I have listened to this podcast for at least 3 years. More and more, it features talks that are related to climate change, sometimes directly and sometimes not. While I am totally convinced that man has a definite part in what is happening to our climate, his gloom and doom finally got to me. This podcast was deleted from my feed and I will no longer be listening to it.
