According to the calendar, Spring arrived yesterday. Took this picture today. Looks to me like Old Man Winter is hanging on. Might these nor’easters be a sign of climate change?

Those of us who think young people are apathetic about politics and our world will be quite surprised and inspired by this interview. Three young activists, Maddy Feldman, Ben Bristol, and Micah Lott - known by friends as Big Wind, spoke with Planet Philadelphia host Kay Wood about how to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. These guests were originally scheduled for the March 2nd Planet Philadelphia, but a nor’easter roared into town. Planet Philadelphia listeners are lucky that Kay managed to catch up with them before they headed off to the next city on their tour.
Rachel D. Valletta, Ph.D. is an environmental scientist and the director of the Climate and Urban Systems Partnership (CUSP), a four-city educational initiative seeking to engage urban residents more efficiently and effectively in climate change and resiliency education at The Franklin Institute. She spoke with host Kay Wood and reporter Linda Rosenwein about how to talk about climate change in our divisive times.
Tune in from 4-5:00 pm Friday, March 16, 2018, to Planet Philadelphia environmental radio show to hear these informative interviews and more.
We here at Planet Philadelphia are thinking about all those poor people who are shivering in the cold without power after the nor’easter. We sure hope they get it back on soon!
What happened last Friday?
Planet Philadelphia ran a repeat this past Friday. Till the last, I thought I’d be able to provide a new show. However, the Nor’easter blew in fierce enough that I was worried about the guests’ safety. I decided to run a repeat instead of asking them to trek through the snow and whipping winds.
Don’t loose hope though, those of you who were really looking forward to hearing that Planet Philadelphia with Big Wind talking about youth climate change activism and Dr. Rachelle Valletta telling us what to expect from climate change here in Philadelphia. You will get to hear from them. It will just be a bit delayed. I will keep you posted. It’s our planet and I know you want to hear about it.
