In the first episode of the podcast, Degroot interviews professor Geoffrey Parker of Ohio State University. Parker, one of the world’s best-known historians, has recently published Global Crisis: War, Climate Change and Catastrophe in the Seventeenth Century. In his conversation with Degroot, he describes the consequences of early modern cooling for people around the world, explains how historians can link climate change to everyday activities, and argues that understanding the past can help us address the future.
Every few months, the Climate History Podcast will add new interviews with the most interesting people in climate change research, journalism, and policymaking, always from the perspective of environmental history. Click here to listen to the first episode, and click here to subscribe on iTunes.
