Continuing the discussion from You Are Not So Smart podcast 020: The Future - James Burke and Matt Novak:
I have never had an urge to download the podcast...but James Burke is an automatic win, for me.
Recently rewatching "The Day the Universe Changed", it was eerily prescient about some things, especially it's worries at the dawn of the Information Age. "After the Warming" is off the mark on a lot of points, but given it was made in 1989, it's biggest mistake is being optimistic about people dealing with climate change. Some of the mistakes are based on science from the time, while others are much closer to the mark than we might have imagined: for every part he gets wrong (a world org to manage carbon emissions, getting rid of cattle) he gets another right (flooding of New Orleans, Gulf Wars, politicians styming action on climate change)
