In today's conversation, I speak with climate educator Dr. Debra Tillinger. Dr. Tillinger holds a PhD in ocean and climate physics from Columbia University. She works at the American Museum of Natural History in New York city and is also a performance artist who teaches science informally as "Dr. Mermaid."
Dr. Tillinger and I talk about the history of climate research, some of the common myths associated with climate and climate change and why it's unlikely that science will come up with a single, simple solution to saving the earth's inhabitants.
