While world leaders meet at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change, the Daily Maverick team speak to Professors Bob and Mary Scholes, two of the three authors of the new book Climate Change: Briefings from Southern Africa. Then they hear some of the innovative responses to the issue in the low-lying city of Lagos before finally discussing a rather extreme solution: human extinction.
