.A Tale of Two Crises: What the Pandemic Teaches Us About Addressing Climate Change

Speaker: Heather Goldstone, Chief Communications Officer, Woodwell Climate Research Center via zoom


As COVID-19 hit the U.S. last March, climate scientists immediately started noticing parallels in the federal response - or lack thereof - to another crisis, climate change. A year later, those similarities have led to lessons that apply to the challenge of addressing climate change. Words matter. We have to flatten the curve. Science offers solutions. Starting now will still save lives. While we currently are not where we should or could be in curtailing either the pandemic or climate change, this understanding offers an optimistic perspective on the path forward
