Categories

Each episode is sorted by what category its solution falls in. For example, an episode about a youth-led climate initiative will be in the Climate & Society category. It might also be categorized as a Land episode if the initiative focuses on land use or nature-based solutions. 

Click here to see descriptions of each category, or use the dropdown menu, above, to search for episodes that belong to a particular category.

Tags

While categories are limited to the 11 we’ve identified, episodes are tagged with terms that come directly from the episode itself. Tags offer more precise searches than categories. For example, if you are reading a blog about electric vehicles and want to learn more about them, click on the tag at the bottom of the episode; this will bring up search results for all episodes that have been tagged with “electric vehicles.”

You don’t have to use terms that we’ve tagged for each episode! The search function allows you to search for any term or combination of words you want. You can find the search button by looking for the magnifying glass icon at the top of each page.

Buildings. With millions of existing buildings and millions more being built, energy efficiency, building materials, and retrofits are necessarily a primary source of climate solution and innovation.

Climate and Society. Hear from innovators, big thinkers, and leaders on how climate solutions can impact society and how anyone can make a difference.

Climate Justice. Learn about the reasons behind climate change’s disproportionate impacts on historically underserved communities and how environmental and energy justice leaders are working to combat those impacts.

Economics and Finances. Doing almost anything requires funding or money of some sort. Economics addresses how climate change will affect and is influenced by nearly every sector of the economy, such as the international trade of goods. But climate change also affects and is affected by kitchen-table finances, whether that’s through changes in energy costs or decisions about household appliances.

Energy. Solar and wind are just two of the many renewable sources of energy that can replace coal and natural gas. While renewable energy has made great strides, much more can be done.

Land.  Working and natural lands are sources of greenhouse gas emissions, often from forest and agricultural practices. Land and nature-based solutions can change that, turning forests, agricultural land, and open space into carbon sinks.

Policy. Policy is what helps us get to our goals, whether that’s by indicating how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or how much waste needs to be diverted from landfill to achieve a goal. Policy can be issued by governments, corporations, homeowners associations, the town council—or even informally by families who decide to take certain actions.

Sequestration. Science tells us that reducing greenhouse gas emissions will not be enough to prevent the worst effects of climate change. We must also sequester (remove) carbon from the atmosphere. There are many ways to do it—direct air capture, sequestration in soil, plants, and cement, to name a few.

Technology. Innovators and entrepreneurs around the globe are developing new technologies and finding new ways to do things that mitigate (prevent) carbon pollution and help us to adapt to our changing climate. Hear about the cool inventions and new applications in these episodes!

Transportation. The transportation sector (planes, trains, automobiles, etc.) is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, mostly from transportation fuel. From electric vehicles to hydrogen fuel to scooters and beyond, there are many innovative and promising solutions.

Waste. While carbon dioxide is the standard unit of climate pollution, methane is an even more powerful pollutant–more than 80 times more powerful. Decomposing organic waste is a key source of methane emissions; reducing it–whether that’s by recycling, composting, or other methods–is a critical climate mitigation strategy. But use of inorganic waste contributes to climate change, as well, the creation and disposal of which uses natural resources and results in the release of greenhouse gasses.
