Climate Connections is a daily (M-F), 90-second radio series that aims to help listeners understand how climate change is already impacting our lives and what diverse people and organizations are doing to reduce the associated risks. The series “connects the dots” between climate change and energy, extreme weather, public health, food and water, jobs and the economy, national security, and the creative arts, among other themes. Stories will include the voice of an individual affected by or helping to solve the problem: the voice of a farmer or rancher describing the impacts of the Great Plains drought on their livelihood; a homeowner describing the benefits of rooftop solar; or a scientist helping coastal communities adapt to rising sea levels. Consistent with the scientific evidence, these voices will help translate climate change from an abstract and seemingly distant problem into a concrete story about how it is affecting our lives here and now.
