The Climate Pod

Dec 14, 2022

How have capitalism, colonialism, racism, and other social factors impacted how humans interact with our environment? How will better understanding these connections allow us to create solutions to the climate crisis that not only decarbonize our economy but also make it a world that everyone wants to live in, not just a lucky few? Based on the teachings of Karl Marx, the study of Urban Political Ecology seeks to answer these questions and more.

On this week's episode, we speak with Dr. Tait Mandler, a co-editor of the new book "Turning Up the Heat: Urban Political Ecology for A Climate Emergency". "Turning Up the Heat" is a collection of essays from leading Political Ecologists that help frame the multitude of crises humans and the environment face today as a direct result of the politics of our time.
