Tzeporah Berman, author and International Program Director at Stand.Earth, hosts a conversation with renowned climate scientist Michael E. Mann on how we can save the planet.


Recycle. Fly less. Eat less meat. These are some of the ways that we've been told can slow climate change. But the inordinate emphasis on individual behavior is the result of a marketing campaign that has succeeded in placing the responsibility for fixing climate change squarely on the shoulders of individuals.


In his bestselling book, The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet, Mann argues that all is not lost. He draws the battle lines between the people and the polluters-fossil fuel companies, right-wing plutocrats, and petrostates. And he outlines a plan for forcing our governments and corporations to wake up and make real change.
