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 #3: 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 #5: 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 #6: 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.

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 #10: 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.

Rank #16: Bonus: The Global Cooling Myth

Podcast cover
Read more
This week, we present a bonus episode of Warm Regards.

Forty years ago, on April 28th, 1975, Newsweek magazine published an article that created one of the most pervasive scientific myths in modern history.

It was a one-page story, buried in the middle of the magazine. But it became the most widely cited article in Newsweek’s history.
The piece, called “A Cooling World," raised concerns about a global cooling trend.

It was published on page 64. But it became front page news for climate skeptics, who point to it as proof that scientists were confused, or even deliberately misleading, about global warming.

In this episode, producer Stephen Lacey revisits the myth 40 years later.
