Looking Back On A Changing Planet


Lisa Friedman and Justin Worland

Climate Reporters

The ongoing pandemic and a rocky White House transition overshadowed many other pressing events in the United States and abroad. 

Nevertheless, the threats of a changing planet persisted.

2021 included a dire report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a new round of international climate negotiations and climate-fueled fires, floods and hurricanes. 

In this episode, Host Bill Loveless sits down to recap the last year in climate and energy policy news and look ahead to 2022 with two climate reporters: Lisa Friedman from The New York Times and Justin Worland from TIME Magazine. 

Given their areas of coverage, the conversation focused on the United States.
