Did you lose pow­er at some point this sum­mer? Between the gaps in elec­tric­i­ty ser­vice, shel­ter­ing in place, the fires on the West Coast, and the mul­ti­ple trop­i­cal storms hit­ting in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mex­i­co, peo­ple in the US have many rea­sons to be avert­ing their gaze from the future of our cli­mate. There are, how­ev­er, a few coura­geous souls in our insti­tu­tions of high­er learn­ing who per­sist in imag­in­ing what the world will look like a decade or more into the future. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak to Daniel Kirk-David­off, a research sci­en­tist at Under­writ­ers Lab­o­ra­to­ries. He gives us a glimpse into the 2035 cli­mate report from the Cen­ter for Envi­ron­men­tal Pub­lic Pol­i­cy at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, Berke­ley – there’s actu­al­ly some good news in there. He also sheds light on the com­plex choic­es and gam­bles that result in rolling black­outs across the US. While record high tem­per­a­tures bat­tered the world this sum­mer, not every country’s elec­tri­cal grid respond­ed in the same way.
