Elizabeth Kolbert: We have locked in centuries of climate change. Elizabeth Kolbert covers climate change for the New Yorker. She's the Pulitzer prize-winning author of The Sixth Extinction. And she recently wrote a paragraph I can't stop thinking about. "The problem with global warming—and the reason it continues to resist illustration, even as the streets flood and the forests die and the mussels rot on the shores—is that experience is an inadequate guide to what’s going on. The climate operates on a time delay. When carbon dioxide is added to the atmosphere, it takes decades—in a technical sense, millennia—for the earth to equilibrate. This summer’s fish kill was a product of warming that had become inevitable twenty or thirty years ago, and the warming that’s being locked in today won’t be fully felt until today’s toddlers reach middle age. In effect, we are living in the climate of the past, but already we’ve determined the climate’s future."Kolbert lives, to an unusual degree, in the planet's future. She travels to the places around the world where the climate of tomorrow is visible today. She has watched glaciers melting, and seen species dying. And she is able to convey both the science and the cost with a rare lucidity. Talking with Kolbert left me with an unnerving thought. We look back on past eras in human history and judge them morally failed. We think of the Spanish Inquisition or the Mongol hordes and believe ourselves civilized, rational, moral in a way our ancestors weren't. But if the science is right, and we do unto our descendants what the data says we are doing to them, we will be judged monsters. And it will be all the worse because we knew what we were doing and we knew how to stop, but we decided it was easier to disbelieve the science or ignore the consequences. Kolbert and I talk about the consequences, but also about what would be necessary to stabilize the climate and back off the mass extinction event that is currently underway. We discuss geoengineering, political will, the environmental cost of meat, and what individuals can and can't do. We talk about Trump's cabinet, about whether technological innovation will save us, and if pricing carbon is enough. We talk about whether hope remains a realistic emotion when it comes to our environmental future.Books:-Edward Abbe’s “Desert Solitaire”-Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring”-David G.

#32 Earning Your Stripes with Patrick Collison. On this episode of the Knowledge Project Podcast, I chat with Patrick Collison, co-founder and CEO of the leading online payment processing company, Stripe. If you’ve purchased anything online recently, there’s a good chance that Stripe facilitated the transaction. What is now an organization with over a thousand employees and handling tens of billions of dollars of online purchases every year, began as a small side experiment while Patrick and his brother John were going to college. During our conversation, Patrick shares the details of their unlikely journey and some of the hard-earned wisdom he picked up along the way. I hope you have something handy to write with because the nuggets per minute in this episode are off the charts. Patrick was so open and generous with his responses that I’m really excited for you to hear what he has to say. Here are just a few of the things we cover: The biggest (and most valuable) mistakes Patrick made in the early days of Stripe and how they helped him get better The characteristics that Patrick looks for in a new hire to fit and contribute to the Stripe company culture What compelled he and his brother to move forward with the early concept of Stripe, even though on paper it was doomed to fail from the start The gaps Patrick saw in the market that dozens of other processing companies were missing — and how he capitalized on them The lessons Patrick learned from scaling Stripe from two employees (he and his brother) to nearly 1,000 today How he evaluates the upsides and potential dangers of speculative positions within the company How his Irish upbringing influenced his ability to argue and disagree without taking offense (and how we can all be a little more “Irish”) The power of finding the right peer group in your social and professional circles and how impactful and influential it can be in determining where you end up. The 4 ways Patrick has modified his decision making process over the last 5 years and how it’s helped him develop as a person and as a business leader (this part alone is worth the listen) Patrick’s unique approach to books and how he chooses what he’s going to spend his time reading ...life in Silicon Valley, Baumol’s cost disease, and so, so much more. Patrick truly is one of the most warm, humble and down to earth people I’ve had the pleasure to speak with and I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation together. I hope you will too! *** For comprehensive show notes on this episode, including a full edited transcript, go to https://www.fs.blog/podcast/ My free weekly Brain Food digest helps you upgrade your thinking.

Airbnb's Brian Chesky in Handcrafted. If you want your company to truly scale, you first have to do things that don't scale. Handcraft the core experience. Get your hands dirty. Serve your customers one-by-one. And don't stop until you know exactly what they want. That's what Brian Chesky did. As CEO of Airbnb, Brian’s early work was more akin to a traveling salesman. He takes us back to his lean years – when he went door-to-door, meeting Airbnb hosts in person – and shares the imaginative route to crafting what he calls an "11-star experience.”

Rank #1: Auburn Football All-Access Podcast, Episode 193, May 30, 2019.

