This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Ted McIntyre, Franklin resident and climate activist. We recorded this via the Zoom conference bridge Thursday, May 12, 2022.  

Ted helps me “make sense of climate” and we hope this helps with your understanding as well. 

If you have climate questions or Franklin specific climate questions, send them in and we’ll try to answer them in a future session 

The recording runs about 48 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Ted McIntyre as he helps me “make sense of climate.”

This is an equity issue (only a tiny fraction of humans will ever fly) and a challenge to linear thinking. Would the sun still come up if you couldn’t  get to Beijing in 12 hours?
