Quick Climate Links: Climate-friendly; 'inadequate'; UN climate summit;  Podcast Brunch Club

First, we hear a short piece from an episode on the Podcast Brunch Club - it’s a free event, it’s virtual, it’s like a book club, but it’s about podcasts, in this case, geo-engineering, simply listen to them and talk about what you heard with other listeners.

Our first of two stories from The New York Times is also about 
geo-engineering: “What’s the Least Bad Way to Cool the Planet?”;
