Episode 103: You don’t have to look far to see the ravages of climate change. In recent weeks, one of the deadliest wildfires in U.S. history killed more than 100 people in Hawaii, and July was the hottest month ever recorded.
Hosts Richard Kyte and Scott Rada talk about how we must do two things at once — try to somehow slow the warming while also being better prepared for the effects still to come.
