Episode 2: Authoritarian Governments and Climate Change

For our second episode, we consider whether democracy or autocracy can provide the action that the global community needs, to combat climate change. We debate whether authoritarian or democratic governments are more effective at handling crises like the pandemic or the Climate emergency.

Seeking consensus can be a long process which can delay action. We discuss with our panel if reaching consensus is a process that must be done regardless of the type of government; and if in their opinion consensus helps or hinders action on climate change.

We also address the issue of innovation on helping us tackle climate change and if this factor gives democracies an edge on fighting climate change.
