Listening Brief 1 – Rachel Rothschild – Lessons from acid rain  

Listening Brief is a series of podcasts compiled by Charles Worringham on topics of interest to followers of The Generator.  They are generally 45 minute pieces. Let me know if you would like precis style summaries.

Our very first guest, Rachel Rothschild, is working on her book RR2 A Poisonous Sky: Acid Rain and the Emergence of Environmental Science and Diplomacy, outlining the history of acid rain and how the world dealt with it from its emergence as a global problem in the sixties.

There are important lessons here for current diplomacy on greenhouse emissions in the lead-up to the Paris climate talks.

Rachel is an Assistant Professor at New York University where you can visit her profile page, or alternatively, her personal website.