Join show cohosts Coach John Ray and Doug Dean as they fondly remember the life and brilliant impact of Rod Bramblett, the “voice of the Auburn Tigers” since 2003, and for 10 years prior to that calling Auburn baseball.
Rank #2: Auburn Football All-Access Podcast, Episode 192, April 17, 2019. Join Coach John Ray and Doug Dean with an in-depth discussion of the apparent strengths and weaknesses for Gus Malzahn’s 2019 Auburn football team. While the focus among fans is naturally the competition at QB, there appears to be an embarrassment of riches at a few other positions.
Rank #1: Joey Gatewood or Bo Nix: Who is Auburn's quarterback?. Gus Malzahn will not say it, but his quarterback battle is down to two players: redshirt freshman Joey Gatewood and true freshman Bo Nix. Three Auburn quarterbacks had fantastic performances at the A-Day scrimmage Saturday, but our sources have long told us — and they repeated again — the quarterback battle is down to two men. Keith Niebuhr, Jason Caldwell and Brandon Marcello break down the performances of Nix and Gatewood, their improvement over the years since high school, and why they expect both quarterbacks to possibly play in the season opener Aug. 31 against Oregon. Yes, we're more than four months away, but the picture already appears to be clearing up. The guys also break down the resurgence of the Auburn offense, why it has returned to form under Malzahn's guidance and whether the impact performances by Seth Williams and Matthew Hill will carry over into the fall for the receivers. Also, what are the pieces most concerning to the guys? Is there a hole to fix on defense? Which two players surprised us the most? Our answers vary, and for good reason.Listen to the newest episode of the Auburn Undercover podcast as we zero in on the completion of spring practices and give you a full breakdown of what occurred behind closed doors during the 15 days of drills, including the only open scrimmage of the spring, from our team of insiders.Make sure to rate the Auburn Undercover podcast while you're here, and check out our introductory offer with 30% off an annual subscription to Auburn247: https://247sports.com/college/auburn/Article/Introducing-30-off-an-annual-subscription-to-Auburn247-131050703/Full coverage: https://auburn.247sports.comTwitter: https://www.twitter.com/auburn247Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/auburn247sportsFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/AuburnUndercoverLearn more about your ad choices.

Rank #2: It's Gus Malzahn's Show. Auburn has a new offensive coordinator, but let's not bury the lede. Gus Malzahn will, finally, call plays without interference starting with the Music City Bowl and continuing through at least the 2019 season. After several seasons of an offensive coordinator (Rhett Lashlee and then Chip Lindsey) calling the plays, and Malzahn later meddling with those play calls during games, the Auburn offense will again be all Malzahn. Simply put, it's one clear voice on the headsets instead of two. Why was that the case to begin with? We discuss that at length this week. "It's Gus Malzahn's Show" on the Auburn Undercover Roundtable this week as the guys discuss what this means for the future of the Auburn football program and whether we'll see any differences in the Music City Bowl against Purdue. Also, who is Kenny Dillingham, the new quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator? Well, we know who he isn't: the Tigers' play caller. What did we make of that letter to Auburn fans penned by athletics director Allen Greene? Was he targeting the media with his comments on "rumors and speculation" affecting the "Auburn family" in a negative fashion? Was he pointing to the fans? Why make those comments? We discuss. We also look at the huge recruiting weekend before the early signing period, what to expect in the near future and what areas Auburn is still trying to shore up before Dec. 19 hits the recruiting calendar. Oh, and how about the hot start by Bruce Pearl and his pride of Tigers? The guys discuss Auburn's big three-game swing coming up and the trip to Birmingham to face UAB this week. Plus, what does the addition of Danjel Purifoy mean for the Tigers? We also get a few updates on the behind-the-scenes action of the coaching carousel across the country and the latest talk in the industry from publisher and industry insider Ronnie Sanders. The Auburn Undercover Roundtable is hosted by Auburn Undercover editor Brandon Marcello, along with guests Keith Niebuhr (recruiting analyst), Phillip Marshall (the dean of Auburn writers) and Sanders.

Rank #1: The 2019 Bold Predictions Game. As we approach a new season of college football, we, as esteemed members of the national media, have an important job before us: to embrace bold, possibly stupid, predictions about what is yet to come and spread them into the world.

Rank #2: Shutdown Fullcast 4.24.0. WE BACK. The summer preview quite literally rolls on, at least in Jason's case, since he recorded his portion in the car this week in transit to SEC Media Days. Does Jason, recording in his car on a phone over the ineptly paved and uneven highways of Alabama, still sound better than recording over Indiana internet? Yes, yes it does. You're better than Indiana at something, Alabama! STICK THAT CHEST OUT AND ROLL TIDE. This one is...actually good? Actually GREAT. The teams this week are: --MICHIGAN STATE. A team that somehow feels like they'll be fine by scoring fewer points, playing uglier football, and losing a quarterback whose personality was considered cancerous even by NFL quarterback standards. Then again: when has an experienced backup upperclassman being considered a given at QB ever gone wrong, we ask, when, when in the entire history of say, Florida football has that ever gone wro-- --NC State! They're definitely a football team? They have a pretty good defense? They'll play sort of ineffective offense, but do it quickly? They're in the ACC, and not named Florida State or Clemson, so [bucket of shrug emojis]? --GEORGIA. A preview where we definitely do not say that Kirby Smart is Will Muschamp part 2, and where Jason yells out "ALL DAWGS MATTER" after suggesting you can get an undergraduate degree in conservative talk radio at the University of Georgia. Remember when Grayson Lambert went 24 for 25 against South Carolina, and was going to win the Heisman, and then five months later Mark Richt was coaching Miami? We do. --Louisville! Summary: Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson --TCU. Where when you play Pokemon Go, you find Gary Patterson and you find a Squirtle. We all agree that they're going to go 11-1, which is nothing but doom for TCU.
