Those who can't accept the state of reality are doomed to dissatisfaction. Those who can accept the state of reality are doomed to things being as they are.
We're reading N.K. Jemisin's short story Cloud Dragon Skies, which I highly recommend you read carefully before the episode and then reread after the episode because we have a very interesting difference of experiences on how we read it that we discuss on the show, and we want to hear your experiences! We also discuss the ethics of geoengineering, in particular some less often cited non-consequentialist arguments. This episode and other stuff we've been doing has me really thinking about how it's even possible to find a balance between acceptance and progress.
