The Climate Conversation We’re Not Having

Is there a conversation around climate change and our survival – that we’re not having? That you’re not having? Could we invite that conversation and hold it live and online, face to face but perhaps around the globe? Bill Kauth and I were imagining a conversation around climate breakdown (as some are calling it) and the human future – the conversation  we’d really like to have.
