Episode 6.3, January 2022: In Season 6 of CPR's Connect the Dots podcast, we’re discussing climate resiliency — that is, our ability to handle the stresses caused by climate disruption and adapt to changing conditions. In this episode, host Rob Verchick and his guests explore industry sectors and jobs that are particularly vulnerable to climate change, as well as the potential for significant job creation in technology, infrastructure, adaptation, mitigation, and the just transition to a clean, carbon-free economy. Rob is joined by Dr. Kimberley Miner, scientist and systems engineer at the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab in California; Lowell Chandler, a Montana attorney; Valerie Mueller, assistant professor in the School of Politics and Global Studies at Arizona State University; Renata Brillinger, co-founder and executive director of the California Climate and Agriculture Network; and Sean Hecht, CPR Member Scholar and Evan Frankel Professor of Policy and Practice at UCLA School of Law.
