Ep. 200: Wildfires & Hurricanes ft. Dharna Noor

Maui's wildfires and Hurricane Hilary heading toward southern California illustrate our worsening climate crisis.

Dharna Noor, climate reporter for The Guardian, joins us for our 200th episode. We discuss the wildfires in Maui, the ludicrous conspiracies about their origin, big oil rebutting attempts by local leaders over the past few years to reign in their emissions, and more.

We also spend some time talking about Hurricane Hilary, which is expected to make landfall in Southern California this weekend. Calling it a rare occurrence is an understatement. It’s once-in-a-century, with the last one making landfall happening back in 1939. We examine the link between climate change and extreme weather like this storm which, as we’ve mentioned repeatedly on this show, is a direct cause of climate change worsening.

In spite of this, we make sure to reflect on the importance of remaining committed to fight climate change and lift up the young climate activists in Montana who recently won a landmark climate case.
