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.
