Previous America Adapts highlighted in this episode:
In episode 123 of, I hosted returning guest - climate fiction expert - Dr. Amy Brady! This was Amy’s third time on the podcast and we catch up on topics like: climate writers reaching out to scientists; can cli-fi influence people’s behavior to take action on climate change; how the tv and movie industry are taking note of climate fiction; and the prevalence of climate justice in cli-fi.
And In episode 108 of, I hosted Dr. Jisung Park, assistant professor at the Luskin School of Public Affairs at UCLA. We talked about Jisung’s research, showing how increased temperatures can negatively impact student academic performance. Also, rising temperatures can lower worker productively, seriously impacting the labor market. We also discussed the positives and negatives of adaptation solutions (air conditioning) to these emerging problems. Jisung also shared how UCLA is training the next generation of adaptation professionals.
