06/ "Our Exponential Predicament" with Kevin Hester

The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the exponential function.
— Albert A. Bartlett

In this episode, Project Sanity host Scott Andrew is joined by Auckland-based Kevin Hester, host of the Nature Bats Last radio show.

We discuss the ongoing collapse of our biosphere, what nonlinear change really means, self-reinforcing feedback loops, the "green" movement, the false 2 degrees "political" target, biodiversity collapse and species extinction, the newly recognised phenomenon of "global dimming", joining the dots across domains and the extraordinary burden now falling on the shoulders of the younger generations to mitigate this great unraveling of our Earth System.
