How do we talk about climate change?

39 minutes

For those of us who think about climate change often -- like unhealthily often -- there's sometimes a sense that you're missing the story. Climate change is quite possibly the biggest story of all time. But it can feel remote, abstract, and lost in a sea of statistics.

There's no way to do this story justice in just a few hundred words on a blog post. That's why we made Warm Regards.

In this inaugural episode of Warm Regards, we'll tackle what it means to talk about climate change at this unique moment in human history.

Warm Regards is hosted by Slate Magazine's Eric Holthaus, a self-professed weather and climate geek who Rolling Stone once called "the rebel nerd of meteorology."

Co-hosting is Andy Revkin, veteran environment reporter for the New York Times who has covered climate change from all angles for 30 years, and Jacquelyn Gill, a paleoecologist at the University of Maine who is an actual, real-life climate scientist who flawlessly navigates social media.

Together, they're opening a window into the world of people devoted to finding out what matters most about climate change.
