In 2007, Roger Sedjo shared the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on climate change. He joins host Krys Boyd to talk about thinking about the problem on parallel tracks: One focused on slowing global warming and another planning for its inevitability. His new book is called “Surviving Global Warming: Why Eliminating Greenhouse Gases Isn’t Enough” (Prometheus Books).
