I don’t think Eli will be answering questions Friday now. Looks like he will do it over the weekend…..I’ll find out.

I’ll start up a thread on this general topic ... (How soon people listen to the podcast).

If I had to hazard a guess I’d expect that by mid next week we’d get most of them.

I’ll no doubt be listening to this one over weekend, as I’m very interested in this topic.

Well, it’s on the air. . .  ‘er cyberspace grin
I need to admit, a part of me had the pencil sharpened ready to “call” this guy with his geoengineering stuff.

But then, Mooney’s thoughtful introduction, that covered a lot of bases, softened me up. 
The interview that followed turned out to be interesting.  Kintisch is thoughtful, smart and quite informative. 

I felt Mooney did an excellent job. 
This is a PoI interview I look forward to listening to another couple times, along with hearing what the general opinion is.

I listened to the podcast this afternoon. I was also prepared to jump on Kintisch for ignoring the underlying problem while proposing a “feel-good” solution. I’ll have to listen to the podcast again and take notes to get the quotes right, but fairly early in he said geoengineering to remove greenhouse gases would address the cause of the problem. I slapped my head at this point and said to myself “He doesn’t get it. Emissions are not the cause.” Then later on Kintisch said we should never consider geoengineering unless we reduce our emissions first.

Yes! He gets it.

Very fine podcast. Balanced and informative. Thanks Chris.

CC and Darron, you should really post these responses in the thread about the podcast HERE. This thread is supposed to be mainly for questions for the guest ...

(I’m wondering if in future we should just lock these threads once the interview has taken place ...)

OK, I’ve discussed the matter with Chris. Please direct your questions, responses, feelings, inquiries, etc. regarding this podcast to the “official” podcast thread by clicking this link.

I’m locking this thread.
