This episode of Warm Regards explores apocalyptic narratives, the role they play in inspiring—or limiting—climate action, and what it means to be hopeful about the future in a changing climate. Jacquelyn and Ramesh talk with Zeke Hausfather about what the latest climate science and data tell us about how much warming we can expect by 2100, and then with Diego Arguedas Ortiz about the different kinds of hope that can help lead to climate action.
