A Response to Jordan Peterson Regarding Climate Change: Where is Everyone who “Doesn’t Understand”?

December 17, 2018

If you haven't listened to Peterson's breakdown of his thoughts regarding climate change in his podcast episode #59 with Bjorn Lomborg, I highly recommend it. It was interesting to listen to right after releasing my own episode on the topic, and wonderful to hear them discuss the issue from a perspective that's often overlooked, being – what can we do now regarding climate change, and what will it accomplish.

Whether it be a perspective, an idea, a thought, an axiom, a proposition, or an equation – there is no one who knows everything. We're all ignorant to something and to someone in some realm, and each of us is ignorant to varying degrees about almost everything. So when we come across a person or a group of people who are acting or believing certain things that we can't quite comprehend or we find abhorrent even, the solution has to be to still try. To reach out, to show our humanity and try to educate, encourage and enlighten in any way shape or form is a valuable endeavor. 

This episode sheds light on a recurring tactic used by intellectuals and Influencers when confronted with a viewpoint in stark contradiction to their own.

Climate Change: A New Conversation to End the Argument

Climate Change: A New Conversation to End the Argument

December 3, 2018

The conversation surrounding climate change has gone on for decades, and yet somehow, we still can't agree on the fundamental reality of what is taking place on our planet. Maybe we're so used to having conversations in terms of "Us vs. Them", or from the position of trying to prove someone else wrong, that we forgot what it means to converse at all. This episode is an attempt to go back to square one, and look at climate change from an angle that we all can see, but perhaps we forgot was available.
