Poet and ecologist Lilace Mellin Guignard in this week’s Climate Stew Podcast raises an important and moving question about parenting in a time of climate crisis. What I love about her reflection on this topic is the joy and hope she brings to it.
She remarks about how this is an amazing time to be a parent, one filled with opportunity as one thoughtfully navigates with children the changes that are already upon up. She also shares some of her poetry and talks about the role of the artist in addressing pressing issues.
This week’s episode also has an important piece about Black Lives Matter. Looking back from 150 years in the future Timothy Meadows reflects on how the activism around police brutality and justice paves the way for more safety and security in times of severe weather events.
