Green Pulse Ep 34: The climate change detectives
Synopsis: Every first and third Monday of the month, The Straits Times analyses the beat of the changing environment, from biodiversity conservation to climate change in this podcast series.
Every year we seem to be facing more and more extreme weather events. This year, it’s been fires in Australia, Siberia and now the US West Coast. Record floods have caused havoc in China, while polar ice caps are melting faster. But can we link individual events to climate change?
In this episode, ST’s environment correspondent Audrey Tan and climate change editor David Fogarty speak with climate scientist Friederike Otto, who is the acting director of the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford, and co-lead of World Weather Attribution, an international effort to analyse and communicate the possible influence of climate change on extreme weather events.
