Many of the podcasts feature authors such as actor Alan Alda on his book Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself, humorist P. J. O'Rourke on his book On the Wealth of Nations, and author Barbara Ehrenreich talking about her book Dancing in the Streets: A History of Collective Joy. You'll also find speeches from political figures such as presidential hopefuls John Edwards, Dennis Kucinich, and Bill Richardson.


This forum also features panel discussions on a variety of topics such as the Summer of Love, America's Budget Crisis, Religion in U.S. Culture and Society, Moving Forward in Iraq, Capitalism 3.0, The Politics Of Food, Health of Africa, and Digital Health. And now they're podcasting these speeches which include: Katie Couric on cancer, Dianne Feinstein on global warming, Sister Helen Prejean on the death penalty, Gov. Schwarzenegger on China, Rita Moreno on race, Dan Rather on the media, and many more. Scroll down the list of their podcasts and you're sure to find something that interests you.

Amory Lovins: Peak Car Ownership

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Fri, May 12, 2017


Amory Lovins, Cofounder and Chief Scientist, Rocky Mountain Institute
Emily Castor, Director of Transportation Policy, Lyft
Gerry Tierney, Associate Principal, Perkins + Will

Will the rapid arrival of robotic cars lead to the blissful end of traffic? Or will autonomous cars merely put drivers out of work and clog our streets more than ever before? No one knows for sure if the utopian vision or the dystopian vision will arrive at your front door. What is clear is that the convergence of automobiles and information technology promises one of the biggest industrial and cultural disruptions we have ever seen. It is also happening faster than even the most rabid boosters expected. Will that upheaval help or hurt the need to move away from oil and other fossil fuels to protect the climate that supports our economy?

Join us for a conversation about the electrified revolution in personal mobility.

C1 REVUE: CAN OUR CONNECTED LIVES BE GREEN AND SAFE?

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Fri, Apr 14, 2017


California has committed to getting one-half of its electricity from renewable sources by the year 2030. But clean energy advocates say the state could be more ambitious and shoot for 100% clean electricity. Still, not everyone agrees on how the existing energy grid can integrate new technologies, or whether getting to 100% is even technically possible yet. On today's program, we hear how smart technology and the "Internet of things" can be part of the solution, while making our lives greener, safer, and more convenient.

Youth in the Streets and in the Courts

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Thu, Mar 30, 2017


James Coleman, Senior, South San Francisco High School; Alliance for Climate Education Action Fellow
Lou Helmuth, Deputy Director, Our Children's Trust

President Trump’s bold dismissal of climate change as a legitimate concern is energizing a new generation of teenage activists. Some are marching in the streets. Others are taking the federal and state governments to court, attempting to apply an ancient legal doctrine to the climate fight. It’s a longshot move that has been inching its way through U.S. courts for years and is now moving forward in Oregon.

Digital natives are known for short attention spans and thinking that being a “clicktivist” qualifies as civic engagement. Do teenagers have a chance to be heard and make an impact on an issue so complex and massive as the world’s energy system? How are young advocates using social media to advance their cause? Join us for a conversation about kids confronting powerful institutions and finding their own power and voices.

C1 Revue: Republican Renegades on Climate

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Tue, Feb 28, 2017


The Trump administration has moved quickly to reverse some of the previous administration’s energy and climate policies. But not all Republicans are on the same page when it comes to climate. Those on the so-called eco-right say action is needed to promote clean energy and prevent climate disruption. On today’s program we hear how Republican renegades find climate solutions in conservative principles, and what we can do when climate denial isn’t just present in the halls of government, but actually controls the levers of power.

Doubt, Deny or Defend: Republicans on Climate Change

Jeremy Carl, Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University
John Hofmeister, Former President, Shell Oil Company; Chairman, Erin Energy Corp.
Bob Inglis, Executive Director, RepublicEn; Former U.S. Representative (R-SC)


President Donald Trump is giving plum jobs to Republicans who deny or downplay the risks of climate disruption. That's a big shift from the time of President George W. Bush, when U.S. Senators John McCain and Lindsay Graham pursued climate-fixing legislation.

