The Climate Pod

Aug 19, 2020

This week, author and climate activist Jamie Margolin joins the show to talk about her new book, Youth to Power. We discuss how she found her voice in activism, how the youth movement is help powering climate action, what it's been like dealing with politicians, and activism in the COVID era.  

Then, Dr. Michalea King joins the show to discuss being the lead author on a new study on the Greenland Ice Sheet. What does it mean if the ice sheet has hit the "point of no return"? We dig into the science. 

Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also discuss wild temperatures in Death Valley and a new study on air pollution.
