The Climate Pod

May 20, 2020

This week, we talk to Dr. Mustafa Santiago Ali about the concerns of the most vulnerable and front-line communities during COVID-19. He talks to us about the connection between air pollution and COVID-19 deaths and how communities face additional dangers as the worst weather 2020 is likely on its way.

Then, we talk about the newly-launched organization Climate Power 2020 with Executive Director Lori Lodes. She tells us how her group plans to improve climate messaging during the upcoming election.
