On the Move: The Overheating Earth and the Uprooting of America with Abrahm Lustgarten
In episode 205 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Abrahm Lustgarten, an investigative climate reporter and author from Propublica. Abrahm discusses his work on climate change and migration and highlights his coverage of various climate-related issues such as water scarcity, sea level rise and wildfire. Abrahm’s book, "On the Move," explores climate-driven migration in the United States. He traveled the country learning how areas are preparing, or not, for the impacts of climate change. He goes on the ground and interviews people in the heart of these climate impact zones.  You’ll learn the unique struggles people have as it becomes increasingly expensive…and dangerous…to live in these impact zones. We also discuss how the media is doing covering climate migration and what the government can potentially do to help with this growing threat. And an all new episode tradition, Doug's "Hot Take"!  Topics covered: Abrahm Lustgarten and climate journalism Abrahm’s  Book: "On the Move" Reporting at ProPublica Winners and Losers of Climate Migration Ecological Impact of Climate Migration Media Coverage of Climate Migration Book Promotion and Tour Future Project on Societal Conflict from Climate Migration Quotes from Abrahm Lustgarten in episode: I think all we can say about that is that we all can anticipate an era of great change and I think it'll scramble the map. It's hard to know when that'll happen, when there's a tipping point, both in terms of people moving or what that means for politics. But I think that all that I could say about that is that I wouldn't be surprised if 25 years from now, the electoral map looks entirely different from how it does today in part in response to the kind of changes that I write about… So we're having this kind of scary conversation about the economics of home values in California. And then that particular day, I was looking out my window into the wildland urban interface in the suburban place that I that I live in. And I was like, Hey, wait, Jesse, I live right one of these spots you're describing, should I and he just cut me off and presumed my question was, should I live in a place that I live in? should I move? And he was like, yes, get out of there. You got to go. That was three or four years ago and I haven't moved yet.   Check out the America Adapts Media Kit here!

Bill shares his insights into how climate change now intersects with every aspect of our lives, transforming all beats into climate beats. Drawing from his experiences covering climate stories, he emphasizes the power of storytelling. We delve into the inspiration behind his book, "Life As We Know It," which looks at positive climate stories all inspired by the birth of his son. Critiquing mainstream media's coverage of climate change, he calls for a shift towards highlighting adaptation and innovation over sensational disasters. Bill unveils his upcoming special, "Adaptation Nation," and shares the joys and challenges of interviewing icons like Paul McCartney. Bill will leave you with some practical advice on how you can bring climate communication into the important adaptation work you’re doing. Join us as we explore the interconnectedness of climate with our lives and the transformative power of storytelling in shaping our collective response to the greatest challenge of our time.

Life, Liberty and Climate Data: The Privatization of a Public Good
In episode 203 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Dr. Justin Mankin. Justin is a climate scientist and associate professor at Dartmouth College. Doug and Justin discuss his provocative column in the New York Times on climate data accessibility – should tax funded climate data remain a public good.  Justin also explains the intricacies of climate modeling and the ethical considerations of private sector involvement. Justin also emphasizes the significance of aligning private and public sector efforts for effective climate adaptation. Doug and Justin discuss the importance of having a National Adaptation Plan and Justin also highlights the work of his students in climate impact attribution and loss and damage research. America Adapts is increasingly covering the issue of climate data and modeling and in this thought providing discussion, we learn about the ethical considerations of privatizing a public good. Topics covered: Understanding Climate Models The Right to Climate Data Legal Implications of Climate Data Accuracy Interaction with Private Sector on Climate Science Free Climate Models vs. Paid Models Importance of National Adaptation Plan National Resilience Framework vs. National Adaptation Plan Dr. Mankin's Student Research Projects Recommendation for Future Guest: Erin Mayfield and Klaus Keller Quotes:  Dr. Justin Mankin: “I think there's a gigantic gap between the science I do and the decision relevance of it.”   “My investigations, which are fundamentally about informing adaptation and risk management of climate change that science is paid for,? And to the extent that science is linked back to people's tax dollars. I have an absolute imperative to communicate my science to whoever will listen.”   “And that means that a national adaptation plan would establish minimal require informational requirements and make those data to inform adaptation decisions available to people in a legible format, right?”   Check out the America Adapts Media Kit here!

