“It is beyond a reasonable doubt, humans are contributing to climate change.”
In episode 36 of America Adapts, host Doug Parsons talks to Judge Alice Hill of the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. Judge Hill shares her experiences as the Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Resilience Policy on the National Security Council within the White House under the Obama administration. In the podcast, Judge Hill also discusses her journey from practicing law in Paris, to her work prosecuting high profile white collar crime in Los Angeles, to being recruited to serve as Senior Counselor to Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Ann Napolitano . It’s an enlightening, sobering and ultimately inspiring conversation with one of the world’s experts on climate change and its national security implications.

In the second segment, I talk with Tim Watkins about President Trump’s disastrous recent climate change Executive orders, that dismantle the Clean Power Rule and also roll back local government adaptation efforts. It’s a sobering conversation.
