    12 - Katharine Hayhoe, TNC Chief Scientist

    12 - Katharine Hayhoe, TNC Chief Scientist

    Dr. Katharine Hayhoe is a towering figure in the world of climate science. Her work changed our ability to develop climate change solutions and expanded the public’s understanding of the effects of climate change. She recently accepted an offer to be the next Chief Scientist for The Nature Conservancy. And today, June 1, is actually her first day on the new job. 

    We met with her a few weeks ago, virtually, to talk about her plans with TNC, about how researchers can better communicate climate change action, and where she sees humanity in this moment it its progress on tackling climate change.

    This is our longest episode yet, but it’s worth listening to, because we had a lot to talk about and she had a lot to say.

    Hosted by Dr. Toni Klemm (www.toni-klemm.de).

    11 - Julian Reyes, AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow

    Collaboration between science and policy is essential to create meaningful legislation and international agreements on climate change and other important issues. We talked to Dr. Julian Reyes, climate scientist and AAAS STP Fellow at the U.S. State Department, about his current work, his career path, and why it is important to have scientists at the policy table.

    10 - Native American Perspectives on Climate Change Adaptation

    10 - Native American Perspectives on Climate Change Adaptation

    Native American Tribes have lived in North America for thousands of years, navigating various climates to support their livelihoods. Yet, their expertise is often left out of the conversation around climate change adaptation. The USGS Climate Adaptation Science Center (CASC) network have established close partnerships with Native Tribes, to produce actionable science for resource managers and to provide research and training opportunities for Tribal university students to integrate traditional knowledge and scientific research.
    Adrienne Wootten, postdoc at the South Central CASC, talked to three Tribal undergraduate students working at the center: Peyton Cavnar (Apache and Comanche) and Matthew Armor (Chickasaw), students at the University of Oklahoma, and Kieren Daley Laursen (Chickasaw) at Colorado State University.

    09 - Dilshanie Perera, postdoc in climate and inequality at the NYC Climate Museum

    We’ve all visited museums. We know what art museums and history museums look like. But what does a museum look like that focuses on climate and climate change? What exactly does it do, and who works there? To answer these questions, we chatted with Dr. Dilshanie Perera, who in September joined the New York City Climate Museum as postdoctoral fellow in climate and inequality.

    08 - Joseph Trujillo, Hispanic weather risk communication researcher

    Spoken in 11 percent of all U.S. households, Spanish is the second-most common language in the U.S. behind English. But when it comes to communicating the risks and dangers of tornadoes, hurricanes, or other severe weather events, meteorologists around the country use terms as they see fit, without knowing if their diverse audiences understand them and act appropriately. Joseph Trujillo, a Peruvian master student at the University of Oklahoma, is trying to change that. Using his expertise in Spanish, meteorology, and weather broadcasting, he is developing a unified set of weather terms in Spanish, and he is developing trainings for professional broadcast meteorologists to use them.

    07 - Phil Clifford, co-director of AAAS myIDP

    Seven in ten researchers and engineers in the U.S. work in the the business sector, and only two in ten stay at universities. But many college graduates and postdocs aim primarily for tenure-track careers in academia. At the same time, many graduates and postdocs lack key soft skills, like communication, team work, or leadership, which are essential for working in the commercial, non-profit, or government sector.
    We sat down with Dr. Phil Clifford, a professor and associate dean in medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and co-lead of myIDP, a AAAS initiative to provide early career researchers with guidance for acquiring soft skills and identifying careers that suit them. In light of COVID-19 and hiring freezes at many universities and businesses, we also talked about how the job market changed, who is most impacted, and how we can improve our chances for jobs that are still available.
