This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Ted McIntyre, Franklin resident and climate activist via the Zoom conference bridge Tuesday, February 21, 2023. We were joined by the Town of Franklin Conservation Agent Breeka Li Goodlander and as you’ll hear, we had a great discussion.
In this episode we covered the following topics:
Welcome Breeka Li to episode
Breeka Li provides her "road to Franklin Conservation Agent"
Open Space & Recreation update process underway
Franklin is basically a flood plain source for the Charles River
Role of wetlands, fragility of cycle, point source, non-point source
Climate grief, Skype a scientist
The remedy for grief is to take action, to make a difference
This discussion continues our journey understanding the MA roadmap toward net zero and while it helps me “make sense of climate”, we hope it helps with your understanding as well.
If you have climate questions or Franklin specific climate questions, send them in and we’ll try to answer them in a future session.
Our recording runs about 45 minutes. Let’s listen to my conversation with Ted and Breeka Li. Audio file -> https://franklin-ma-matters.captivate.fm/episode/fm-954-making-sense-of-climate-24-02-21-23
