It’s hard to avoid the topic of climate change. Every day we hear about new impacts and discoveries on the news, and even sometimes witness impacts directly. If you’ve ever wondered what climate change will mean for Newfoundland and Labrador then you’re in the right place.

The NL Climate Podcast will host interviews with experts and problem solvers dealing with the issue of climate change in our province; from those working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, to those helping communities prepare for the impacts of factors like sea level rise and changing weather.

The podcast is your resource for getting more information on these pressing topics so, if you haven’t had a chance to follow it yet, you can do so at the bottom of the home page.

This podcast is also a distance-education class project for Foundations of Digital Communications Strategy & Social Media (University of Toronto).

In my spare time I occasionally write music (sometimes for podcasts like this one).
