Climate Vibe Check: Emissions Reductions During COVID with Dr. Jason Smerdon
Play • 45 min

No smog in LA. Dolphins enjoy Venice's canals. Wildlife taking over public squares. As emissions drop due to prolonged COVID-response efforts, we are seeing a significant drop in emissions. How does this compare to the reductions we need to limit the worst effects of climate change? Knowing this is temporary, how do we rebuild? Is everyone birding to stay sane, or just us? We talk about these important questions with our go-to climatologist, Dr. Jason Smerdon of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and Columbia University. Check out the episode and learn about how to respond on your next Zoom hang to the questions, "Are we the virus?"
