Code red. It’s nearly unheard of for scientists to use such startling language, but the latest report on global warming by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change sounded just such a bold alarm. How do each of us process the report's dark warnings, and what do we do now? In this episode of Speaking of Resilience, host Kate Madigan invites Jennifer HaverKamp, Graham Family Director, University of Michigan Graham Institute for Sustainability, and international climate leader, to share thoughts and help us chart a way forward. With a warm and insightful balance, she doesn’t shy from the report's stark assessment, but also offers areas where she sees hope and suggests ways people can take action to speed our transition to a sustainable society. Jennifer Haverkamp's distinguished environmental career includes leading the 2016 U.S. climate negotiators to a successful international agreement under the Montreal Protocol to decrease global use of hydrofluorocarbons, a potent greenhouse gas.
