EP. 138 — What’s Geoengineering And Could It Possibly Help Save The World? with Dr. Shuchi Talati

Dr. Shuchi Talati is a geoengineering governance fellow at the Union of Concerned Scientists, a non-profit organization founded 50 years ago by faculty and students from MIT. Upon a chance meeting at the U.S. Capitol, she explained to Jonathan the importance of our votes when it comes to combating climate change. With so much more to discuss, she joins Jonathan to talk about how she got into her field of work, geoengineering, the effects of climate change in the weather and much more!
