Fighting Climate Change Using Carbon Markets • Coronavirus in China • Davos Blues

January 23, 2020


Happy Lunar/Chinese New Year! Chun jie kuai le! 春节快乐!

Join American Bill Poorman and Dutchman Nikolaj Groeneweg, living in Asia, as they take you on a humorously serious and seriously humorous romp through the week's international news! In this week's episode:

  • As China prepares to celebrate its biggest annual holiday, the Lunar New Year, the country and the world face a growing coronavirus epidemic. Not very humorous 
  • Reflecting on Davos, the annual gathering of world's rich and powerful
  • An extended conversation with Bill Pazos, COO of Air Carbon Exchange in Singapore, on cap-and-trade solutions to climate change
  • And a twist on our usual happy news, wishing you gong xi gongxi! 

Reach out to us at or through social media. That includes our new Facebook page, where you can continue to the conversation with us!

Please remember that, if you like what you hear, sharing is caring. 🙏 Thanks for listening!