The U.S. Department of Defense's Energy and Environment Innovation Symposium – Focus on Resilience with SERDP + ESTCP
In the epic 200th episode of America Adapts, we’re partnering with the U.S. Department of Defense and highlighting the adaptation research they support.  In this episode, we're turning our focus to The Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program, or SERDP, at the DoD and the Energy and Environment Innovation Symposium they hosted in late 2023.  As the architects of innovation and research, you will hear how the DoD is interacting with partners and providing resilience research for military installations and other civilian applications. Get ready to explore topics ranging from surprise events to E-DNA, and that's just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the groundbreaking research conducted at SERDP.  We’re taking you behind the scenes to understand what it truly means to take a research idea, secure funding, and see it through to real-world applications in the field. SERDP is actively exploring ways to expedite this process.  Throughout this episode, you'll hear from a diverse range of voices – university researchers, DoD staff, policy experts, and those actively working in climate adaptation. What a fantastic way to celebrate our 200th episode – working with the U.S. Department of Defense! This episode was generously sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense.

Climate Risk and Insurance: Improving Equity, Enhancing Resilience, and Stabilizing Markets – Conference Podcast
In episode 194 of America Adapts, we take a deep dive on climate risk and the insurance sector. Earlier in the fall host Doug Parsons attended a two day conference hosted at American University in Washington DC. The conference was organized by Environmental Defense Fund, SBP and American University. The event brought together experts that focus on the role of insurance when it comes to building equity in disaster recovery, reducing future losses, expanding coverage with new innovations, and managing increasing climate-related disasters. You’ll hear the need for insurance companies to conduct climate risk analysis and the role of government in addressing these issues. Experts at this conference laid the intellectual groundwork on where the insurance industry will need to go and you’ll hear highlights in this episode.

Empowering Youth for Nature-Based Flood Management: World Wildlife Fund’s Flood Green Guide Youth Champions Program
In episode 194 of America Adapts, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) returns to continue the  'Flood Green Guide' series focused on nature based approaches to flood risk management. This is a follow up to the episodes from 2018 published shortly after the release of their “Natural and Nature Based Flood Management: A Green Guide, better known now around the world as the Flood Green Guide. In the intervening years, despite setbacks by the pandemic, WWF has been busy doing trainings on the flood green guide and in this episode, we're exploring how WWF engages youth in flood risk and management.  We'll hear from young individuals worldwide, sharing their experiences with flooding and their thoughts on nature-based approaches to flood risk management and the importance of art, science, and engaging communities. We’ll discuss why WWF is launching a new Flood Green Guide Youth Champion initiative, the importance of including youth in flood risk reduction strategies and some of the barriers young leaders face while trying to make meaningful change.  And we’ll hear from a group of young professionals who traveled to Sri Lanka to work with the WWF team to design the Flood green guide youth champions initiative from the ground up.  The episode was generously sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund.

Climate Change Coverage at the Washington Post with the “Climate Coach” Michael Coren
In episode 193 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Michael Coren, a journalist from the Washington Post who writes the Climate Coach Advice column. We go behind the scenes and learn how a national newspaper like the Wash Post covers climate change. Several major newspapers have expanded their climate coverage in the last couple years and you’ll learn how the Post has structured that coverage.  We also discuss some of the diverse topics he covers in his “Climate Coach” column and his increasing focus on climate adaptation. The conversation also touches on climate skepticism and the state of climate action in California, showcasing Michael's unique perspective and expertise in the field of climate journalism. The episode starts with a short interview with Laur Hess Fisher from MIT who shares a preview of Season 5 of the Today I Learned Climate Podcast.    Transcript of the episode available here. Topics Covered: How a major newspaper covers climate change The Climate Coach advice column Should the media use the phrase “natural disaster”? Should Adaptation be covered differently by the news media? Climate Skepticism: an underreported story?

Climate Change and Extreme Heat End of Summer Episode with Dr. Kelly Turner and Dr. Ladd Keith
In episode 192 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Dr. Kelly Turner and Dr. Ladd Keith. Kelly is an Associate Professor of Urban Planning at UCLA and Ladd is an assistant professor in the School of Landscape Architecture and Planning at the University of Arizona.  We learn how extreme heat disproportionately impacts marginalized communities.  We also explore the evolving media coverage of extreme heat. The three of us break down the highs and lows of all the media coverage of extreme heat this past summer.  We also learn about Kelly’s research on heat's impact on California schools, and what that means for both public health and student learning.  We take a dive into federal approaches to heat management and learn about the glaring disparity in resources and attention allocated to extreme heat compared to other climate hazards and ponder the potential for FEMA to classify extreme heat as a disaster declaration.  We also discuss the value of having a national adaptation plan for extreme heat planning. Finally, and yes, we go there, we get an update on the efforts to name heat waves. We highlight the pros and cons of this approach and discuss other options.  It is a gangbuster episode and that’s just a sampling of what we cover. Transcripts for this episode available here. (These are computer generated so pardon the errors.) Topics Covered:  Dr. Turner specializes in heat equity research, while Dr. Keith focuses on heat policy planning and governance. Increasing prevalence of extreme heat due to climate change and its disproportionate impact on marginalized groups. Media coverage of extreme heat is becoming more sophisticated, highlighting impacts on workers and public health. Dr. Turner's research in California focuses on schools and heat’s impact on student learning. Discussion of heating planning strategies including shade in urban design. The Biden administration is updating heat safety labor laws, emphasizing the need for comprehensive regulations at state and federal levels and the potential for FEMA labeling heat events as disaster declarations. Naming heat waves to increase public awareness is debated, highlighting the importance of reaching vulnerable populations. Will heat lead to managed retreat from regions that become uninhabitable? A national adaptation plan is emphasized to address heat impacts, especially for marginalized communities. Thoughts on Jeff Goodell’s “The Heat Will Kill You” book.  Donate to America Adapts Subscribe to the America Adapts newsletter here. Listen to America Adapts on your favorite app here!

