [Video]

Learn about Human Evolution with Dr. Benjamin Collins, Archaeologist, Adjunct Assistant Professor, Dept. of Anthropology, University of Manitoba. His research focuses on how past forager populations adapted to rapid climate changes in Southern Africa from 150,000 years ago to the recent past. Specifically, he is interested in how changes in artifact styles across space and through time reflect past social networks, and how these networks insulated past peoples from rapid and disadvantageous changes in climate and environment.

Global Assessment on Impacts of Climate Change: IPCC Report Preview [Video]

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is releasing its report on the impacts on climate change. Richie Merzian outlines what we can expect from the report, and what has changed since the last one was released 7 years ago. “It’ll articulate that these impacts of climate change are happening right now. These aren’t for future generations. Like the black summer bushfires we had in Australia or the extreme heat in the US, flooding in Europe. These things are happening right now and they’re increasing in terms of frequency in terms of severity.””What is the cost of climate change? So often we think about the cost of taking climate action, switching energy, or cars. This will paint the picture of what is the cost of inaction and that cost just continues to grow.”said Richie Merzian on Ticker News. [Originally aired 23 Feb 2022]
