Hot Take

A holistic, irreverent, no-bullshit look at the climate crisis and all the ways we’re talking—and not talking—about it. We take a feminist, race-forward lens to the biggest story of our time. Some people might call it intersectional, we call it honest. Co-hosted by Mary Annaïse Heglar and Amy Westervelt.

2018: The Wake-Up Call

2018 brought massive change to the ways we talk about climate. Global climate scientists put out the most alarming report yet on climate change impacts and projections, and media covered that report with the seriousness it deserved. The climate movement finally started moving past the hope narrative, and with megastorms ramping up and a town called Paradise burning down, climate change became impossible to ignore.

2019: It's Go Time

2019 brought an explosion of climate coverage in a variety of forms, and from the broadest coalition of voices yet. The movement grappled with gatekeepers and finally looked honestly at its racist past. Good thing too, because with increasing disasters, growing eco-fascism, and a total absence of global political leadership on climate, we need all hands on deck. It's go time.Transcript: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/171s0nlm8xvncu4/AAB9wsO7RJNFMnio5J3poKVva?dl=0Reading list:Kanaka Maoli: Don't Mistake our Aloha for Weakness: https://newsmaven.io/indiancountrytoday/news/kanaka-maoli-do-not-mistake-our-aloha-for-weakness-c0x8lkRr90miH95TkZcfZAPlastics: The New Coal in Appalachia? https://insideclimatenews.org/news/25022019/plastics-hub-appalachian-fracking-ethane-cracker-climate-change-health-ohio-riverCop Out: https://nplusonemag.com/online-only/online-only/cop-out/I'm the 13-year-old Police Threatened to Arrest at the Kirribilli House Protest.
