The Climate Pod

Dec 11, 2019

A recent study made news last week when it confirmed many past climate models were pretty damn accurate. We talk to Zeke Hausfather, one of the study's co-authors, about why his group did the study, what exactly they found, and what it means to climate science.

Then, we talk to Tamara Toles O'Laughlin, who was named's North American Director in 2019. This is a fascinating, wide-ranging conversation about building a better climate movement and driving real change in the face of a growing threat to the planet and powerful interests pushing back against progress.
