Listen: Author Paul Gilding Discusses "The Great Disruption" at WRI

How the climate crisis will transform the global economy.

After the event, I sat down with Paul and asked him what the environmental community can do to respond to the coming economic upheaval, the good news about human resilience in the face of crisis, and what he means by the "end of shopping."
