In this episode of the Ways & Means podcast: how upgrading stoves for people in the developing world could bring about a double win: improving people’s lives while making a big contribution to fighting climate change.
We follow along with Duke Professor Subhrendu Pattanayak on a research trip to rural Kenya, and are invited into people’s homes to see how they cook, and what might make them change their methods.
This is the fourth in our series Climate Change Solutions, a look at surprising answers to the question of what we can do to help cool a rapidly heating planet.
