Radio program – Breaking Through: A Year of Climate Conversations

This radio program featuring a climate recap of 2020 was assembled from Climate One programs produced between January and November of 2020. 

Unprecedented is one of the most overused words of 2020, but it reflects the superstorm of disruption brought on by an overlapping pandemic, racial justice awakening, and presidential election.

For the first time ever, climate change helped galvanize a record number of voters to elect Joe Biden to the Presidency. How has the focus on climate shifted in a year shaped by multiple social and economic crises? Join us for a look back on a year of climate conversations like no other. This program includes excerpts from Climate One interviews held between January and November of 2020.

The speakers listed on this page are just a few of the special guests you’ll hear from in this program.
