The Climate Pod

Nov 6, 2019

ANNOUNCEMENT - The Climate Pod Live is happening on November 18th at 7 pm at Lincoln Hall in Chicago! GET TICKETS HERE


This week, the Trump Administration announced formal plans to exit the Paris Climate Agreement. What does this mean? What happens next? How will voters feel about it? Axios' Amy Harder joins the show to explain the stakes and weigh in on our attitudes toward the agreement and climate change overall. 

Then, Mark Arax, author of The Dreamt Land, discusses revisiting Paradise, California, on the first anniversary of The Camp Fire for his piece in California Sunday Magazine. Mark helps explains the myriad factors that have contributed to California wildfires, how the history of Paradise shaped the event, and who bears the most responsibility for the damage.
