Dr. Friederike Otto on making sense of extreme weather
How do we explain and unpack extreme weather events? Spencer Bailey and Andrew Zuckerman, The Slowdown's co-founders and this podcast's hosts, discuss the COVID-19 crisis featuring long-view conversations with philosophers, psychologists, writers, artists, and other leading minds. Physicist and climate researcher Dr. Friederike Otto, author of the new book “Angry Weather: Heat Waves, Floods, Storms, and the New Science of Climate Change,” speaks with us about the nuances of understanding real-time weather data, why climate change is a social issue, and how suing fossil fuel companies can help change their business models, regardless of the legal outcome.
