What Biden Is Bringing to the Climate Fight with Leah Stokes, Katharine Wilkinson and Julian Brave NoiseCat

Crosscut Talks

He talked a big game during the presidential campaign. Our guests look at what the president is doing in his first year to back that up. Democratic control of the federal government was far from certain heading into the 2020 general election. But following the election of Joe Biden to the presidency and Georgia's two Senate seats going blue, an unexpected opportunity emerged.  One of the biggest questions facing the party now in power is what it would do with this moment when it came to the environment.  Climate policy has never been a given when it comes to actual legislation at the federal level. But President Biden and many of his fellow Democrats have put climate front and center in this first year of his administration. For this episode of the Crosscut Talks podcast, Dr. Leah Stokes, Dr. Katharine Wilkinson and Julian Brave Noisecat discuss the moves the president has made to shore up his administration's environmental acumen, the scope of his vision and whether it will amount to anything.  --- Credits Host: Mark Baumgarten Event producers: Jake Newman, Andrea O'Meara Engineers: Seth Halleran, Resti Bagcal, Viktoria Ralph

Intersectionality in Climate Change with Dr. Katharine Wilkinson

Girl and The Gov, The Podcast

OH HEYY, it’s episode two of our climate-focused month and we could not be more excited about this episode. No, like seriously, we are screaming. We had the pleasure of interviewing, Dr. Katharine Wilkinson who wears so many hats in the climate realm that we’d have to build a closet just to store them all. To give you a glimpse at her role, she is an expert and strategist on how humans can address climate change. She is a New York Times best-selling author (Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming), the co-founder of the All We Can Save Project with Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, and has been named one of 15 “women who will save the world” by Time Magazine. As you can imagine, our conversation touches on a little bit this, and a lotta bit of climate change, with specific attention given to the intersectionality of this massive issue. P.S.

90. Ferocious Love with Katharine Wilkinson

Outrage + Optimism

With a deep freeze in Texas leaving a wake of devastation, a UN Security Council Meeting weakly addressing climate change as the planet’s “gravest threat”, and massive investment for offshore wind in Denmark to produce green ammonia, there’s no shortage of things to be outraged by or optimistic about this week! We are at a new political moment where we are seeing the ambition for a cleaner world, and we are seeing the economics weigh more and more towards phasing out fossil fuels. We’re even seeing the political winds shift toward championing racial, social, and economic justice! And at the heart of the climate movement that is deeply committed to making all of this possible is a ferocious love for our planet, nurtured and activated by a ‘feminist climate renaissance’ as our guest, Katharine Wilkinson, phrases it. This week we talk to Katharine Wilkinson, author, teacher and former Editor-in-Chief at Project Drawdown, about her latest book co-edited with Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, ‘All We Can Save’, an anthology of women’s voices in the climate movement, and what is giving her a “fire in the belly and the heart” in tackling the climate crisis. Our interview with Katharine gets into why she believes the climate crisis is ultimately a leadership crisis, and explores the idea of transformative leadership and emerging voices at the core of the climate movement which she describes as, “characteristically feminine, but also more committedly feminist in its commitment to equality and justice.” And stick around later in the show for a musical performance from Desirée Dawson! — Thank you to our guest this week, Katharine Wilkinson.
