In the latest episode of Citizens’ Climate Radio I sit down with Dr. Natasha DeJarnett from the American Public Health Association to talk about the health effects of climate change. These include mental health concerns. Natasha not only outlines these clearly, she also talks about the opportunities ahead we can pursue on a changing planet, particularly to improve community and health. Dr. Jalonne White-Newsome, senior program officer from the Kresge Foundation, then provides a new framework for looking at resiliency.
Each episode of the podcast has an artsy section and this month I feature a short story written by Dr. David R. Bowne, Associate Professor in the Department of Biology at Elizabethtown College. Using his scientific expertise and tapping into his creative side, David wrote the short story, Henry Ford Hated Glaciers. He reads an excerpt with us.
There is more to this episode too including some encouraging messages for climate advocates who may feel weary from well-doing, particularly when they see the steep road ahead.
