Mayewski continues climate change conversation on ‘The Maine Question’

What’s it like living and doing research in the world’s most remote locations?

Listen as Ron Lisnet continues his conversation with Paul Mayewski, director of the University of Maine Climate Change Institute.

In Part 2 of the two-part podcast “The Maine Question,” Mayewski recalls drilling ice cores on glaciers and living in a tent for weeks while it’s minus 50 degrees C. In addition to sharing exciting adventures, Mayewski talks about the tremendous power and responsibility of the media to report on climate change.

And while climate change has become politicized, Mayewski says climate science is fact-based and that it’s important to be a fact-based society.

While he believes the climate has already entered a period of instability, Mayewski says he’s optimistic about how the world could evolve.
