Your Call: The natural and cultural history of rain


On the January 26th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with award winning environmental journalist Cynthia Barnett about her new book “Rain: A Natural and Cultural History.”

Barnett writes that while rain is one of the trickier parts of the atmosphere to measure and to understand, changing rainfall patterns are among the earliest and most obvious signs of a warming planet. What does the history of rain tell us about how we should deal with climate change? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.


Cynthia Barnett, award-winning environmental journalist and author of three books including her most recent Rain: A Natural and Cultural History
