Coming Up On Citizens' Climate Radio In 2021
In January we will feature speaker and author Rev. Tony Campolo talking about his groundbreaking 1992 book, "How to Rescue the Earth without Worshipping Nature: A Christians Call to Save Nature." He tells us about his message today to Christian leaders. In the Art House, Laura England and Jennie Carlise from Appalachian State University’s Climate Stories Collaborative will share about the vital role of producing art plays in helping students and the public better understand climate change. In February we will air an exclusive interview with former Rep. Bob Inglis, executive director of republicEn. He will talk about the road ahead in getting conservatives engaged in climate solutions. In the February’s Art House, folk singers Annie Patterson and Peter Blood will talk about the songs that have motivated people to care about the earth and the people on it. They also offer up their own tiny desk concert. Later in the year, we will hear from Cherokee lawyer and playwright Mary Kathryn Nagle, Cameroonian Jacques Kenjio, CCL's Francophone Africa coordinator and poet Craig Santos Perez, historian Dr. Geraldo Cadava. author of The Hispanic Republican, Tykee James, the Audubon Society’s government affairs coordinator and co-organizer for the first #BlackBirdersWeek, and climate anxiety experts Dr. Krista Hiser and Sarah Jaquette Ray, plus many other climate action figures, artists, and thinkers.
In 2021 we will also introduce a new feature to our monthly show. Our Good News Report will give listeners a chance to share those important and often underreported stories of climate successes. It may be a story of national significance or something happening in your own neighborhood. We want to celebrate your successes. If you have a good news story, email us: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can hear Citizens Climate Radio wherever you get podcasts. Please subscribe and rate our show so we can continue to grow and reach climate advocates in CCL and beyond.
