The Climate Pod

May 27, 2020

This week, Dr. Michael Mann joined the show! The renowned climate scientist (newly elected to the National Academy of Sciences!) talks about his group's new study on the 2020 North Atlantic Hurricane Season, what it was like being in Australia during the bushfire disaster, and why humans are responsible for more than 100% of warming temperatures. 

Then, Evergreen Action Co-Founder Jamal Raad tells us what's needed in climate policy in 2020. He explains what it was like working for Gov. Jay Inslee on climate solutions and how his campaign for president inspired more political action. 

Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also discuss the terrible flooding in central Michigan last week.
