Climate Disruption and Culture Clash: What are Santa Cruzans not Getting About a Warming Planet and What Will it Take for them to Act?
Talk of the Bay, 5-6 PM, Tuesday, November 9th, with Chris Krohn
This week’s show takes a dive into climate change politics and perspectives. How deep will that dive be? Are your eyes already beginning to glaze over just at the mention of the “C” word? Well, this show aims to go at the climate in a different way. How can Santa Cruz County residents become pro-active and not reactive? How do we lean into the conversation about the future of our planet instead of moving away to something more entertaining? Is that it? Do we have to entertain people as we discuss and educate each other around climate change issues? Maybe. Can we have fun learning about rising sea levels, melting glaciers, and the rapid depletion of insect and animal life on earth? Is taming global warming an individual effort, or a collective one? Find out this week on Talk of the Bay.
In the first part of the show we go to Glasgow, Scotland where the “Conference of the Parties” is meeting. COP 26, started on Halloween—perhaps because climate change is pretty scary–and these meetings among the couple hundred “parties,” which are mostly countries, lasts until Nov. 12. We interview two climate activists from Climate Clock In the second part of the show we have two UC Santa Cruz Lecturers coming on to break down the meetings and discuss how they engage their students on the issues of Climate change, global disruption, and species depletion.
The fun of introspection and critical analysis starts here on KSQD 90.7 and KSQD.org…many voices, one radio station. Talk of the Bay, Tues. Nov. 9th from 5-6pm.
