FM #916 - Making Sense of Climate #21 - 01/10/23
This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Ted McIntyre, Franklin resident and climate activist via the Zoom conference bridge Tuesday, January 10, 2023.
In this episode we covered the following topics:
- Happy new year, catch up
- Happenings since we last talked
- Healey, inauguration, Climate lead executive order
- Roy video (wind turbine blade testing), Roy Codcast (wind troubles)
- Fusion/ fission/ nuclear generated electrical power
This discussion continues our journey understanding the MA roadmap toward net zero and while it helps me “make sense of climate”, we hope it helps with your understanding as well.
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 conversation runs about 48 minutes. Let’s listen to my conversation with Ted
