We Scooped PBS: Weather, Climate, & Freedom with Glenn “Hurricane” Schwartz & John Harte, PhD, 7/1/22
Our July 1st show featured an interview with the beloved local NBC TV news meteorologist, Glenn “Hurricane” Schwartz, recently retired. He spoke with us about how TV weather reporters present the science of climate change and the weather. Later that evening PBS News broadcast a similar story telling essentially the same story we’d just broadcast.
We also had one of the first - if not the first - stories in American media exploring the connection between the Supreme Court’s abortion rights ruling and climate change. We spoke with Dr. John Harte, Distinguished Professor of the Graduate School Ecosystem Sciences at the University of California in Berkeley, CA, about why he includes reproductive freedom as one of his climate change solutions, and what results the recent abortion decision could have on our society and our existential climate crisis.
