CBS News aired the first in a series of reports on our COLDEX project at the end of December. The report features footage from Antarctica, where our team members and collaborators from other universities are searching for the oldest ice on the planet to understand the evolution and future of Earth’s climate system. We’ve been working with CBS News throughout 2023 on this project, and are so grateful to see the stories being released. Stay tuned for more in 2024.
Climate Connections—a daily podcast and radio show heard on over 700 stations nationwide—recently began airing a series of conversations recorded at our Midwest Climate Resilience Conference in Duluth this fall. The interviews are on heat pumps, rain barrels and building engineering standards—areas where Minnesotans are leading the charge in implementing climate adaptation and resilience strategies. Climate Connections also featured a conversation with MCAP Director Heidi Roop about her book, The Climate Action Handbook.