Bob Inglis, a former Republican representative and executive director of RepublicEn, says Republicans should not doubt or deny the science. Rather, they should defend it because their party has the best solutions, ones based on markets and not mandates. He will be joined by John Hofmeister, former president of Shell Oil Company, and Jeremy Carl, a research fellow from the Hoover Institute at Stanford for a vibrant discussion about the tensions and challenges between climate science, America's energy needs and the Republican party in the coming years.

C1 Revue: The Future of Oil and Nuclear Power

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Tue, Jan 31, 2017


In 2006, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger launched California's attack on climate change by signing a pioneering law to reduce carbon pollution across the state’s economy. That law, known as AB 32, has put California at the forefront of the global move to protect the climate that supports our economy and lifestyles. More recently, California’s energy utility announced plans to close the state's last remaining nuclear power plant. But will such a move reduce or increase carbon pollution? On today’s program we explore the future of oil and nuclear power through the lens of California’s fight against climate disruption.

Is Climate Denial Destroying Our Planet?

Thu, Jan 12, 2017


Michael Mann, Distinguished Professor of Meteorology, Penn State University
Cristine Russell, Freelance Science Journalist
Tom Toles, Editorial Cartoonist, The Washington Post

The Paris Climate Agreement has been ratified by 76 countries, representing nearly 60% percent of the world’s emissions, and will enter into force on November 4 of this year. So we all agree, climate change is the biggest problem humankind has ever faced? Not so fast.

Here in the U.S., denial and confusion about the science is rampant, and we may be the only developed nation where it is written into a major political party’s platform. Climate scientist Michael Mann and Pulitzer-Prize winning cartoonist Tom Toles take a satirical look at how this lack of consensus came to be. Christine Russell is a veteran science journalist with deep knowledge about conveying complex scientific issues to a broad public. How deep does climate doubt run, and how can communication help us move on to solutions? Join us for a fun and informative look at manufactured doubt and genuine skepticism.

Climate One presents Naomi Oreskes the 6th Annual Stephen Schneider Award for Outstanding Climate Science Communication. According to Schneider Award juror, Ben Santer, “Her 2004 Science paper helped to quantify, for the first time, the broad scientific consensus on climate change. Her recent research unmasked the forces behind denial of human effects on climate and improved our chances of having a responsible, science-based discussion of climate change solutions."

Politcal and Climate Disruption

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Tue, Jan 03, 2017


2016 began in the afterglow of the Paris climate accord, and ended with the triumph of a presidential candidate who has labeled climate change a hoax. So what will 2017 and the Trump administration mean for the future of clean energy? On today’s show we look ahead at how environmentally-conscious lawmakers and businesses might move forward now that Republicans control the White House and both chambers of Congress, and how big blue California might continue to lead the fight against climate change in spite of what happens in Washington.

Dava Sobel , Former Science Reporter, The New York Times; Author, The Glass Universe: How the Ladies of the Harvard Observatory Took the Measure of the Stars
Becky Worley, Tech Contributor, "Good Morning America"—Moderator

This program is part of our Good Lit series, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.

Dava Sobel argues that in the 19th century, it was women and not male astronomers who actually made some of the great discoveries of the universe. In the mid-19th century, the Harvard College Observatory began employing women as calculators, or “human computers,” to interpret the observations made via telescope by their male counterparts each night. At the outset, this group included the wives, sisters and daughters of the resident astronomers, but by the 1880s the female corps included graduates of the new women's colleges—Vassar, Wellesley and Smith. As photography transformed the practice of astronomy, the ladies turned to studying the stars captured nightly on glass photographic plates. The “glass universe” of a half-million plates that Harvard amassed in this period—thanks in part to the early financial support of another woman, Anna Draper, whose late husband pioneered the technique of stellar photography—enabled the women to make extraordinary discoveries that attracted worldwide acclaim.

Come hear this captivating, little-known true story of a group of women whose remarkable contributions to the burgeoning field of astronomy forever changed our understanding of the stars and our place in the universe. Sobel is a noted author, and in addition to her work for The New York Times she has been a longtime science contributor to Harvard Magazine, Audubon, Discover, Life, Omni, and The New Yorker.

