It’s been a long week and a half. We’re still processing everything that’s happening, just like all of you. We might never understand it, but it’s clear the consequences for the climate are immediate and have already begun.
This week’s episode will be a little bit different. We’ve recorded three separate interviews with leaders on the environment, and asked them what they’re doing in response to the election results. We’ve also asked them what we can do.
Our first interview is with Jeff Hayward, who is vice president of landscapes and livelihoods for the Rainforest Alliance. He spoke to us from Marrakech, Morocco where he is attending COP 22.
Our second interview is with Katherine Crocker, an evolutionary ecologist at the University of Michigan and a member of the Kaw Nation. Days after the election, she travelled to support the water protectors of the Standing Rock Sioux in North Dakota.

Our final interview is with Renee Lertzman, who works to understand the psychology of how we deal with environmental issues. Her words are especially useful in this time of shared anxiety and concern and uncertainty.
