In California Adapts 3:  The Synthesis, Doug Parsons and writer/producer Randy Olson talk about their overall impressions of climate adaptation in California. Each of the experts interviewed during the journey gave scores from 1 to 10 for their opinion of how well they think the state is addressing their element of climate adaptation. The scores are presented to three of the experts for their assessment. The analysis ends with one more expert - a dissenting voice in terms of how well California is preparing for the changes in the climate that are already happening.

Episode 63: What is “climate adaptation” and how well is California doing with it? The podcast “America Adapts” hosted by Doug Parsons has been exploring the topic of climate adaptation since 2016. In this three part special, sponsored by the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, Doug takes an in-depth look at the state of California, presenting its long history of environmental leadership, current work on adaptation throughout the state, and how California will be dealing with a changing environment in the future.

In this episode, Doug Parsons’ journeys around California exploring the five most important elements of climate adaptation for the state — fire, drought, flood, temperature and sea level rise. For each one he goes into the field with an expert. He visits the burn area of the Thomas Fire of December, 2017 with a fire captain, talks about drought with the state’s “Water Czar,” standing beside the Sacramento River, hears the details of the ARkStorm Mega-flood Scenario from a climate scientist, follows an urban heat expert using a laser thermometer to measure the temperature of asphalt in Los Angeles, and visits the central coast of California to talk about sea level rise. The five sequences provide an overview of climate adaptation for the state.

Episode 62: What is “climate adaptation” and how well is California doing with it? The podcast “America Adapts” hosted by Doug Parsons has been exploring the topic of climate adaptation since 2016.

In this three part special, sponsored by the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, Doug takes an in-depth look at the state of California, presenting its long history of environmental leadership, current work on adaptation throughout the state, and how California will be dealing with a changing environment in the future.

In this episode, California Adapts 1:  The Storytellers, consists of three main stories. Geologist Jeff Mount of UC Davis tells the epic tale of the 1861-1862 floods that washed out Sacramento, killing hundreds and forcing the temporary moment of the state capital to San Francisco. Environmental activist Ed Begley, Jr. and “The Queen of Green,” longtime head of the California Air Resources Board (CARB), Mary Nichols tells about how the state managed to clean up the smog problem of the 1970’s, then brings us up to the present with her perspective on Governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Brown with regard to climate leadership.

In episode 57 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons talks with experts from all over the world focusing on the conservation of the elusive snow leopard of the Asia High Mountains and how this species - and the communities around this species - are adapting to climate change.  Guests from Nepal, India, China, Russia, Sweden, and the US share stories on studying this amazing cat and talk about some of the innovative adaptation strategies that are being put in place thanks to funding from a USAID project that is being implemented by World Wildlife Fund.

Two additional themes emerge in this episode, the influence of Peter Matthiessen’s epic masterpiece, The Snow Leopard, and stories from these experts about their own magical encounters with the snow leopard in the wild.  Peter Matthiessen never did see a snow leopard, but several of these experts did. Hear their amazing stories in detail.

This podcast was sponsored by World Wildlife Fund and USAID as part of the Asia’s High Mountains project.

WHAT IS SURFRIDER – Chad discusses the history of Surfrider Foundation, how it started as a group of concerned citizens, to becoming a worldwide leader in coastal conservation. Chad shares some of their high profile victories, e.g., plastic bag ban.

ADAPTATION ALIGNMENT – Doug and Chad discuss the challenges of institutionalizing adaptation planning into an existing organization. Chad shares how Surfrider is approaching this issue and how members can play a role in this process.

A SEA LEVEL RISE WIN - Doug and Chad discuss the challenges sea level rise poses to coastal habitats and the difficulty for organizations to define what a policy ‘victory’ is in relation to sea level rise.

SURFING AND ADAPTING – Chad shares some research on how sea level rise will impact favorite surf spots and his recommendations for the best books on surfing.

MITIGATION IS NOT ADAPTATION – Chad and Doug discuss the problem of conservation groups focusing on carbon mitigation when their core mission more closely aligns with adaptation.  These groups are grappling with what their climate identity should be.

David Roberts Quotes:

  • “People’s gut impressions and instincts are not reliable guides to social policy.”
  • “We need to be all guns blazing on mitigation.”
  • The only people capable of changing the minds of the right wing base on climate change...is right wing elites. There’s no set of magical words that environmentalists can say to break this spell of denialism…”

In episode 51 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons talks with famed climate and energy writer David Roberts of Vox online news (and formerly of Grist).  David discusses his transition from his long time perch at Grist to the much bigger platform at Vox.  Doug and David then dig into recent hurricane media coverage; the morality of climate mitigation versus adaptation; and the near hopeless politics of climate change. It’s a dense, fascinating and humorous discussion.

In this Episode:

HURRICANE MEDIA – Doug and David talk about how the media has covered the two recent hurricanes and if it’s an appropriate to talk about climate change during storm coverage. We also discuss if Rush Limbaugh had a point in his criticism of hurricane coverage.

GRIST TO VOX – David shares his writing history, starting at Grist environmental news (and the freedom Grist gave him to ‘ponder’ subjects for writing), to Vox and he also explains the challenges of producing regular content at a much more deadline driven news shop like Vox. 

SURE, LET’S ADAPT – We discuss why David ‘has it in for adaptation.’ He describes his evolution of thinking on the subject and he explains the moral case for both mitigation and adaptation

ADAPTATION POLITICS – Doug and David discuss:  Who will own adaptation politically, Republicans (if and when they come around on climate change) or Democrats? 

FORTRESS AMERICA – David describes how getting people to abandon their homes due to climate change will require a huge level of trust between government and people, a trust clearly lacking now.  David also explains that when climate impacts come into full view, we’ll likely pull inward as a country and protect ourselves in ‘fortress America.’

In episode 50 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons talks with Dr. Pat Michaels, Director of the Center for the Study of Science at the libertarian Cato Institute.  Doug and Pat discuss free market approaches to adaptation and the potential role of the Cato Institute in this emerging field.

In this Episode:

NATURAL ADAPTATION – Dr. Michaels shares examples of how society, across the planet, have already adapted to extreme weather. 

GDP ADAPTATOIN – Dr. Michaels shares his belief that as the economies of developing countries grow, they will have the economic resources to develop the necessary environmental rules and regulations to adapt to climate change.

NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE – Doug and Pat find common ground on the need to reform the National Flood Insurance Program to discourage rebuilding in flood prone areas. It is an area of rare agreement between environmentalists and libertarians.

CATO INSTITUTE ADAPTS? – Doug and Pat discuss the need for the Cato Institute to play a larger role in adaptation policy development and the challenges of getting over the controversies of climate denial.

In this Episode:

ADAPTATION MEDIA – Erika describes how she got into the field of adaptation reporting at Climatewire.

CLIMATE GENTRIFICATION – Erika talks about this emerging issue and how it impacts low income communities and also how it’s influencing the real estate market in Miami. Erika discusses how “Jim Crow Laws” led to the present day racial make up of Miami and how these areas are in some of the highest elevations in the region.  We also discuss if climate gentrification is just a short term phenomenon created by real estate speculators to drive up the price of real estate in the short term, ignoring the long term realities of climate change impacts.

FELLOW REPORTERS - Erika talks about her favorite climate reporters and the types of stories they cover.
