Looking at climate change through the eyes of a gadfly
Show Notes

University of Melbourne anthropologist, Hans Baer, describes himself as a 'gadfly'. And while that may be true - a gadfly is someone who annoys or criticizes others in order to provoke them into action - Hans cares about the specific and broader welfare of humanity and although he may be annoying, he is absolutely unafraid to call out someone, or something, that he sees is not in the best interests of all people, whatever their role or social position in life.