David Baker, Energy Reporter, San Francisco Chronicle

Top energy stories this year range from speedy ratification of the Paris climate deal to the large number of reservations for Tesla’s mid-priced sedan. Recent headlines also include PG&E’s surprise announcement that it will close the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant and the surprise bankruptcy of SunEdison, once a darling of the solar industry. We’ll take stock of a year in which oil prices stayed low, autonomous cars sped ahead, and the first offshore wind farm in the United States was poised to come online.

On the policy front, California extended its main climate law with the passage of SB 32, but clean energy is playing defense in many states around the country. Would you fly in a battery-powered helicopter or a solar-powered plane? Brave souls did just that this year.

Join us for a look back at an active year in technology, innovation, policy and the battle over how to power our future.

Can Republicans and Democrats come together after a nasty election to make progress on energy, water, transportation and other climate-related concerns? Those issues were barely a sideshow in the 2016 national election, but climate disruption requires modifying how we run our economy and get around. Is it naive to think elected leaders can bury the hatchet and find common ground in the state legislature or the U.S. Congress? Where are the opportunities for political deals?

Join a conversation about licking wounds, moving forward and getting to work on important systems that need fixing.

C1 Revue: Climate Change On Your Kitchen Table

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Fri, Dec 02, 2016


Climate change is as much about what we eat as what we drive or where we live. Rising heat is hitting chocolate, wine, beer, bread and other foods we love, while our appetites for meat, fish, and dairy are responsible for a host of unsustainable farming practices. So what’s a climate-conscious eater to do? On today’s program we'll look at how climate change affects us at the kitchen table. We’ll ask whether all those craft beers, fair-trade coffees, and single-batch chocolates are part of the solution, or whether going vegan is the key to a climate-friendly diet.

While many people concerned about climate disruption have changed their car and their diet, few have changed their flying habits. The greenhouse gas emissions from air travel often blows away all the carbon savings from other lifestyle changes. That could be about to change. The airline industry has agreed to an international deal to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. What new fuels and technologies will make that possible? Can we really look forward to guilt-free flying in the foreseeable future? A conversation about cleaning up the skies and the possibility of going to see grandma on a jet powered by food scraps and old tree branches.

Janet Napolitano Interviews Uri Bar-Joseph on Spycraft

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Tue, Nov 22, 2016


Janet Napolitano, President, University of California; Former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security; Former Governor, Arizona

Uri Bar-Joseph, Professor of Political Science, University of Haifa, Israel; Author, The Angel: The Egyptian Spy Who Saved Israel

The program is part of our Good Lit series, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.

The mystery of the death of Ashraf Marwan remains unsolved more than nine years after he plunged to his death from the balcony of his fifth-floor London apartment. But, drawing on once-secret archives and interviews with Israeli intelligence officers, University of Haifa Professor Uri Bar-Joseph has stitched together a riveting story about an Egyptian who betrayed his homeland as a spy for Israel. Bar-Joseph writes that intelligence provided by Marwan at the outset of the 1973 Yom Kippur War helped prevent the fall of the Golan Heights.

University of California President Janet Napolitano will interview Bar-Joseph about his book, the vagaries of intelligence interpretation, and the advantages and disadvantages of human spies vs. electronic espionage. This conversation will be the third in a series of interviews of authors by the former Secretary of Homeland Security.

Dale E. Bredesen, M.D., Augustus Rose Professor of Neurology, Department of Neurology, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA; Founding President, Buck Institute for Research on Aging

Alzheimer’s disease is a major global problem and now one of the leading causes of death in the United States. We have recently seen the publication of the first examples of the reversal of cognitive decline in early Alzheimer’s disease and its precursors, mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and subjective cognitive impairment (SCI). The successful protocol is a personalized, multi-modal approach that involves subtyping of Alzheimer’s and addressing dozens of factors that contribute to cognitive decline.

Melissa Caen, Political Analyst, CBS San Francisco

Jennifer Granholm, Former Governor, Michigan; Co-chair, Clinton Presidential Transition Team

On November 8, the country elected Donald Trump as its 45th president. The insurgent campaign by the New York businessman surprised everyone—Democrats, the media, and even his own party. Many people especially here in the Bay Area have been shocked by the results and have been expressing a mixture of uncertainty and even fear about what comes next.

