S2E2: Climate Change in the U.S. After Superstorm Sandy, Part II

Dr. Jim Salinger, New Zealand climate scientist, IPCC author, and recent visiting professor at Stanford talks about how a changing climate contributes to both increased severity and frequency of extreme weather events such as Superstorm Sandy. Matt Chalmers, a JD student at UC Davis joins us live over the phone to discuss how the inertia of U.S. government effectively hinders the timely development of policies for climate change mitigation, and whether technological progress and economic growth can solve the problem they took part in creating.

As always, we also highlight the latest energy related news and present insightful comments and questions from our team members here at Green Grid Radio. Hosted by Sophia Vo, Adam Pearson, Erik Olesund, Kara Fong, Darren Handoko and Mallory Smith.
