The year in review

57 minutes

This episode will be the last in Season 1 of Warm Regards.

We’ve had a tremendously positive response to the podcast so far from you, our listeners, and from the larger podcast community. We’re going to be back in action this spring.

This week, we’re going to run down the four biggest climate stories of the year, as voted on by that ultimate arbiter of truth—Twitter. The stories include:

Number 4: Coral bleaching.

Number 3: Paris Accord becomes international law.

Number 2: Earth’s warmest year.

Number 1: Arctic sea ice continues to its spectacular decline.

Joining Eric, Jacquelyn and Andy this week is Kim Kobb, a climate scientist at Georgia Tech who specializes in collecting and analyzing paleoclimate information from corals, caves, and the global water cycle.
