Lee van der Voo: As The World Burns

9/29/2020
A few years ago, we discussed a high profile case, Juliana v. U.S., brought by 21 remarkable young plaintiffs across the country.

9/15/2020
Did you lose power at some point this summer?

John Stoehr on the 2020 Presidential Election

9/1/2020
In a little over 10 weeks, every American citizen will have the opportunity to have their vote counted to either elect a new president or to keep the current president in place. Or that’s what’s supposed to happen in theory, anyway. In reality, the principle of “one person, one vote” is violated in American electoral … Continue reading John Stoehr on the 2020 Presidential Election → The post John Stoehr on the 2020 Presidential Election appeared first on Sea Change Radio.

Under Pressure: Jeremy Hance

8/25/2020
These dark and troubling times have left very few of us stress and anxiety free. So we thought we’d check in with an expert on germophobia and anxiety. No, our guest this week on Sea Change Radio is not a psychologist. He is an environmental journalist, writer for Mongabay, and long-time friend of the show, … Continue reading Under Pressure: Jeremy Hance → The post Under Pressure: Jeremy Hance appeared first on Sea Change Radio.

Michael Mann: Agency and Urgency (re-broadcast)

8/11/2020
Back in 1999, a team of scientists published a graphic depiction reconstructing northern hemisphere temperatures for the previous 1000 years. The steep increase from the 1900s on inspired the scientific community to give this visual a clever nickname: the hockey stick graph.

“Vertical Farmers Never Have To Pray For Rain”

8/4/2020
Nine years ago on Sea Change Radio, we spoke to the self-proclaimed founding father of vertical farming, Dickson Despommier, about the concept of moving crops onwards and upwards (literally). In an interesting twist, the global COVID pandemic has resulted in a lot of abandoned office buildings. To proponents of vertical farming, these spaces may represent … Continue reading “Vertical Farmers Never Have To Pray For Rain” → The post “Vertical Farmers Never Have To Pray For Rain” appeared...
