It may be too late to avoid the worst consequences of our warming planet. But we could still adapt to them.
113: How to survive climate change
It's time to shift our approach to climate change. The truth is, it may very well be too late to avoid the worst consequences of our warming planet — lost ecosystems, millions of plants and animals going extinct, scarce water and more extreme weather. It may be time to focus more on technology that will help us adapt. That's the focus of "How We Survive," the new series from Molly's other show, "Marketplace Tech." Here to talk with us about climate adaptation and how it'll impact the economy and society is Solomon Hsiang, University of California, Berkeley, public policy professor and Stanford visiting scholar.
