The Climate Pod

Dec 29, 2022

Another year has come to an end. In 2022, we saw a number of events unfold across the globe that further emphasized the need to address the climate crisis with greater urgency and accelerate the transition to clean energy. This is Part One of our look back of the year with some of the biggest newsmakers we spoke to in 2022. We'll review the first half of the year and remember how the conversation around the climate crisis evolved and responded to rapidly changing world events - from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, to spiking inflation, new IPCC reports, a promise of a major climate bill in the US and the potential for complete failure.

Featuring excerpts from our 2022 interviews with White House National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy, Paul Krugman, Bill McKibben, Rep. Ro Khanna, Don't Look Up co-writers Adam McKay and David Sirota, Professor Jeffrey Sachs, Dr. Marshall Shepherd, IPCC co-authors Joern Birkmann, Paulina Jaramillo, and Stephanie Roe, climate reporters David Roberts and Robinson Meyer, Gernot Wagner, and Norwegian Climate Minister Espen Barth Eide.
