A Safe Harbor for the Climate

Here we explore an optimistic and realistic look at how we can and must restore the health of our atmosphere to levels that support all life on this planet. What are the possibilities of a safe harbor for humanity in the climate disruption crisis? Even though the transition to net-zero carbon emissions is well underway, it may not be enough to ensure a healthy and habitable environment for future generations because it does not address the carbon dioxide that already lingers in our atmosphere and which, if we do not do something, will be there for millennia. The present level of CO2 is already way above healthy levels for life on the planet as we know it. The good news comes from our guest today, Peter Fiekowsky, who has extensively researched and come up with specific, concrete steps we can take that can bring about a restoration of the kind of healthy climate humankind has flourished under for 10,000 years. He says that climate restoration is not only feasible but, once started, will pay for itself. This is not wishful thinking. It is on the ground proven processes that can and are being implemented. Here we discuss several of these adaptations already used by Mother Nature in restoring the atmosphere to livable levels by 2050.

Our guest on the November 22 show will be Peter Fiekowsky who is an MIT educated physicist and engineer, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and a social innovator. He has worked at NASA and the Fairchild/Schlumberger Artificial Intelligence Lab in Palo Alto, California and has taught at MIT
