After decades of denial and delay tactics by the fossil fuel industry, in 2021, America was largely unprepared for multiple climate-fueled extreme weather disasters. Wildfires. Heatwaves. Hurricanes. Droughts. Floods. Tornadoes.
How did a warming planet impact these weather events? Why haven't America's leaders done more to combat the climate crisis? What are fossil fuel companies still doing to delay action?
We answer all of those questions and more in Part One of The Climate Pod's 2021 Year in Review: Denial and Consequences, featuring clips from interviews we've conducted with guests like Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, Dr. Ed Hawkins, Dr. Michael Mann, Dr. Jane Goodall, Dr. Andrew Dessler, David Wallace-Wells, Dr. Maria Neira, Dr. Peter Hotez, Dr. Naomi Oreskes, Ben Franta, Kathy Baughman-McCloud, Alex Steffen, Scott Kelly, Jeff Berardelli, Dr. Park Williams, and Tim Jackson.
