Updated: Nov 12, 2019

Climate scientist, founder of NoFlyClimateSci, and author of Being The Change: Live Well and Spark a Climate Revolution, Dr. Peter Kalmus joins to talk about the real impact of air travel on climate change and why he's actually optimistic about the future. Plus, Delta's poisonous uniforms and Flygskam!

You didn't think we'd do a podcast without citing our sources, did you? Not a chance. Check out some additional reading in the Show Notes below.

Show Notes:

First Stop:

The Vox article we referenced in the story about Delta flight attendants' (possibly) poisonous uniforms is linked in the first paragraph of this post, but you can read more about the Alaska Airlines lawsuit that preceded it. If you want to hear from the scientists themselves, dig deeper into what this Harvard study about chemicals in flight attendants' uniforms.

If you're as freaked out as Alicia is by all the chemicals that the United States doesn't regulate, this New York Times article has more information what how chemical regulation in the U.S. differs from other places around the globe. And this website details the chemicals in your cosmetics.

Interview with Dr. Peter Kalmus:

Dr. Kalmus and NoFlyClimateSci. We also recommend his book, "Being the Change: Live Well and Spark a Climate Revolution" and following climate activist Greta Thunberg on Twitter.

Language Love:

Flygskam: (Swedish) Flight or flying shame
