In this Air Check, the team dives into the mysterious disease affecting birds in the Eastern U.S. and discusses media rhetoric around extreme weather events in the context of climate change. They focus in on headlines about recent deadly heat in the Northwest.
In this Air Check, professor and biogeochemist Gabriel Filippelli joins us again to talk about what a year in the pandemic has taught us about greenhouse gas emissions and our capacity to change systems. From the graphs to the big ideas, we cover a lot of ground in 15 minutes.
What does climate change have to do with freezing temperatures, heavy snows, and overwhelmed utilities? Professor and biogeochemist Gabriel Filippelli joins us to explain.

What does it mean for policy to be quiet, for policy to successfully tip-toe its way through the U.S. legislative system and contribute to greater sustainability and resilience? Which parts can or should make more noise, and what informs our understanding of what is pragmatic and reasonable?
In this Air Check, Jim and Emily try to work through the concept of quiet climate policy, recently outlined in the context of a post-Covid world by the Breakthrough Institute (https://thebreakthrough.org/articles/saying-the-quiet-part-loud).
This week, Jim and Gabe discuss their reaction to the American Jobs Plan, which claims to aim to "unify and mobilize the country to meet the great challenges of our time: the climate crisis and the ambitions of an autocratic China." They talk budget sufficiency, electric vehicles, and more.
They also lament the brown goo that a late frost made of their magnolia blossoms.

As utility operators across the country move to weatherize power grids and projections show another dry year for the Western U.S., what should we look out for? What questions should we be asking? Jim and Emily start the conversation.
When you hear the word leadership, you may think about hierarchy. But it doesn't have to be that way.
In this episode, Laura Calandrella, author of Our Next Evolution: Transforming Collaborative Leadership to Shape Our Planet’s Future, helps us understand the importance of connection and relationship, dialogue and consensus. Her strategy is attentive to history and power dynamics. You know. The sort of long-term principles we need as climate change intensifies and demands greater collective resilience.
