In episode 66 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons talks with Kate Bishop Williams at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada.  Kate is a lecturer at the University and Waterloo and she used an America Adapts episode, “Deconstructing a Climate Change Skeptic” as part of her class curricula. Kate discusses why she chose this episode to use a tool to teach her students effective climate communication. Doug and Kate also discuss open access and the value of podcasts as a learning tool in the classroom.  Doug speaks with two of the students enrolled in Kate’s class and gets their feedback on what they learned from the Marc Morano episode (skeptic)  and their impressions of using a podcast in the classroom. This and much more!

Topics in this episode:

  • Using podcasts in the classroom to promote environmental change;
  • Learning that climate skepticism is more prevalent than many realize;
  • Developing guidelines for listening to a podcast and talking climate change;
  • Understanding the role of open access educational materials, especially climate resources;
  • Students explain how listening to a climate skeptic enhanced their ability to communicate climate change.

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 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.
