January 7: Capitol Steps: Politics takes a holiday New Year’s Edition 2017
Put down those indictments, Robert Mueller – if you’re hoping Paul Manafort will sing like a canary, all you have to do is tune in to the Capitol Steps year-end edition of “Politics Takes a Holiday.” You might even pick up some classified secrets as he joins the Donald to sing “I’m So Indicted.”
Also featured in the Capitol Steps’ show will be the year’s biggest stars – Mike Pence, Rex Tillerson, Hillary Clinton, Vladimir Putin, Bernie Sanders, and those who were gone too soon – Sean Spicer, Tom Price, and, of course, the Mooch.
Now is your chance to finally enjoy the headlines you were too scared to read. After all, the Capitol Steps won’t tell you what to think, but they will tell you what rhymes with Papadopoulos.
About Climate One
Climate One is a program about energy, economy and the environment from Climate One at the Commonwealth Club of California. Each week listeners will get a candid discussion among climate scientists, policy makers, activists and concerned citizens, hosted by Climate One founder Greg Dalton. Climate One is changing the conversation about energy, the economy, and the environment. The issues raised by climate disruption are deeply interconnected. From water to energy, from food to transportation, the actions we take to address one issue directly impact the others.
January 14: Chaos and Progress: A Year of Climate Conversations
It’s safe to say that 2017 was not the best of times when it came to climate. Record-breaking hurricanes, year-round wildfires, and a renewed commitment to fossil fuels all contributed to a chaotic first year under the Trump administration. Yet amidst the turmoil, clean energy prices continued to fall, climate-conscious technologies continued to progress, and local and national leaders around the world reaffirmed their commitment to the 2015 Paris agreement in spite of the US withdrawal. Join us for a look back at a year of climate conversations on politics, culture, and technology.
January 21: Deep Dive into the Arctic
On the front lines of climate change, the Inuit of the high Arctic – together with scientists, educators and policymakers – are fighting a battle for their homeland against a threat that ultimately connects us all. Climate One travels to the top of the world to witness the effects of climate change and to hear from the people there how their economies, communities and culture are being affected global warming.
January 28: High Tide on Mainstreet
The coastline has been basically in the same place for all of human civilization and now that’s changing in very unpredictable and unsettling ways. Oceans will rise faster than the past but no one can say how fast that will happen or what’s the best strategy for protecting trillions of dollars in waterfront real estate. However, as John Englander aptly points out, “We don’t have to know when it’s gonna happen and we accept that with mudslides, avalanches, earthquakes and tsunamis. Yet we still design for them.”