What does this mean for immigrants?
Will Muslims face increased discrimination?
How will this affect the United States’ international allies?
Will the economy benefit or suffer under the new administration?
How will President-elect Trump's legal troubles affect his ability to carry out his job?
Will Obamacare be overturned?

Come share your thoughts with each other and our panelists, and ask them questions about what happens next. This is your opportunity to share your hopes and fears about the new Trump era.

This program was recorded in front of a live audience at The Commonwealth Club of California on October 18, 2016.

The industrialization of food has caused much of the food we eat to taste the same, whether you are nibbling at a farmer’s market in San Francisco, a Midwestern barbecue or a fast food joint in China. Ninety-five percent of the world’s calories now come from only 30 species, and Simran Sethi says a closer look at America’s cornucopia of grocery store options shows that our foods are primarily made up of only corn, wheat, rice, palm oil and soybeans. Sethi traveled to six continents in search of delicious and endangered tastes and how we can save the foods we love.

Egon Schiele: A Feminist Artist Ahead of His Time

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Fri, Nov 04, 2016


Kerrin Meis, Retired Lecturer, SFSU; Teacher, OLLI Berkeley and OLLI San Rafael

Egon Schiele, artistically active in Vienna during the last days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, adored women, and was influenced by the fin-de-si?cle preoccupation with sex. The Viennese artist was excited by Sigmund Freud's 1905 Theories of Sexuality, Gustav Mahler’s suggestive music, and Gustav Klimt's gorgeous images of desire. Schiele was even more audacious in his nudes and his explorations of self in his self-portraits, in his landscapes of the small village where he had retreated from Vienna (and was imprisoned for his erotic art) and in his deeply perceptive portraits. His many masterpieces explore the mysteries of love and death.

C1 Revue: Surviving a Megadrought

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Tue, Nov 01, 2016


After last winter’s rains, Californians breathed a collective sigh of relief. But short-term weather is not the same as long-term climate. And state water watchers understand that this rainfall did not break the worst drought in over a thousand years. With the effects of climate change being felt around the country – droughts in some areas and flooding in others – the nation is looking to California as a model for how to handle a new normal. Today we’ll dig into the water woes of this bellwether state. How is California planning for a hotter, drier climate in the cities and down on the farm?

Climate disruption and the California drought have been mocked or marginalized in the national political debate. Are Republicans and Democrats in California similarly divided? Where can they agree on water, energy, agriculture and other issues related to the changing climate? Climate impacts such as massive forest fires, rising tides, and severe storms are hitting the state today. Governor Jerry Brown is trying to extend the state’s main climate law, AB 32. Is that going to happen? A conversation about power and politics at the state and regional level in this wild election year.

Mon, Oct 17, 2016


Today, we’re going to extreme ends of climate change debate... and action. While most of us are still comfortable sitting in the center – perhaps accepting the science, but not doing much about it – there are some organizations and individuals who are willing to jump off a bridge to convince us of the peril we face. And there are others who are using misinformation and deception to try to sow doubt in our minds about whether there is any problem at all.

Fossil fuels have lifted nations into the modern era, bringing wealth and well being to many. But as we turn away from these carbon intensive energy sources, will the promise of jobs and prosperity from a clean energy society, be fulfilled? Or will the gulf between the haves and have-nots simply widen? And how will we protect everyone from the health impacts of a hot world?

Can California Get to 100-percent Clean Power?

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Fri, Sep 16, 2016


Mark Ferron, Former Commissioner, California Public Utilities Commission
Mark Jacobson, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Stanford University
Steve Malnight, Senior Vice President, PG&E

Mark Jacboson leads a team that says California and other states can get to 100-percent renewable power by 2050. Celebrity activists Mark Ruffalo and Leonardo DiCaprio are backing him.

But critics say the theoretical plan doesn’t consider the hard realities of the power grid and that renewables are sometimes oversold. California recently passed a law requiring half of the state’s power be renewable by 2030.

Should the state be more ambitious to battle climate disruption? What does PG&E think about going all-in on renewable power?

