How Our Choices Broke The Planet: "The Story Of More"


New and improved!  Bigger and better!  We've been getting advertising messages all our lives about how we could have the good life. 

Just ONE more product could make you happier, they implied.  Which would be difficult to prove in the best of circumstances; now multiply by seven billion, and can any human get there? 

Hope Jahren, award-winning scientist and best-selling author, raises the question in her book The Story of More: How We Got to Climate Change and Where to Go from Here.  The book follows the trail of our individual activities and how they add up to a massive impact on the climate. 

Yet the author says it is a story of hope, too.  

She visits The Exchange to share her vision.
