Climate change seems to have our undivided attention as its effects span every cultural, social, and economic reach of our earth’s populace. In a nutshell, carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere resulting from anthropogenic activity has initiated the rapidly accelerated warming of temperatures globally. We hear through the media on a regular basis, just how imperative it is that we halt the rise before it exceeds unrecoverable levels and drastic changes begin to occur in every facet of the environment.
With climate change at the forefront of most environmental discussions, scientists have taken it upon themselves to seek out a viable path forward towards achieving our climate targets by 2050. Clean energy and a move towards decarbonization has been distinguished as the most urgent task. Scientists conclude that through the use in nuclear power, whole civilizations can be powered and carbon emissions can be dramatically lowered. Nuclear power is being characterized as environmentally advantageous in comparison to alternative for of energy.
For decades our society has been constantly urbanizing, turning untouched land into skyscrapers and sub-divisions. We are constantly attached to technology and glued to what’s going to happen next on social media. What if everyone took a step back and remembered what used to make most of us so happy when we were younger? Playing outside!! After researching the effects of how being outside affects mental and physical health; it’s evident that going outdoors has many positive benefits

Hey guys, my name is Leo Chai, host of Nature’s Radio Podcast and
today we will be having a special guest.
Harriet Minc, a biology student from Guelph University,
who is here to answer questions about her research on Ocean
Hi, great to be here today
Alright, nice to have you here.
Why is it that girls are most often considered and encouraged to be like flower petals—beautiful and artsy—instead of stems where complexity and science is a beauty of its own? Why is there a low ratio of girls to guys in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields?
Is it really that surprising to say that ocean acidification is another one of climate change’s despicable offspring? It seems that every major environmental issue in the news stems as a result of increasing carbon dioxide emissions from human activity, and what exactly do we plan to do about it? We forget about the problem, keep burning fossil fuels at unsustainable rates and continue to live comfortable lifestyles because we have yet to experience the consequences on a personal level.
