FROM THIS EPISODE

Ever heard of the French techno-philosopher Jean-Pierre Dupuy? If not, you might want to read up. Zócalo Public Square columnist Joe Matthews says he and California Gov. Brown are good pals, even attending the recent climate forum in Paris together. Dupuy practices something called "enlightened doomsaying," and he argues that humanity is fated to destroy itself because we have lost our sense of the sacred. He says the coming apocalypse can only be delayed, not avoided. For Matthews, Governor Brown's leadership style runs hand-in-hand with Dupuy's message of inevitable, but postponable doom.