In episode 188 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Susan Crawford. Susan is a law professor at Harvard Law School, focusing on adaptation and public and the author of a new book, Charleston: Race, Water, and the Coming Storm. We discuss the intersection of race and climate change in Charleston's infrastructure planning. We highlight the city's reliance on tourism, the impacts of climate change on marginalized communities, and potential solutions such as buyouts and managed retreat. Learn terms like raging politeness and benevolent paternalism and their relevance to race relations in the city. The conversation emphasizes the importance of inclusive approaches, government intervention, and interdisciplinary collaboration in addressing climate challenges. It’s a riveting discussion about one of America’s oldest cities and how it plans to adapt to climate change.

The Fundamentals (and ethics) of Architecture and Climate Adaptation
Donate to America Adapts In episode 187 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Dena Prastos, founder and CEO of the architectural firm Indigo River.  In this episode, we learn the fundamentals of architecture and climate adaptation. Dena and Doug discuss the crucial role architects play in advocating for sustainable and resilient design practices that emphasize climate change risks. We discuss Indigo River's focus on waterfront projects in flood-prone areas and their incorporation of resilience and adaptation into designs, especially in the New York region. Dena also addresses the ethical dilemmas of designing for climate change.  She shares the role of governing bodies in architecture and how they can help bring adaptation into this sector. This was a fascinating discussion: how does one behave as an ethical architect in the age of climate change?    What are the ethics of adaptation? Do they differ by sector? Artificial intelligence and its role in architecture? Introduction and Overview of Indigo River Architects' Role in Climate Adaptation and Sustainable Design Architects' Responsibility in Advocating Sustainable Construction Practices Balancing Ethics and Client Demands Ethics of Designing in High-Risk Areas The Ethics of Architecture and Adapting to Future Scenarios The Impact of Infrastructure Investment Act on Architecture and Grants Process Architectural governance The Future Role of Architects Image credit:  Danist Soh and Anders Jildén Subscribe to the America Adapts newsletter here.

The Wild Wild West of Climate Modeling
Donate to America Adapts  In episode 186 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Madison Condon, a law professor at Boston University School of Law. Doug and Madison explore the critical role climate models play in adaptation planning, but more importantly, their capabilities, what they can and can not do,.  Madison explains what is the "climate industrial complex’ and if there’s a need for the government to step in and regulate this emerging sector.  Also, should these climate analytic and modeling companies be liable for making bad projections…and how can you hold a company liable for a projection that’s set decades in the future?  Madison also critiques a recent Federal Reserve Bank attempt at stress testing the climate risks for the banking sector.  Great conversation on the critical topic of climate modeling!  The Federal Reserve “is a climate laggard.” What are climate models and what can and can’t they do? What is the “climate industrial complex”? How right, is “right” enough when it comes to climate models? Could climate analytic/modeling companies be held liable for bad projections? The role of climate analytic groups like First Street Foundation. Do we need a “National Climate Service” to provide basic climate data? Do adaptation planners understand the role of climate models in their work? Subscribe to the America Adapts newsletter here.

Climate Change and the Legal System: Why the U.S. Constitution Needs to Adapt with Law Professor Mark Nevitt
In episode 182 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons host Mark Nevitt, a former Navy Jag and now Law professor at Emory University.  Mark shares his insights on the intersection of law and climate change. They discuss how US laws were created during a much more stable climate and how the legal system has not kept up with the current climate moment. The takings clause in the US Constitution is now relevant for climate change and Mark and Doug dig into this issue. Mark also considers his military experience good preparation to get into climate adaptation. We also discuss whether judges should recuse themselves if they are climate skeptics and should we amend the US Constitution to address important adaptation issues. Also, what would happen if the President declared a national emergency around climate change. Join us for this fascinating discussion on the challenges and opportunities at the intersection of law and climate change. Topics covered: ·         Mark's military background in the Navy and military justice informs his perspective on climate change adaptation. ·         US laws were created during a time of more stable climate, which poses legal uncertainties for climate adaptation measures. ·         The takings clause in the US Constitution is relevant to climate change adaptation.  ·         Cities that commit funding for infrastructure are now liable to maintain it, even in the face of long-term climate impacts.  ·         Climate skeptics may pose a challenge to legal decisions in climate adaptation cases, raising questions about judge recusal. ·         Is there a need to amend the US Constitution to address important adaptation issues? ·         Without a change in legal doctrine, climate adaptation will default to unmanaged retreat, exacerbating existing inequalities. ·         A declaration of a national emergency around climate change by the President could help to spur action on climate adaptation.  ·         The 5th Amendment presents challenges for implementing many climate adaptation measures due to its provisions on property rights and compensation.

