Podcast: Digging Into Past Climate

In this episode of the Climopedia podcast, we're taking a look back in time to learn about climate change in the past.

These days, when you hear about extreme climate events, like the floods in Australia or the heat wave in Russia last summer, it may seem like humans are becoming more vulnerable to the climate. But as long as humans have been around, we've been affected by climate change. So, when researchers today look back at past climate, what can they tell us about the changes yet to come?

Podcast Hosts: Alyson Kenward and Alana Range, with a segment from OnEarth's Jaime Bedrin.
