Upcoming Interviews and Climate Crisis-Related Writing (January 25th)

On February 8th I'll I'll discuss with Georgetown Professor Toshihiro Higuchi his work, "Political Fallout, Nuclear Weapons Testing and the Making of a Global Environmental Crisis."   Though the Manhattan Project ended 75 years ago everyone alive today has been exposed to the radiation substances the project produced.      

On February 15th I'll speak with BYU Professor Julianne Holt-Lunstad about the health effects of social isolation.  See her recent perspective essay in the NEJM, at: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp2208029.

My interview with University of Exeter Professor Kelly Thornber about mitigating the pharmaceutical industry's damage to the environment has been postponed until the spring.  Listeners will recall a related piece I published in STAT last June.   

Concerning the climate crisis, last week I submitted a seven-page comment letter in response to an EPA RFI that solicited public comments for related education, technical assistance and partnerships to lower carbon emissions and to improve corporate public reporting of GHG emissions and plans to reduce emissions.   Go to: https://www.regulations.gov/docket/EPA-HQ-OAR-2022-0878 and search for my name under "Browse All Comments."
