    Climate science and protecting the "best" planet with Dr. Kate Marvel

    Climate science and protecting the "best" planet with Dr. Kate Marvel

    This week James catches up with world-renowned climate scientist and science writer, Dr. Kate Marvel. 
    Kate is research scientist at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies and a professor at Columbia University’s Department of Applied Physics and Mathematics. 
    One of the reasons for inviting Kate on the show was to get to the bottom of how a climate model works. How can we know with any certainty what we are doing to the planet – and why are there still some things that we do not know for sure? What role do the oceans play? Why a hotter planet is more conducive to natural disasters? What are the differences between a world that experiences a 2°C temperature increase as opposed to a 5°C temperature increase?
    As always, we'd love to hear your thoughts and feedback at james.shaw@parliament.govt.nz.

    Climate, geopolitics, and trade with Jeffrey Sachs

    Kia ora!
    Welcome back for the second series of What Comes After What Comes Next, Aotearoa New Zealand's number one podcast about how we tackle the climate crisis and renew our economies in a post-pandemic world. 
    To kick off series two James catches up with "probably the most important economist in the world"* Professor Jeffrey Sachs.
    *according to the New York Times, no less.
    James chatted to Jeff about climate change, global trade, and geo-politics. So, you know, just a couple of light topics to get you into series two. Hope you enjoy it.
    For those of you who do not know him, Professor Sachs is the Director of the Centre for Sustainable Development at Columbia University and over the course of his career has served as Special Advisor to three UN Secretaries-General.  
    He has also authored some of the world’s most influential book on economics, development, and climate change, and counts President Biden and John Kerry as good friends.

    Post-pandemic recovery with Bill McKibben

    Post-pandemic recovery with Bill McKibben

    As we weather the economic storm of the COVID-19 pandemic, the climate crisis continues to loom large. We also face a biodiversity crisis and a crisis of deepening poverty.
    The good news is that all of these crises can be solved together and that is very much the message of this week's guest, Bill McKibben. And he certainly knows what he is talking about.
    In 1988, Bill wrote The End of Nature - the first book for a common audience about global warming. He also co-founded 350.org, an international climate campaign that works in 188 countries around the world, including in Aotearoa New Zealand. 
    I actually spoke to Bill in April, when Aotearoa New Zealand was in lockdown. So, whilst the day-to-day context has changed, the long-term issues we discuss are still very much with us.
    This is the final episode of series one of the podcast. We hope to be in a position to bring you series two very soon. In the meantime, enjoy this fascinating conversation with one of the world's leading environmental thinkers and activists.

    Polarisation with Ezra Klein

    Polarisation with Ezra Klein

    With the US election just around the corner, James speaks to the journalist and political commentator Ezra Klein about political polarisation and climate change.
    Ezra is the founder and editor-at-large of Vox.com, the award-winning explanatory news organisation.
    He is the host of the excellent podcast the Ezra Klein Show and recently published the book Why We’re Polarised, which draws from history, political science and psychology to carefully explain how different groups of Americans can see politics through such different lenses.
    Joe Biden said recently in his convention speech that “we can and we will deal with climate change.” I hope you find this episode helpful for understanding our current moment – what is at stake and what we can do about it.

    Climate action in the USA with former Senator Fran Pavley

    Climate action in the USA with former Senator Fran Pavley

    The US is a leader on climate change – just not where you might think.  
    Cities, states, and businesses are America’s climate innovators, deploying bottom-up solutions - and working with legislatures, city councils, and corporate boards to drive the transition to a low carbon economy.
    There is one state in particular that often comes to mind when thinking about climate action in the US, and that’s California.
    This week James talks to one of the architects of California's climate action - the former California State Senator Fran Pavley.
    Fran served 29 years in elected office including 14 years in the California Assembly and the State Senate, during which she authored some of the most significant climate policies anywhere in the US.
    This is a really interesting conversation that provides some hope about US leadership on climate change.
