The two discuss how Sarah stumbled upon Mustique's scandalous history, the drama that unfolded when she scheduled a trip to the island in March 2020 (as well as which famous writer offered her encouraging advice afterward), and what she included in the story to pay homage to her Puerto Rican and Caribbean heritage.Purchase on Amazon or Bookshop.Amazon: https://amzn.to/3wpRwHOBookshop: https://bit.ly/3l2Tdp5Subscribe to Zibby's weekly newsletter here.Purchase Moms Don't Have Time to Read Books merch here.

Welcome to BookShook! This podcast is all about the first half of May's book, The Animals in that Country by Laura Jean McKay published in 2020 (up to page 140 “I need a rinse under the tap and a lie-down” if you're reading alongside).  The idea of the podcast is that we'll split a book into two equal halves — a book that I and perhaps you have never read. In the first podcast, published on the second Friday of the month, we'll discuss the first half. And then in the second podcast (published on the last Friday of the month - 27th May), we'll look at the second half of the book (in this case from page 140). We'll see together how the novel concludes and decide whether it's a book we'd recommend to a friend - or not. Of course, you don't have to read the book, you can listen to it, or just follow along without doing either since I'll be summarising what happens (but be aware! - there will be spoilers). You can leave a comment or start a conversation at the BookShook YouTube channel (link below) or send an email to bookshook@yahoo.com. The book we'll be reading for June is Howard's End by E.M. Forster (382pp) (so get that ready if you're going to read alongside). Thanks for listening to BookShook! RogerContent Warning: There are adult themes in the novel (and some swearing). I have removed any swear words from dialogue.

#24 The IPCC Big Edit: finance, net zero, and the human factor

This is a special edition of the podcast, the Big IPCC edit.IPCC reports are notoriously hard to read - they are long and very technical. This means that few people actually read them.But they matter to all of us - the insights from these reports affect the way we vote, invest, consume and just generally how we live our lives.To make this bumper episode, I talked to three different authors from three chapters in the latest Working Group 3 report on mitigation solutions.Demand-side solutions, a fast growing area of knowledge, the new, good news chapter of the entire reportInvestment and finance - volume of literature on this tripled between previous 2014 assessment and this oneLong-term emissions pathways - the heart of net zeroIn the second segment, I talk to Joyashree Roy, Coordinating Lead Author for the new chapter on demand, services and social aspects of mitigation. This is a big deal, as previous reports focused mostly on supply-side solutions like renewable energies. But this report shows with high confidence that demand-side strategies can reduce 40-70% of emissions across all sectors.But first, I talk to Christa Clapp and Glen Peters from the CICERO Centre for International Climate Research in Norway.Our conversation is an important primer for anyone who wants to get their head around net zero. Among the highlights: why the “three more years to reduce emissions” thing is wrong. Why peak emissions are an important signal for the oil and gas sector, and why does the report have an entire chapter on finance and investment, yet the IPCC doesn’t target financial decision makers with its report?We also talk about #climatetwitter - how is it changing and what does that mean for the IPCC and its reports?What we talked about:Part One: Christa Clapp and Glen Peters2.35 The finance chapter is 3 times bigger than in the previous assessment. A lot is happening, but we still don’t know the impact of that activity6.31 Why “three more years to reduce the emissions curve” is an error, one that sends the wrong signal about having more time10.02 What is “peak emissions” and why does it matter? In fact, what matters most is the reduction after the peak. (Glen)11:59 The language around peak emissions matters to the oil and gas sector because it affects decisions around when to reduce production. Most oil and gas majors in their scenarios have emissions peaking between 2030 and 2040.15.44 Emissions were back at 2019 levels in 2021. So we’re essentially at a new peak emisssions. 18.20 War in Ukraine is driving new interest in nuclear, and we’re starting to see nuclear energy deals being labelled as green.22.08 Everyone agrees climate specialists from different areas such as finance and carbon cycle specialists should communicate and collaborate more, but there are many barriers.27.08 Glen says that an Integrated Assessment Model is like a jack of all trades but a master of none. 28.22 The finance sector is a whole new consumer group for climate scenarios, and sometimes this means they use the scenarios in a way they weren’t intended. We should be clearer about what the models are doing and not doing, and provide extra information.29.21 The IPCC doesn’t target financial decision makers as an audience with their reports. 30.18 One thing the scientific literature shows is that all the activity in the finance sector is focused on financial regulation around climate risk transparency, which builds capacity within institutions but does not, for the moment, drive emissions reductions. 34.33. Glen talks about climate twitter and how it’s changed in recent years.Part Two: Joyashree Roy42:02 Literature on demand solutions has proliferated since the Fifth Assessment, especially from the social sciences.44.38 Lifestyle and behaviour changes can reduce energy demand and our carbon footprint without reducing our wellbeing49:07 Demand-side strategies can reduce 40-70% of emissions across all sectors.53:53 A big focus of the literature is human desire for health and wellbeing over accumulation of material goods. In order to drive more sustainable consumption patterns, we need social movements, role models to support social acceptability of these new patterns of consumption.57:06 Policies can change behaviour, for example putting a tax on status consumption items.1:05 We need to set wellbeing as our goal and not income and material accumulation.Thanks for listening!☕☕☕ If you enjoyed this ad-free podcast and feel that you’ve learned something, you can say thank you by buying me a coffee.