Climate Equity Growing Pains, Adaptation Research and Why Universities Struggle to Offer Resilience Programs with Dr. Eric Chu of UC Davis
In episode 180 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Dr. Eric Chu. Eric shares the challenges of integrating climate curricula into universities and the functions of the UC Davis Climate Adaptation Research Center. We also discuss the importance of working with university students to determine their professional adaptation work needs. We take a closer look at Chapter 12 of the National Climate Assessment (NCA) and discuss why it isn't used more frequently by adaptation professionals. Furthermore, we explore the NCA's efforts to avoid replicating the IPCC report process. We discuss the growing pains that climate equity is going through as Eric highlights the need to define an idealized climate equity goal before we can realistically accomplish it. We also discuss the emptiness of much of the rhetoric surrounding climate equity discussions. Finally, we touch on the fact that adaptation research typically lags behind adaptation practice. Topics Covered:  Challenges of bringing climate curricula into a university system. UC Davis’ Climate Adaptation Research Center functions. Working with University students to help them determine their professional adaptation work needs. Chapter 12 of the National Climate Assessment and why isn’t it used more by adaptation professionals? NCA trying not to replicate the IPCC report process (by being too wordy). Need to define an idealized climate equity goal before we can realistically accomplish it. A lot of climate equity is empty rhetoric. Well intentioned practitioners have no clue what they want. The superficial nature of climate equity discussions. Adaptation research typically is two steps behind adaptation practice Check out the America Adapts Media Kit here! Subscribe to the America Adapts newsletter here.

Mangroves for Community and Climate: Adapting in Harmony with Nature at WWF
In episode 179 of America Adapts, I’ve partnered with World Wildlife Fund to learn the critical role mangrove forests play in coastal adaptation and the work WWF is doing with their Mangroves for Community and Climate project.   You’ll hear how WWF is applying its three core adaptation strategies:  ecosystem-based adaptation, nature-friendly adaptation, and climate-smart conservation. We journeyed to the Yucatán in Mexico to speak with mangrove experts from around the world - Mexico, Madagascar, Colombia, Fiji, Australia and the US – all coming together to share their expertise and knowledge to help mangroves persist in a changing climate. WWF is working to conserve mangroves around the world through various initiatives, including the development of a climate-smart mangrove restoration decision support tool. Finally, we’ll hear how WWF’s Environment and Disaster Management and Climate Crowd programs are helping communities adapt to climate change while valuing and reducing pressure on the critical ecosystem services that mangroves provide. It’s an epic size episode focusing on a critical species for adaptation! Topics covered: Learn about WWF’s three core strategies for adaptation. What WWF is doing to conserve mangroves globally. What is the climate-smart mangrove restoration decision support tool. Results of the Mangrove Workshop in Merida, Mexico. How mangroves help reduce risk to coastal flooding and storm surges.  What happens to mangroves following a disaster?  Some research in Florida, surprisingly, says in some cases mangroves may do more harm than good when we build out in front of them. Do people generally see value in keeping mangroves intact for other reasons besides coastal protection. What is WWF’s Climate Crowd program. Experts in this Episode: ·    Shaun Martin, Vice President, Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience, WWF US ·         Karen Douthewaite, Director, Oceans, WWF US ·         Pilar Jacobo, Nature-based Solutions Coordinator, WWF Mexico ·         Dr. Siddarth Narayan – East Carolina University  ·         Alejandra Calzada, Climate Change Adaptation Coordinator, WWF Mexico ·         Luz Cervantes, Senior Program Officer, Environment and Disaster Management, WWF US ·         Claudia Duran, Field Officer, WWF Mexico ·         Nicole Chabaneix, Senior Program Officer, Climate Risk Management and Resilience, WWF US ·         Dr. Catherine Lovelock – University of Queensland  ·         Dr. Jemma Purandare, University of Queensland ·         Ixchel Lopez, Deputy Director, Oceans, WWF Mexico ·         Ryan Bartlett, Director, Climate Risk Management and Resilience, WWF US ·         Jaime Villareal,  Climate Change Adaptation Officer, WWF Mexico Check out the America Adapts Media Kit here!
