Rank #1: There is No Red and Blue America, Because There's Really Six Americas

Podcast cover

We’ve all heard about red and blue states making up our politically polarized nation. But when it comes to climate change, there are more than just two Americas. In fact, Jennifer Marlon from the Yale Program on Climate Change (YPCCC) Communication says there’s actually six Americas.

Rank #2: How do we talk about climate change?

Podcast cover
Read more
For those of us who think about climate change often -- like unhealthily often -- there's sometimes a sense that you're missing the story. Climate change is quite possibly the biggest story of all time. But it can feel remote, abstract, and lost in a sea of statistics.

There's no way to do this story justice in just a few hundred words on a blog post. That's why we made Warm Regards.

In this inaugural episode of Warm Regards, we'll tackle what it means to talk about climate change at this unique moment in human history.

Warm Regards is hosted by Slate Magazine's Eric Holthaus, a self-professed weather and climate geek who Rolling Stone once called "the rebel nerd of meteorology."

Co-hosting is Andy Revkin, veteran environment reporter for the New York Times who has covered climate change from all angles for 30 years, and Jacquelyn Gill, a paleoecologist at the University of Maine who is an actual, real-life climate scientist who flawlessly navigates social media.

Together, they're opening a window into the world of people devoted to finding out what matters most about climate change.

Rank #4: Diversity and climate with Kim Cobb

Podcast cover
Read more
Host Andy Revkin chats with Georgia Tech's Kim Cobb about the importance of paleoclimate and what records of the earth and environment’s previous eons can tell us about where we are, where we’re headed and what can be done. Paleoclimate finally has a seat at the table in climate matters, which leads to a related discussion on the importance of diversity in the climate community.

Rank #5: 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 #6: Climate anxiety in the Trump era

Podcast cover
Read more
It’s been a long week and a half. We’re still processing everything that’s happening, just like all of you. We might never understand it, but it’s clear the consequences for the climate are immediate and have already begun.

This week’s episode will be a little bit different. We’ve recorded three separate interviews with leaders on the environment, and asked them what they’re doing in response to the election results. We’ve also asked them what we can do.

Our first interview is with Jeff Hayward, who is vice president of landscapes and livelihoods for the Rainforest Alliance. He spoke to us from Marrakech, Morocco where he is attending COP 22.

Our second interview is with Katherine Crocker, an evolutionary ecologist at the University of Michigan and a member of the Kaw Nation. Days after the election, she travelled to support the water protectors of the Standing Rock Sioux in North Dakota.

Read about her journey here: http://katherinecrocker.com/2016/11/09/going-to-north-dakota-stem-activism-part-ii-posted-before-part-i/

Our final interview is with Renee Lertzman, who works to understand the psychology of how we deal with environmental issues. Her words are especially useful in this time of shared anxiety and concern and uncertainty.

Is 2016 the warmest year in all of history?

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: 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?

Rank #13: Is it time to freak out about the Arctic?

Podcast cover
Read more
Snow and ice are disappearing from the Arctic region at unprecedented rates, leaving behind open water that’s much less reflective to incoming sunlight than ice. That, among other factors, is causing the northern polar region of our planet to warm at a faster rate than the rest of the northern hemisphere—a phenomenon called Arctic Amplification. And over the past several months, it’s become increasingly obvious that big changes are happening now. Right now, not 5 or 10 or 20 years from now, Now.

In this week’s episode, we’ll talk about all those changes -– and what they say about what we do and don’t know about the melting Arctic.

Oh, and we’ll also talk about how Game of Thrones relates to climate change.
