    The Climate Chaos Of Ancient Civilizations (w/ Brian Fagan)

    59:11

    How did our ancestors handle catastrophic changes to their climate? Brian Fagan has been researching that very question for decades. As one of the world’s leading archaeological writers and recognized authorities on world prehistory, he has put together several great works on ancient climate change including the New York Times bestseller The Great Warming. Now, he's co-authored a new book Climate Chaos: Lessons on Survival from Our Ancestors with Cambridge University-trained archaeologist and writer Nadia Durrani. In this conversation with Fagan, we explore how ancient civilizations - from the Roman Emperors to Egyptian Pharaohs and many more - dealt with extreme environmental shifts and why climate change caused so many civilizations to eventually collapse. We explore the droughts, volcanoes, glacial melts, and other climate calamities that felled once-mighty civilizations and what we can learn from their example to lead us in our decisions today. Brian Fagan is a Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

    How Climate Change Worsens Droughts and Wildfires (w/ Dr. Park Williams)

    1:05:02

    This week, we take a deep dive into how climate change is exacerbating extreme droughts and accelerating wildfires with bioclimatologist Park Williams. Dr. Williams is an associate professor at UCLA's Department of Geography. His particular expertise in the causes and consequences of drought guides us through a wide-ranging conversation on the transformative changes we are seeing in the American West as temperatures rise and how we should adapt to a future of more frequent droughts and dangerous wildfires. Dr. Williams is the recent co-author of the paper, "Uncertainties, Limits, and Benefits of Climate Change Mitigation for Soil Moisture Drought in Southwestern North America," and he explains the biggest findings of the research, how bad drought has been over the past two decades, and how this compares to historic megadroughts.  You can learn more about Dr. Williams and his research at his website here.

    How Fossil Fuel Interests Weaponized Economists To Delay Climate Action (w/ Ben Franta)

    1:03:23

    This week, Ben Franta joins the show to talk about his latest paper, "Weaponizing Economics: Big oil, economic consultants, and climate policy delay”. He explains how fossil fuel companies knew for decades that their product was warming the planet and instead of investing in new energy options, leveraged economic experts to help slow necessary action to combat the climate crisis. We also discuss Harvard University's decision to divest from fossil fuels, which Ben advocated for as a student of Harvard University almost a decade ago. Ben is currently a graduate student at Stanford University focusing on the history of denial and delay tactics by the fossil fuel industry. He is also cofounder and current Director of Accountability Research for the Climate Social Science Network, a global network of social science scholars doing research on climate politics headquartered at Brown University.

Elizabeth also recalls how her early love of nature inspired her work and what she's doing to pass that on to a new generation. Elizabeth is the founder of Green Generation Initiative, which has planted 30,000 tree seedlings in Kenya.

    Covering Extreme Weather and Climate Disasters (w/ CBS News' Jeff Berardelli)

    34:24

    Hurricane Ida was a Category 4 hurricane, first causing massive damage to Louisiana as it made landfall and later flooding New York City and other areas across the eastern half of the United States. At the same time, the Caldor Fire and Dixie Fire are burning across South Lake Tahoe and the Sierras. Why are we experiencing more extreme weather disasters? CBS News Meteorologist and Climate Specialist Jeff Berardelli explains how a warming planet has made hurricanes, wildfires, droughts, and floods so much worse. He also explains the importance and potential collapse of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, also known as AMOC or the Gulf Stream. Jeff Berardelli has been a broadcast meteorologist for more than 25 years. He is currently the CBS News Meteorologist and Climate Specialist, reporting on extreme weather and the climate crisis across all CBS News broadcasts and platforms.
