Welcome to Third Eye Weekly. On this podcast we try and answer the big questions with intimate, personal narratives that give insight into the human experience that others might over-look.
Today’s podcast is about our climate. We are looking at various perspectives into understanding our planet’s climate. The debate on whether human behavior is contributing to warming temperatures of provides us with interesting questions into expertise, perspective and behavioral awareness.
Our big question today is: How truly anthropogenic are the fluctuations of our planet’s atmospheric temperatures?
We’ll talk with Dr. Kerry Emanuel, a professor of atmospheric science at MIT who researches the effect warming temperatures have on hurricanes and other types of severe weather.
We’ll also chat with Ken Johnson, vice president of communications at Solar Energy Industries Association, the power company behind the research, manufacture and construction of solar projects both domestically and abroad.
Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with the Pieris Project. It’s a citizen science project designed to study the world’s biodiversity through the collection of the cabbage white butterfly (Pieris rapae) throughout the world.
Be sure to check us out as we take our questions for Climate Week to the streets!
You can also check out a video of our interview with the members of the Pieris Project.
