Karen Sokol and Chris Callahan on Climate Justice: The Interplay of Science, Law, and Policy
The Lawfare Podcast
Over the weekend, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP 27, went into overtime as nations came to an historic agreement to establish a loss and damage fund. This fund is meant to give resources to countries who have experienced the worst effects of climate change. Some like to think of it as climate reparations. There are a lot of factors that might have created the momentum for this historic agreement to go through after many years. An interesting one is that it's becoming more and more difficult for big emitters like the United States to deny their role in contributing to climate change, particularly as new scientific studies have been pivotal in creating a pretty unimpeachable basis for climate responsibility. But, just because science can verify certain realities does not mean that it's a straight path forward for climate justice. To get a sense of what factors are coming together to achieve climate justice, Lawfare associate editor Hyemin Han merges the legal and policy perspective with the science perspective in a conversation with Karen Sokol, a professor at the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law and a fellow at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, and Chris Callahan, a PhD candidate at Dartmouth College who co-produced a scientific study that informed negotiations on loss and damage at COP 27.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/lawfare.

We lead off this week discussing the divisiveness amongst peers in the midst of potential Union concessions at the Legacy carriers. We also exploit the goiter on Chris’ neck- since it is extremely distracting (10:00). Zatch shares his recent horror story with his AME (37:45), the resultant grounding, and the support he is receiving from his Union. We cap it off with an example of Chris’ epic trolling (1:08:00), and how you can lose friends if you’re not careful.

It's Time for Comprehensive Dementia Care: Podcast with Lee Jennings and Chris Callahan
Chris Callahan (of Indiana University) and Lee Jennings (University of Oklahoma) have some righteous anger. Why do we have comprehensive cancer care centers and not comprehensive dementia care centers? We have a body of evidence dating back 30 years to support people with dementia and their caregivers with Comprehensive Dementia Care. Lee Jennings added to this robust body of work with a study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society demonstrating that a comprehensive dementia care program based out of UCLA reduced ED visits, hospital length of stay, increased hospice enrollment, and delayed time to admission to long term care. As Chris Callahan notes in his accompanying editorial in JAGS, a fundamental problem with our healthcare system is that savings from Comprehensive Dementia Care accrues not to the dementia care program, but to the hospital and Medicare (ED visits, hospital length of stay) or Medicaid (long term care admission). Our fragmented healthcare system lacks the coordinated big picture financial incentives to make this happen for our patients. One more major point - Chris Callahan emphasizes in the podcast that we as clinicians need to stop saying, "there's nothing that we can do for dementia; nothing works." That's simply not true. While we lack Comprehensive Dementia Care programs in nearly every region of the US, we have tremendous community resources for people with dementia and their caregivers. The Alzheimer's Association is a great place to start. The song request was This Land is Your Land, classic Woodie Guthrie as Lee Jennings works at the University of Oklahoma. Chris Callahan rewrote the lyrics to address the topic, and if you listen to the very end of the podcast, you'll get this version: This land needs dementia care Comprehensive dementia care From California to Indiana From Oklahoma to the New York Island We need dementia care for our families As I sought clearly, the research to frame I saw clear data of the triple aim I saw the workforce, we need to train We need dementia care for our families -@AlexSmithMD
