Episode: The Delusion of Climate Change Denial

Climate change is real. So is denial. What happens when we mix the worst of climate change with the worst of denial? President Trump and the head of the EPA.  Belief over science if how it is right now. And the narcissistic belief in belief is the huge challenge for the human brain.

However, if we also believe in heaven, then what happens here on earth is truly irrelevant. That’s the delusion and collusion of so many religions But what if there is not heaven. What if that idea is just plain incorrect? The challenge of the true believer is that the true believer doesn’t consider the possibility that he or she could be wrong. And in the case of climate change, even wronger than wrong.

This podcast is an exploration of this idea….
