Notes From the Climate Beat with Justin Worland, Senior Correspondent at TIME
Play • 20 min

Climate is so much in the news these days that we might forget that ten years ago, it wasn’t even a beat covered by many publications.

That’s why we invited Justin Worland, a Senior Correspondent at TIME, to the latest episode of the Siemens Energy Podcast. Of the eight years that Justin has been at TIME, seven of them have been on the climate beat. He chats with people as varied as oil and gas executives and Extinction Rebellion, giving him a chance to observe the intersection of policy, the private sector, and society.

We started the conversation by talking about the implications of policy changes — there are necessarily societal changes that come when you start implementing climate policy. Justin pondered what that meant for the future. What if the public decided they weren’t happy with higher prices? Could that lead to reversals in policy?

We also discussed:

  • The movement of climate issues from the margins to the mainstream
  • Current political changes related to climate issues
  • How some countries might deal with climate policies being unpopular

You’ll also hear Justin’s encouragement to avoid being “siloed” in your information regarding these issues. Enjoy!
