Welcome back to Wake Up with Curio! We're really excited to bring you our revamped show. Every morning journalist Paula Akpan will help you go beyond catchy headlines, and get valuable insights on a recent story from two angles, followed by a helpful life hack to keep the positivity flowing. In today's episode... The poles are melting, forests are burning, and 150 species are being lost daily due to human activity. We’ve known about the consequences of our carbon footprint for decades, so why have we let it reach this critical stage? This morning, discover the effects of the climate crisis and the steps we’re taking to preserve our planet, including using bioacoustics to listen to nature. Then get motivated for the day with three facts you may not know about sound. You can listen to "The 1977 White House climate memo that should have changed the world" from The Guardian and "To fight the climate crisis, we have to listen to nature" from gal-dem on Curio; just search for them on the app.
