In n the wake of Hurricane Michael, we thought it appropriate to revisit our show on climate and severe weather. Climate Change. It generates controversy as well as extreme weather. In this episode we talk to Josh Willis and John Morales, two atmospheric experts on the frontlines of communicating climate science. Willis won a Presidential Early Career award from Barack Obama in 2009.
A frequent contributor to Blue Dot, Josh's expertise is studying the interactions between warming oceans and melting ice. John Morales isn't just your average TV meteorologist. He is one of the few elected to be a Fellow with the American Meteorological Society and had a Ph.D. in meteorology, specializing in tropical storms. That comes in handy as the Chief Meteorologist for NBC TV's Miami affiliate. Find out what it was like to literally be responsible for people's lives during Hurricanes Irma and Maria last year.
