My first podcast was an interview with Dr. John Harte from UC Berkeley — who studies the interaction of humans and climate change — and Dr. Ross MacPhee from the American Museum of Natural History in New York — who studies the extinction of woolly mammoths on Wrangel Island in the Russian Arctic.

We talked about what “global warming” means, why the current forecasts might be underestimating the near-term impact of global warming(!), and an upcoming trip to Wrangel Island to learn firsthand about global climate change in an area that is already feeling the effects. You can go here to listen to the archived show, and you can go here to find out how to travel to Wrangel Island this July 5-18, along with Tom Brokaw and four world-class scientists.