On June 21st, in unison with labor and environmental groups, PG&E announced that it will be closing Diablo Canyon Power Plant by 2025. The press release cited California’s evolving energy policy which will be significantly reducing the need for electricity produced by the last remaining nuclear plant in the state. However, despite the support of environmental groups such as Friends of the Earth and the NRDC, there are many who claim more GHGs–rather then less–will be released from the closing, questioning where the energy will come from to replace the nearly 18,000 GWh produced at Diablo Canyon.

Will closing the Diablo Canyon Power Plant raise or lower California’s carbon pollution? Is it a deal with the devil or bold leadership?

Getting Baked: Can Legalizing Marijuana Help Fight Climate Change?

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Fri, Jul 22, 2016


Scott Greaten, Executive Director, Friends of the Eel River
Michael Sutton, Former President, California Fish & Game Commission

Growing pot indoors consumes large amounts of water and energy. Growing illegal weed outdoors often involves trespassing on national or state parks. Runoff from cannabis farms pollute streams and ecosystems. Could legalizing marijuana in California result in more efficient harvesting that uses less water and results in less environmental destruction?

California voters will have a chance to weigh in on legalizing marijuana on the November ballot.

Join us for a conversation about the climate, energy and water impacts of changing the way one of the state’s biggest crops is produced.

Can the Pacific Coast Lead the Transition to a Clean Economy?

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Sat, Jun 25, 2016


Can California and other west coast economies accelerate the global transition to clean energy technologies? The chief executives of Pacific coast states and provinces say policies pushing clean power have boosted their economies and created jobs. Companies involved in solar power and electric vehicles agree. But the some business groups say going green can hit consumers in the pocket book and hamper the economy.

What can the West Coast of Canada and the United States do to advance the goals countries and corporations outlined at the Paris climate summit last year? Oregon Governor Kate Brown, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, and Mary Polak, Environment Minister of British Columbia, join Climate One for a conversation on a clean energy economy.

Lord Nicholas Stern and Steve Westly on the Economics of Dropping Fossil Fuels

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Fri, Jun 10, 2016


Carbon pollution has recently dropped despite continued growth of the global economy. Supporters of clean energy cheered that news, and say it demonstrates that combatting climate change can be accomplished without massive economic pain. Was the decoupling of economic growth and carbon pollution just because of China’s slowing economy and temporary dip in coal use? What areas of the clean economy are most promising for investors and job-seekers?

Today's EV Market

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Tue, Jun 07, 2016


About five years after “real” electric vehicles became widely available, about 22 models are on the market and 400,000 cars with plugs cruising American roads. EVs are fast, fun and clean. Some run on electricity only, others run on electricity and then switch to gasoline when the batteries run out. Prices are coming down, driving range is expanding and the prospect of $35,000 pure-electric cars from Chevrolet and Tesla could bring EVs within reach of average families.

In addition to being clean and fun, EVs are more suitable for AD (autonomous driving) vehicles than those with combustible engines. Therefore, the rise of EV technology furthers AD technology, and vice versa. It is the making of a very exciting time for innovation and disruption in the car industry.

Cigarettes & Tailpipes: Tales of Two Industries

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Tue, Jun 07, 2016


Oil companies have long used a page from tobacco companies playbook by vigorously denying evidence that using their product as directed causes societal harm. Now the tobacco and oil narratives are getting closer following news stories that ExxonMobil executives for decades suppressed internal reports about the negative impacts of burning fossil fuels.

A former U.S. Department of Justice lawyer who won a huge racketeering case against tobacco companies says the federal government should investigate whether oil companies colluded to bury evidence of human-caused climate disruption. It’s easy to blame energy suppliers and that may be the right thing to do. But don’t individuals also share responsibility for driving and flying around knowing that we are emitting climate-killing gases? Aren’t we also culpable?

A conversation on how oil might be the new tobacco.

Handling Your Feelings About Climate Change

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Tue, Jun 07, 2016


Climate change has joined sex, politics, and religion as a topic not to raise in polite company. But don’t blame deniers or oil companies for the socially constructed silence. People who are aware of the need to build a cleaner economy struggle with how to talk about it without turning off their friends and colleagues. As a result, climate conscious people are not talking about it, or taking as much personal action, as they know they should. Many are suffering from pre-traumatic stress worrying about carbon-driven storms and upheaval headed our way, according to a recent Esquire article. What can we learn about how to handle feelings of fear and despair as well as powerlessness and motivation? A conversation with experts on emotional intelligence, psychology, and mindfulness.

