July 4, 2023 was the hottest day ever recorded on Earth. Are we exceeding the Goldilocks zone of a habitable planet? We spend most of the hour talking with Jeff Goodell about his new book, “The Heat Will Kill You First: Life and Death on a Scorched Planet.”
We’ll also play an excerpt from our 2017 interview with Lynn Zinser of Climate Liability News about legal action against fossil fuel companies that is still relevant now, five years later.
At 8:30 PM, the great transatlantic team of Martin Simpson and Thomm Jutz discuss their collaboration “Nothing But Green Willow,” traditional songs that crossed the Atlantic and arrived in Appalachia. It was recorded in both Nashville and England, with a variety of singers from both places.
Then at 9:30, Dick Russell talks about his book “The Real RFK, Jr.: Trials of a Truth Warrior,” in which he defends vaccine denier Robert Kennedy Jr. as misunderstood, and very much an environmental crusader.
