I ask Andrew about the horribly wet year in the UK, but so far science has no clear answers. Might take a year or two (by which time we'll be back in drought...)
Then you'll join me for a talk with a shrink. With all the bad news, we sure need one. Kathy McMahon is the "Peak Oil Shrink", a clinical psychologist who specializes in energy, climate, and the recovery that looks more like a Depression every day. Kathy tells us about Nicole Foss, "sucky collapse", and a surprising turn in her own life.
We also talk about student debt, the way society cripples it's youth. And whether in some European countries people may have to accept they will never have a job. Then what? I mention the UK Triple Dip "recession" (nobody can say the word "Depression" any more).
