He chats with Kate Madigan who is Chair of the Michigan Action Climate Network, Brent Lofgren, a NOAA researcher at the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, and Stephanie Gandulla of the NOAA Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Part 1 looks at defining climate change and some of its possible impacts on Michigan. Part 2 explores climate change and the Great Lakes. Part 2 also introduces potential impacts on shipwrecks along with how people talk about it in a non-dividing manner. Part 3 continues that conversation.
