How do we even begin to decarbonize economies when almost everything we’ve built since the 1800s was designed around fossil fuels? In this segment from Getting Warmer, Kal Penn explains how we can renovate the world, from electrical grids to air travel and even our homes.
Getting Warmer is Bloomberg’s exclusive new show about climate, clean energy and business, anchored by actor and former White House aide Kal Penn.
Accompany him on his journey as he takes an up-close look at bold climate solutions and discovers new facets of the global transition to clean energy.
In a hosted studio segment, Penn sifts through the overwhelming news about our climate and breaks down the facts and trends to understand with a dose of humor and optimism. Why are the recycling symbols on your plastic cups misleading? How does the carbon credit market work and does it actually help? And what is the future of water in a drought-ridden world?
On the road, Penn meets the innovators, researchers, communities and businesses pivoting to new energy sources and spearheading low-carbon technologies. In documentary segments, Penn speaks to the self-declared “crypto cowboys” of Texas who claim Bitcoin mining can help stabilize the state’s troubled electrical grid, and travels to Nevada to visit the company attempting to build America’s first closed-loop supply chain for electric vehicles. In New York, Penn explores the urban designs proposed to save the city from the next Superstorm Sandy and goes inside New York’s Empire State building to investigate the challenges of decarbonizing our cities and landmarks.
The show builds on, and includes contributions from, Bloomberg Green’s award-winning team of climate journalists as well as London-based climate storytellers Jack Harries and Alice Aedy. With a focus on the most pressing questions for young viewers, Jack and Alice unpack one big idea each episode. From recycled wastewater to regenerative agriculture and the challenges of a just transition for workers in the energy sector, they’ll break down how countries across the world are finding intriguing solutions to our climate crisis, and outline the challenges ahead.

You can also watch on Bloomberg TV (BTV) at 10p ET.

Fossil fuel is stored sunlight energy. We already green 😊
Reduce the birth rate and consumption rate.
the technoligie already exist for the last 70 years 🤣🤣
Your videos are always so well-researched, I appreciate the effort you put into them! 🧐
Why is someone who has been to GITMO for terrorism lecturing us about carbon…?
Bloomberg would rather exploit more cheap labor for the EV push… the same EV push that is going to cause more oil production and usage… dumb…
WE DON’T. We dont “decarbonize”. That question is based on an ignorant perverted view of reality. Period.
I’m trying to increase my carbon footprint.
Stop, just stop
Here come a hundred idiots to make the same joke a hundred more times despite nobody ever laughing
Zero plastics in clothing, food and consumer goods! Then reduce electricity usage, transportation specifically air travel. Most importantly buy local to stop international shipping. Even then humans produce less carbon then the Earth! Climate is changed globally by our star the Sun. Local environments experience pollution
You’re made of carbon
Too many self-interruptions in this one.
…All At Once?
Buy Bitcoin it controls carbon.
More greenwashing PR for Bloomberg. “Green” capitalism isn’t enough to reverse climate change. We need clean energy solutions AND eventually do away with our current consumer-based, ever growing capitalist system.
Too short, not say many key things… kind of useless
Humans are made out of carbon and exhale carbon. Pretty soon we’ll be told to breathe less 😂
Ashes to ashes dust to dust, carbon is essential for a plants health, so decarbonate yourself.
