ECOSHOCK — Battling for Climate Sanity

Breaking science news while Nero fiddles Famous American climate scientist Michael E. Mann on fight to save climate science, & his new paper: why extreme weather is more common. UK scientist Sarah Chadburn’s new look at fast thawing permafrost. Professor & journalist Marissa Landrigan’s new book: transitioning from vegetarianism back to meat.

Dr. Mann has just testified to a House Committee, published an opinion piece in Time Magazine. Somehow, he’s also the lead author in important new science that details how our greenhouse emissions have derailed the Jet Stream, leaving us with more extreme weather. Get ready. Droughts, floods, and fires are now part of “the new normal”.

Almost a quarter of the land in the northern hemisphere is frozen. But this permafrost is thawing much faster than anyone thought possible. On our current course, almost half could be gone by the end of this century, re-arranging the landscape and emitting massive amounts of greenhouse gases. Wel talk with the lead author of the new study, Dr. Sarah Chadburn from the University of Leeds, UK.

Professor Marissa Landrigan has been widely published in America. In her new book, she traces her relationships with food that lead to a surprising turn.

Greens assume that a vegetarian diet is harm-free. But as we hear, in a factory farm system that isn’t true. From Montana to Ohio to Kansas, Landrigan morphs into “vegetarian-ish”. We hear about her new book, which stimulates a lot of questions for everyone who eats.

Featured speakers: Michael E. Mann, Sarah Chadburn, Marissa Landrigan. Interviews and background music by Alex Smith of Radio Ecoshock.