Literature professor, Dr. Karen Swallow Prior joins me to talk about novels, story, and Christian film. Given that Christian films tend to be very message driven, I was interested in learning at the feet of Dr. Prior as she walked her readers through these great novels. How did these time-tested storytellers communicate moral and spiritual virtues? I believe filmmakers should be readers of good fiction, especially given that we don't have a very strong storytelling tradition in fiction or Christian films. Christians, historically, are a people of propositions, not stories. Good authors of fiction have a great deal to teach Christian filmmakers.

What do wild bears and libertarians have in common? Turns out, more than you might think. In 2004 a group of libertarians founded the Free Town Project, a movement to take over a town and turn it into a libertarian utopia. After some research, the Free Towners decided that Grafton, New Hampshire, a town with a history of resistance to taxation that goes back to the American Revolution, seemed like the perfect place for their experiment. Enter investigative reporter Matt Hongoltz-Hetling. Matt was in Grafton working on an unrelated story when he discovered, quite by chance, that the bears in the area were acting very strangely. He dug deeper and discovered surprising reasons for their behavior connected to the Free Town movement, a journey he details in his book, A Libertarian Walks Into a Bear: The Utopian Plot to Liberate an American Town (And Some Bears). Now, Julie and Eve talk to Matt about what happens when a group of outsiders undertakes “the boldest social experiment in modern American history,” why Grafton's bears were eating its cats and attacking its people, and whether an insidious parasite may be contributing to the mayhem. Matthew Hongoltz-Hetling is a freelance journalist specializing in narrative features and investigative reporting, and the author of A Libertarian Walks Into a Bear: The Utopian Plot to Liberate an American Town (And Some Bears). He has been named a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, won a George Polk Award, and been voted Journalist of the Year by the Maine Press association, among numerous other honors.

In Can You See the Wind?, a working-class family in the Bronx struggles to make a better world, even as the world spins into chaos. Columbia professor (and friend of the podcast) Farah Jasmine Griffin says "Beverly Gologorsky brings a clarity of vision and purpose to this extraordinary novel—a story about the complexities and love that both bring families, lovers and comrades together and tears them apart. Can You See the Wind? renders the urgency of political movements as well as moments of individual contemplation. That she does so in breathtaking prose is a testament to her brilliance and artistry."

Animals, Episode #2 of 4. Toads, dogs, cats, ferrets, rats, and occasionally even butterflies were depicted in the 16th and 17th centuries as “witch's familiars” throughout Europe. A servant of the witches, whose purpose was to help them stir up trouble and cause harm in their enemies, familiars were particularly important in English witch lore. Some were conjured by witches, some sent by the Devil to tempt a woman into maleficence, some were supposed to be the Devil himself in the form of a common black dog. Whatever their origin and intent, familiars were not just background characters in English witch trials. They were presented as evidence and used to sentence hundreds, probably thousands, of people to death for witchcraft - in England. Not so in France or Denmark or Italy. It was only in England that the familiar's significance was codified in law. Why, you ask? Great question. Let's find out.
