Heat of the Moment looks at the origins of the global climate crisis and finds areas of optimism.

In our premiere episode, we climb aboard an audio time machine with the reporter Adam Cole to look back at pivotal moments in climate change history.  Host John D. Sutter speaks with the actor and climate activist Ed Begley Jr. about the first Earth Day 50 years ago and the things he has done over the years to promote eco-friendly living and policies. And we hear from Christiana Figueres, former U.N. climate chief and author of The Future We Choose, on how hope can lead to change.

About Heat of the Moment:  The climate change crisis can feel so formidable, so daunting, that instead of mobilizing people to action, it engenders paralysis. What could we mortals possibly do to prevent the calamity? A fair bit, it turns out. On Heat of the Moment, a 12-part podcast by FP Studios, in partnership with the Climate Investment Funds, we focus on ordinary people across the globe who have found ways to fight back.  Hosted by CNN contributor John D. Sutter, each episode begins with an interview about a particular aspect of climate change that threatens our planet. The segment is followed by a sound-rich report highlighting one green project somewhere around the world—from Ghana to Brazil to Morocco. Listeners will hear from people who use innovation, technology, and investment to roll back the devastation. Heat of the Moment tells the stories of the people on the front lines of the fight against climate change.  See All Episodes
