Earthgauge Radio – Sept. 3, 2019
On the show this week, an interview with the journalist and author Tatiana Schlossberg (begins at 27:50).
Tatiana is a journalist and former NY Times Science writer who also happens to be the granddaughter of former US President John F. Kennedy. She’s just written a book called ‘Inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impacts You Don’t Know You Have’.
As students return to school this week and many are buying things to stock up for the new year, Tatiana’s book takes a fascinating and entertaining look at the way climate change and environmental pollution are intimately involved in our everyday life – in everything we use, buy, eat, wear, and how we get around – and have consequences that extend far beyond our lives. Earthgauge spoke with Tatiana about the startling information she uncovered in her book, and how we can reduce the environmental and climate impact of the everyday things we purchase.
Tatiana Schlossberg is a journalist and author. She was a climate reporter for the NY Times and has written for the Atlantic, Bloomberg View and The Record.
