Welcome to the Reversing Climate Change podcast, created by the team at Nori. This podcast is hosted by Nori's Creative Editor, Ross Kenyon, and features the people, technologies, and organizations that are coming together to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reverse climate change. We started this show in late 2017 as a way to make the esoteric world of carbon removal more accessible while sharing solutions-oriented stories and learnings about climate change.

Nori is a carbon removal marketplace on a mission to reverse climate change. We're creating the financial infrastructure and incentives to pull carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere at a gigaton scale. Individuals, organizations, and companies can remove carbon at Nori.com. Currently, your carbon removal purchases fund regenerative farmers sequestering carbon in their soils and help us to scale up carbon removal and incorporate more methodologies!

Reversing Climate Change is on a season break until the new year, but we'll be releasing special bonus episodes throughout the fall. Plus, we've curated a few podcast playlists (linked below) that'll introduce you to our catalog in the meantime.

    Freedom, Mayhem, and the Uncertain Future of Revel’s Mopeds—w/ Kate Knibbs, Senior Writer at WIRED

    35:02

    If you don’t have access to public transportation or you’re looking for a climate-friendly alternative to Uber, then you may have considered renting one of Revel’s electric mopeds. But do micromobility companies like this actually make money? And how should micromobility fit into the larger ecosystem of getting from point A to point B? Kate Knibbs is a Senior Writer at WIRED and the author of ‘Freedom, Mayhem, and the Uncertain Future of Revel’s Mopeds.’ On this bonus episode of Reversing Climate Change, Kate joins Ross and guest host Radhika Moolgavkar, Head of Supply and Methodology at Nori, to discuss micromobility, describing how mopeds and e-bikes should be a complement to mass transit—not the dominant form of getting around. She offers insight on the potential profitability of a company like Revel, explaining how positioning itself as an electric vehicle company increases its chances of success and why safety issues are its greatest existential threat. Listen in to understand the role of subsidies in making micromobility ventures work and learn how Kate thinks about when to choose public transit, train travel, auto ownership, rideshare, or micromobility options.

    S2E72: NFTs, carbon removal, & the music biz—w/ Imogen Heap, Grammy-winning artist

    46:17

    Data in the music industry is incredibly fragmented. There is no one consistent place to go for information about a work. It’s hard to know where songs are being played or who was involved in creating a piece of music. And this means that a lot of artists don’t get royalties for their work. What if blockchain technology is the answer? Imogen Heap is the Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and record producer behind The Creative Passport, an identity management platform for music makers that runs on the blockchain. On this episode of Reversing Climate Change, Imogen joins Ross, Paul, and Evangeline to explain how the music industry’s challenges around crediting and payment inspired her interest in the blockchain space. She weighs in on why she launched a collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to raise funds for The Creative Passport and how she devoted a portion of the proceeds to Nori to offset the carbon emissions associated with minting those NFTs. Listen in for Imogen’s vision of a more diverse commercial music industry where artists are empowered to host their own data and share it with others on the blockchain.
