Podcast 4 – Historical Connections to Climate Change
Releasing this fourth episode just before the Christmas break, Gary and Amy go back in time to chat with Professor Conor Murphy, Department of Geography at Maynooth University and Professor Francis Ludlow, Department of Medieval Environmental History, Trinity College Dublin.
Covering a wide range of time, we look at ice ages, what causes them and aren’t we due another one? How did industrialisation of the West have an impact on our climate, historical extreme weather events and what lessons can we learn from the past. As always, we seek out the messages of hope, take away nuggest of wisdom and a call to action for everyone.
