Prescription for Justice - Climate Change: Weather Extremes and Rising Sea Levels
Guest Kristina Dahl, PhD, senior climate scientist for the Climate & Energy program at the Union of Concerned Scientists and lead author of Killer Heat in the United States: Climate Choices and the Future of Dangerously Hot Days, Union of Concerned Scientists, 2019. November, 2019. This episode, following on Episode 23 on Climate Change, delves into the consequences of weather extremes (e.g., heat waves, wildfires and mega-fires) and rising sea levels (mass dislocations of humans, trillions of dollars in construction and relocation costs). Dr. Dahl also provides a brief overview of the valuable work done by the Union of Concerned Scientists with respect to climate, energy, transportation, food, nuclear weapons, and science and democracy/sound science.
