Blue Dot: Harnessing the power of cold: an interview with Fred Hogge (12/31/2022)

Dave Schlom visits with British born Thailand resident Fred Hogge about his new book, Of Ice and Men: How We’ve Used Cold to Transform Humanity. In it, Hogge traces the roots of how ice and cold have played a role in everything from polar exploration disasters to our modern world of refrigeration and air conditioning. Imagine your favorite summer beverage without ice cubes handy to put in it. We take our ability to create ice and chilled air for granted but it makes living in extreme heat climates possible as well as preserving our food as it travels from its sources to your local supermarket. It’s a fascinating and chill conversation!
