The fight to rethink (and reinvent) nuclear power


Published on May 17, 2017

New nuclear energy technology has come a long way – but can we get over our fears? This is the fifth episode of Climate Lab, a six-part series produced by the University of California in partnership with Vox. Hosted by Emmy-nominated conservation scientist Dr. M. Sanjayan, the videos explore the surprising elements of our lives that contribute to climate change and the groundbreaking work being done to fight back. Featuring conversations with experts, scientists, thought leaders and activists, the series takes what can seem like an overwhelming problem and breaks it down into manageable parts: from clean energy to food waste, religion to smartphones.

Cascading Climate Consequences: US Report

Paul Beckwith
Published on Nov 17, 2017

Following up on my recent videos, I chat about startling facts/observations from the recent US Climate Report. My view is climate changes are much worse than presented in this report. Soil moisture is dropping across all seasons; as is mountain range snow pack feeding rivers; number of large fires is rising. Tropical cyclones are moving northward; Cat. 4-5 are more frequent. Tornado outbreaks (-30 per day) are rising, atmospheric rivers are stronger, frost free/agricultural growing days are rising.
