On this edition of Your Call's One Planet series, we kick off a special week of coverage about the climate crisis with Penn State Atmospheric Science professor Michael Mann.
KALW and Your Call are joining Covering Climate Now, a global journalism initiative committed to bringing more and better coverage to the defining story of our time. More than 250 global media outlets will cover a wide range of climate stories from September 15 - 23. This week, we’ll discuss the science, Hurricane Dorian and inequality, air pollution, the world’s food supply, indigenous led solutions, and more. Professor Mann will kick it all off by discussing the current state of the science, public policy, the growing climate movement, and solutions.
