The world of climate and energy research offers a vast array of possibilities. At Climate Monitor, we recognize a nation that ignores science can fade. We can't let that happen. While so much attention is focused on the effects and threats of climate change and sea level rise, there is little emphasis on what researchers are discovering and proactively doing to face the challenges of our shared warming emergency.

The purpose of this episode is to inform podcast listeners about exciting efforts to understand and deal with the greatest challenges of our time.
