This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Ted McIntyre, Franklin resident and climate activist. We are also joined by Marissa B, from the 350 MA Franklin Node group. We recorded this via the Zoom conference bridge Apr 27, 2022.
Ted helps me “make sense of climate” and we hope this helps with your understanding as well. Marissa joined Ted and I for this session.
If you have climate questions or Franklin specific climate questions, send them in and we’ll try to answer them in a future session
The recording runs about 45 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Marissa and Ted McIntyre as he helps us “make sense of climate” regarding transportation in a climate ready Franklin.
