Last Updated May 4, 2021 at 3:13 pm EDT

In today’s Big Story podcast, a year ago we never would have imagined that humanity could collectively change its work habits so quickly, or that governments could unveil ambitious national programs so quickly. We all saw a silver lining last Spring when the global shutdown brought with it clearer waters and skies and a record drop in emissions.

If we’re smart enough to harness what we’ve learned over the past 15 months, it could go a long way in the fight to keep our planet livable. If we don’t … we could end up right back where we started. Are we smart enough to apply pandemic lessons to the climate crisis?
