Sea Change Radio

Since 1973, the Tyler Prize for Envi­ron­men­tal Achieve­ment has been bestowed upon peo­ple who have made a sig­nif­i­cant impact in the fight for a sus­tain­able plan­et. Last week on Sea Change Radio, we spoke with not­ed activist cli­mate sci­en­tist Michael Mann, who was one of two recip­i­ents of this year’s Tyler Prize. This week, we are hon­ored to speak with the oth­er Tyler Prize Lau­re­ate, War­ren Wash­ing­ton, to learn about the begin­nings of his ground­break­ing career as an atmos­pher­ic sci­en­tist. Dr. Wash­ing­ton was the sec­ond African Amer­i­can to receive a PhD in mete­o­rol­o­gy. He’s a for­mer chair of the Nation­al Sci­ence Board, and cur­rent­ly a senior sci­en­tist at the Nation­al Cen­ter for Atmos­pher­ic Research in Boul­der, Col­orado. After our con­ver­sa­tion with Dr. Wash­ing­ton, we chat with this year’s Tyler Prize pan­el mod­er­a­tor Kel­ly Sims-Gal­lagher, a pro­fes­sor at the Fletch­er School of Law and Diplo­ma­cy, about the evolv­ing inter­sec­tion of glob­al affairs and cli­mate science.
