Warm Regards is a podcast about life on a warming planet. The show is hosted by Jacquelyn Gill, a paleoecologist at the University of Maine, and Ramesh Laungani, a biologist at Doane University. Produced by Justin Schell, with transcription and social media support from Joe Stormer and Katherine Peinhardt. Our conversations are often honest and raw, as we talk with newsmakers, researchers, activists, policymakers, artists, and others as we push past the graphs and the headlines to get at the heart of what it means to live and work in a warming world. Our current season focuses on the often unexpected human stories behind climate data, from how it's collected to what we do with it. We're just as much a podcast about what it means to be human as we are about climate change--how we think, decide, love, grieve, change our behavior, and roll up our sleeves to tackle our toughest challenges.

Rank #1: The year in review

Podcast cover
Read more
This episode will be the last in Season 1 of Warm Regards.

We’ve had a tremendously positive response to the podcast so far from you, our listeners, and from the larger podcast community. We’re going to be back in action this spring.

This week, we’re going to run down the four biggest climate stories of the year, as voted on by that ultimate arbiter of truth—Twitter. The stories include:

Number 4: Coral bleaching.

Number 3: Paris Accord becomes international law.

Number 2: Earth’s warmest year.

Number 1: Arctic sea ice continues to its spectacular decline.

Joining Eric, Jacquelyn and Andy this week is Kim Kobb, a climate scientist at Georgia Tech who specializes in collecting and analyzing paleoclimate information from corals, caves, and the global water cycle.

Rank #2: Can we fix it? A serious look at where geoengineering stands

Podcast cover
Read more
It's been an exceptionally long and harsh winter in North America and it has Jacquelyn thinking about what is and isn't in our control. On the topic of climate, such thoughts can lead to the controversial topic of geoengineering.

Jacquelyn and Ramesh have a fascinating chat with Dr. Jane Flegal, Program Officer for Environment at The Bernard and Anne Spitzer Charitable Trust, about the current state of geoengineering.

Also, in unexpected science, Ramesh talks about new research involving cycles of CO2 levels in the ocean and coral reefs.

Here's Dr. Flegal's geoengineering reading list:

Rank #4: First thoughts on President-Elect Trump

Podcast cover
Read more
The climate stakes of last night's election are so huge as to be almost unfathomable. Hundreds of years, dozens of generations. We can't get around that fact. The future of humanity -- and all the species we share this planet with -- is much more murky now than it was 24 hours ago. That's not an exaggeration.

This week, Eric, Jacquelyn and Andy are answering three questions:

What changes on climate, now that Trump is President-Elect?

How are people in the climate community responding?

Where do we go from here, as a community, and as climate-focused individuals?

We’re going to tackle a bold and controversial statement this week: that 2016 is likely the single warmest year in the history of human civilization.

We’re joined by Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, to talk through it.

Is it fair to say this year is the warmest one we’ve ever experienced?

Rank #12: What caused the end of the Ice Age?

Podcast cover
Read more
What caused the end of the Ice Age? It’s a 20,000-year old mystery that’s being tackled by climate scientists across the county. Answering this question is not just about understanding the past -- it’s about developing a unified theory of the atmospheric system. And it can help refine climate models that project current and future rates of warming.
 
Aaron Putnam and his research team from the University of Maine are searching for clues as to what caused this rapid melting of glaciers and ice sheets. To find answers, Putnam's team traveled to a remote ice field in the Mongolian Altai, a vast range of mountains that touch Russia, Mongolia, China and Kazakstan.

This story is brought to us by Kevin Stark. He’s an environmental journalist who lives in Chicago. He embedded with Putnam’s team for the entire 6-week journey, a part his work as a Comer journalism fellow at Northwestern University.

One of the most fascinating climate change stories of the year comes from Ross Anderson at The Atlantic. In "Welcome to Pleistocene Park", Ross writes about Pleistocene Park, a reserve in Siberia that aims to stave off climate change by attempting to recreate the conditions of the Pleistocene, turning the reserve into a grassland steppe ecosystem by importing large herbivores. The article also explores the possibilities of bringing back the woolly mammoth, specifically for a place like Pleistocene park.

Rank #15: Climate politics in America's crazy presidential race

Podcast cover
Read more
If you’re listening to this from a post-apocalyptic Pokemon-dominated global-warming ravaged future –- welcome!

We’re getting to crunch time in the election, and a whole suite of new climate-related polls have been released in just the last few days. Is this finally the election in which climate change is going to play a big role?

When you look at America as a whole, climate change still ranks relatively near the bottom in terms of voters’ priorities. Last week, a Pew survey ranked the environment as 12th out of 14 major issues, just below trade policy. But if you burrow in to the large and growing section of America that’s deeply concerned about climate change, you’ll find there are a lot of single-issue voters that are very engaged.

We have a lot in store for today’s show: Pokemon is making people go outside for the first time; Bernie has endorsed Hillary; Trump is still Trump. Sheer craziness.

Rank #18: Science in a ‘post-fact’ world

Podcast cover
Read more
We were expecting to take a longer break while preparing ourselves for 2017. But it’s clear we need to respond to the whirlwind first week of Donald Trump’s presidency –- specifically what it means for science and climate change. We’ll also spend some time on the emerging resistance movement in favor of science.

In this week’s episode, we detail the different ways that the Trump Administration may be systematically undermining climate science. There are a lot of bad signs. But there’s still a lot we don’t know.

We are now living in a country in which our head of state is clearly lying to us about even mundane things -- about things that can’t possibly have happened the way he says they did. How are we supposed to carry on as normal? This is the theme of today’s conversation.

As normal, the episode features dialogue between Eric Holthaus, Jacquelyn Gill and Andy Revkin.

Rank #20: Rise of the eco-right

This week, we’re going to tackle what might be in store when it comes to climate after the election. Specifically, we’re going to examine the future of the Republican party – and sketch out a scenario that could lead to full-blown bipartisan climate policy in the near-term. Maybe.

We recorded this episode November 1, exactly a week before the election. At this point, the race continues to tighten.

Whether or not Trump becomes president, some factions of the Republican party are already gearing up to make sure future conservative presidential candidates aren’t so out of touch with their thinking on the world’s most important issue.

Our special guest this week is squarely at the center of what the emerging Eco-Right.

Alex Bozmoski is the director of strategy and operations for the Energy and Enterprise Initiative at George Mason University, also known as RepublicEn, where he’s helped lead an educational initiative to help motivate his fellow conservatives on climate change.

His journey from climate denier and troll to clean energy campaigner could serve as an example, in a single person, of the future of the Republican Party.

It's been an exceptionally long and harsh winter in North America and it has Jacquelyn thinking about what is and isn't in our control. On the topic of climate, such thoughts can lead to the controversial topic of geoengineering.

Jacquelyn and Ramesh have a fascinating chat with Dr. Jane Flegal, Program Officer for Environment at The Bernard and Anne Spitzer Charitable Trust, about the current state of geoengineering.

Also, in unexpected science, Ramesh talks about new research involving cycles of CO2 levels in the ocean and coral reefs.

Here's Dr. Flegal's geoengineering reading list:
