The World is Not Ending | Bjørn Lomborg | EP 315

Published by Jordan B Peterson Podcast on YouTube

Bjorn Lomborg joins Jordan Peterson on his podcast to explore the idea of how we do good in the world most effectively. In order to get to a point where we can discuss investing in better education and nutrition, we also need to confront the sense of impending doom that has swept the western world and specifically today's young people.
