Richard Muller - Climate Change & the Physics of Time

Professor Muller has had an incredibly illustrious career, and to cover all of his accomplishments in a single podcast would be impractical. To name just one, he led the project which eventually led to the Nobel Prize winning discovery of dark energy. 

This podcast is focused on his current and ongoing ventures, as well as some of his yet to be confirmed theories, and some general life lessons.

If you are interested in learning more, you should follow Professor Muller on Quora, or grab a copy of his latest book, Now: the Physics of Time, now available on paperback as well as Kindle.

In this episode of the podcast, I spoke with professor emeritus Richard Muller about a wide-ranging set of topics, including:

  • His work with Berkeley Earth, and how developing countries can work to lessen their impact on the environment and the atmosphere,
  • The harm of Al Gore's 'documentary', An Inconvenient Truth, has done to the credibility of the scientific community.
  • What a president ought to know about North Korean nukes,
  • Why time continues to flow, as outline in his newest book Now: the Physics of Time
  • How his current startup, Deep Isolation Inc. is working on a new method for nuclear waste storage,
  • His surprising analysis of current POTUS Trump's energy plan in comparison to that of previous POTUS Obama,
  • and much, much more.
