The Sydcast is all about intimate and informative conversations with fascinating people you may not know. Until now. Because everyone has a story.

Sydney Finkelstein is an award winning professor at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, and a best-selling author of Superbosses and 25 other books. He’s written for the Harvard Business Review, the BBC, Fortune, Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, and more academic journals than you’d care to know about. He spends his time asking questions, and sometimes, even answering them.
Do you know the truth about global warming? How bad is it really? Today, we talk to Erich Osterberg, an earth scientist and expert on climate change about the state of the earth’s environment, and how he came to care so much. If Erich Osterberg was just a Dartmouth professor and leading climate change scientist, someone who regularly testifies to Congress on this subject, it would be pretty interesting to talk to him, wouldn’t it? But he’s also a person, with a story and a passion that has taken him to the Arctic and the Antarctic to conduct research in some of the most inhospitable terrains on earth. Erich talks to us about the greatest threat our earth has ever seen, and some of the ways we, as everyday people, can combat this harrowing challenge. Most importantly though, as one of the most knowledgeable scientists in his field, Erich tells us why there’s still hope.
