This isn't an episode about fixing climate change. It's a story about how to live with what's happening. It doesn't matter if you disagree over why we're seeing more heat waves, higher average temperatures, and melting permafrost—it matters what we're going to do about it. So how do humans learn to live in a hotter world?
There is a surprising number of simple things that both individuals and governments can do that can turn "unbearable and dangerous" into "uncomfortable but hopefully safe". Will we do them? Or will we spend the next few months arguing about a Carbon Tax while elderly and vulnerable people die in sweltering apartments with no air conditioning?
