Florida has always been seen as the state where strangely comedic and outright dangerous antics take place. As usual, Florida has drawn national attention, but not for the outlandish headlines you might expect. In the past few weeks, the Florida Legislature has been looking at two controversial policies which would make it more difficult to protest, and legislation preempting energy regulations. For weeks, organizers in Florida have been mobilizing relentlessly against this policy that would criminalize protesting and preempt energy regulation to the state, but the Florida Legislature has been relatively successful with them. Florida House Representative Anna Eskamani has been one of the state’s loudest voices leading the fight for a fair Florida future. Listen to this episode as we discuss with Representative Eskamani the roots and consequences of these pieces of legislation, what they mean for everyday people in Florida, and what we can still do about it.Guest Description: Fighting for everyday families in swing-state Florida, Anna Eskamani is one of Florida’s most progressive leaders, championing Florida’s issues in environmental, climate, economic, social, and racial justice. At only 30 years old, Anna is the first Iranian-American elected to any public office in Florida. As Florida House Representative of District 47, Anna represents parts of Florida’s Orange County, where the City of Orlando is. In 2018, Anna flipped her legislative seat, and then in 2020, she won her re-election by an overwhelming majority. Recently, she’s been leading the charge for our right to protest and municipalities ability to transition to clean energy.
In this episode of House on Fire, we interview Nobel prize-winning scientist, Dr. Michael E. Mann about the decades of climate change disinformation that’s been fueled by interest groups, fossil fuel firms, political/public figures, etc. This idea sprouted in light of the energy justice crisis in Texas, a shining example of energy injustice, where extreme weather proved how unreliable and incompetent an independent, fossil-fuel-based grid is. With that, we’re seeing opponents of clean energy spread lies about what’s happening, leading to an uninformed conversation about climate change. But the burning question that we’ll be focusing on this episode is why did they lie? And in whose interest?Guest Name/Attributes: Dr. Michael E. Mann is one of the world’s most renowned climate scientists and communicators. He is known for significantly contributing to our current scientific understanding of human-made climate change by examining our planet’s temperature record over the past thousand years. Today, Dr. Mann is the Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State and is the director of the Penn State Earth System Science Center. Dr. Mann has authored over 200 publications, many op-eds and commentaries, and five books, including his newest one: The New Climate War: The Fight To Take Back Our Planet. His latest release explains how fossil fuel firms, right-wing politicians, media personalities, and oil-funded governments profit from our outdated dependence on fossil fuels through powerful sources of disinformation, denial, and delay. House on Fire is produced and edited by Michael Landsberg/ML3 Media. It is hosted by the All Points West podcast network.
In 2020, we lost lives to a deadly pandemic, climate catastrophes and police brutality. Amidst the chaos of it all, young leaders realized 2020 was no anomaly. It became clear that the system they once understood as “normal” was driving us toward extinction, so they began imagining and building worlds beyond it. On this episode of House on Fire, we’re joined by Varshini Prakash, the Executive Director of The Sunrise Movement, to imagine this better world and discuss what needs to be done to achieve it. From leading a divestment campaign on her college campus to spearheading the movement for a Green New Deal, Varshini embodies one of the most remarkable journeys in the climate movement. Guest: Varshini Prakash, Executive Director, The Sunrise Movement
The upcoming general election in the United States may just be the most important election of our lifetime. The due date to globally act on climate before we set off catastrophic tipping points is approaching. Everything about the health and safety of ourselves and our communities is at stake. Still, the United States sits back on the climate fight, in denial and inaction. But this November, we have the opportunity to change that. To do so, we need young people to show up to the polls like never before. What’s at stake? How is voting a form of climate action? What keeps young people from voting? How do we get them to the polls? How do we go beyond the ballot? We answer these questions and more in conversation with Saad Amer, CoFounder of Plus1Vote. House on Fire is produced by ML3 media at Unicorn Fire Studios with All Points West, with support from The CLEO Institute and technical direction from Mia Kirn & Michael Landsberg. Guest: Saad Amer, CoFounder, Plus1Vote
The role of parents in the climate movement should not go unnoticed. As members of our youth have become leaders of driving climate action in their communities, many families have begun to understand the urgency from their children’s eyes and changed the conversation at home. On this episode of House on Fire, we’re speaking to two parents in this fight: Bill Weir, CNN Chief Climate Correspondent, and Yoca Arditi-Rocha, Executive Director of The CLEO Institute. Listen as we discuss the role of parents as they understand and help stop the threat an unstable climate places on future generations. House On Fire is produced by Unicorn Fire Radio and All Points West, with support from the CLEO Institute and technical direction from Mia Kirn.
We know that the climate crisis will affect us all. But will it affect us all equally? The answer –simply enough– is no. In recent weeks, the world has witnessed an outpour of rage, sadness, and empowerment in response to the ongoing police brutality against the Black community. Recognizing that we cannot achieve Climate Justice without Racial Justice, we are joined by Executive Director of Minnesota, Sam Grant, and Intersectional Environmentalist, Leah Thomas, better known as GreenGirlLeah, to discuss the underlying systems of racist inequality that have contributed to the Climate Crisis. House On Fire is produced by Unicorn Fire Radio and All Points West, with support from the CLEO Institute and technical direction from Mia Kirn.
