The Climate Pod

Oct 14, 2020

This week, Dr. Friederike Otto, author of Angry Weather, and acting director of the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford and co-investigator on the international project World Weather Attribution, joins the show to talk about how climate change impacts individual extreme weather events like wildfires, hurricanes, droughts, heatwaves, and more. 

Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also discuss the President's ability to ban fracking, the number of fracking jobs in Pennsylvania, and how a clean energy transition can generate a ton of new jobs.
