How is climate change affecting us right now?


Climate change is frequently perceived as a slow-moving threat that only wreaks havoc on adorable creatures in the Arctic. The narrative that the modern world is immune to the destruction that comes with rising global temperatures is dangerously misleading. Despite the overwhelming majority of scientists speaking out on the issue, skeptics remain.

Greg Dalton, the founder of Climate One at The Commonwealth Club, joined host Chip Franklin, Nikki Medoro and Heather Hamann to set the facts straight in this week’s rendition of “Explain Like I’m Five.” He addressed common arguments against climate change and provided advice on how people can do their part to, essentially, stop the demise of the planet. The goal is hefty, but not impossible!

The podcast below is a must listen for those looking to do their part in reducing their carbon footprint.

Explain Like I’m Five is presented by the Commonwealth Club, the nation’s oldest and largest public affairs forum, intent on finding truth and turning it loose in the world.