Fighting Fossil Fuels All the Way to Prison

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Wed, May 18, 2016


In 2008 Tim Dechristopher heard Stanford professor Terry Root deliver a chilling lecture on the irreversible impacts of climate change. After her talk, Terry put her hand on Tim’s shoulder and said, “I am so sorry, but my generation failed yours.” Those words haunted Tim, and put him on a path to climate activism. He later infiltrated an auction for oil and gas leases on public lands in Utah near Canyonlands National Park. Once inside he was able to bid and actually won several auctions. When organizers realized he had no intention to pay, he was prosecuted and sent to prison for two years. He was released in 2013 and is on a three-year probation. Before his release, he was accepted to Harvard Divinity School where he is studying justice movements.

Georgia Hirsty and other activists recently hung off a Portland bridge on ropes to protest an oil rig bound for the Arctic. Former Mobil Oil Executive VP Lou Alstadt said recently that such protests “upped the ante” on Shell’s decision to pull the plug on drilling in the Arctic.

Brendon Steele believes working collaboratively on the inside of companies is a better way to influence their behavior than confrontation and villainization. Future 500 works closely with energy corporations to encourage more sustainable business practices.

Is it more effective to work quietly on the inside of corporations or bang loudly on the outside? A discussion of what lessons climate activists can learn from history and where carbon advocacy is headed.

Climate Equity

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Tue, May 17, 2016


Will a green economy be more equitable than the brown economy? As California transitions to renewable energy, the result will be green jobs, cleaner communities and lower carbon emissions. But will underserved communities get shafted again? The environmental justice community has been concerned that the state’s cap and trade program puts Brazilian rainforests over communities near refineries and factories.

Cowspiracy: Revelation or Cheap Trick?

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Mon, May 16, 2016


Are environmentalists afraid of stepping in cow dung? The documentary film Cowspiracy contends that large environmental groups are turning a blind eye to the harmful effects cattle have on ecosystems and human health. Environmentalists bristle at the charge and point to work promoting vegan and vegetarian diets and campaigns against factory farms and other excesses of the animal agriculture industry. The film, which was backed by Leonardo DiCaprio, presents “a sensationalist conspiracy where none exists,” according to Greenpeace executive Robin Oakley.

However, a growing number of environmentalists are praising cows and claim they can be climate healers rather than the villains they are often made out to be. They contend that a cow’s methane-rich burps can be offset if cattle grazing patterns are carefully managed. The result, they say, can be pretty landscapes and healthy soil that stores both carbon and water. Is that just spin from cattle ranchers? Does Cowspiracy use green groups as a foil to make a sensational film to generate buzz? A conversation about the future of an American icon in the age of climate disruption.

The Health Hazards of One Degree

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Mon, May 16, 2016


The reframing of cigarette smoke as a public health issue was a turning point in the tobacco wars. Can the same happen with climate change? Rising temperatures are implicated in recent health risks from the Zika virus to the algae blooms creating toxic soup in the Great Lakes and Pacific Ocean. Outdoor workers and poor people are especially at risk from severe heat, mosquitoes and illnesses that thrive in warmer conditions.

Already, the atmosphere has warmed about one degree celsius from pre-industrial times. That doesn’t sound like much but one degree can have a big impact on the planet and people. And we are on a path to temperature increases of at least two degrees.

What is the outlook for public health in a warming world? Is California and the Bay Area prepared to deal with the medical impacts of a hot and crowded world?

Join us for a conversation about how burning fossil fuels could impact your personal well being and what you can do to protect yourself."

Earth Day with Climate One: Learning Green

Author: Commonwealth Club of California
Fri, May 13, 2016


We will discuss how doctors, teachers and parents are framing climate change as a children’s issue. The American Academy of Pediatrics issued a statement saying children’s health will be disproportionately affected by climate. The California Parent-Teacher Association is raising its voice about carbon risk and the Boy Scouts are teaching kids about sustainability. We’ll explore how educators and students increasingly are making climate a youth issue.
