What do our planting projects sound like? How many tree updates can our Tree Planting Officer Pieter squeeze into one phone call? And what are the strangest ‘Climate Change is a hoax’ theories on the internet?
We want to try and answer all of these questions. And what’s the best format for that? A podcast! From now on, you can get in-depth updates from our projects, the Ecosia team’s views on climate related news and expert opinions from interesting people in sustainability. You can subscribe to The Ecosia Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn, or wherever you get your podcasts!
In this episode, Pieter and I talk about how rain is currently affecting many of our projects (we found a map that shows you where it’s currently rainy season in the world), about how we are offering an alternative to palmoil monoculture with our projects in Indonesia, the incredibly cool fact that there’s a new village forming around one of our planting sites in Madagascar, and the critical political situation in Nicaragua.
Jacey and Lasse decided to look for the strangest ‘Climate change is a hoax’ theories on the internet and try to debunk them. For this episode, they chose Dan Peña’s claim that climate change must be a fraud because ‘otherwise banks wouldn’t give out loans for coastal property’. Strong language included (courtesy of Mr. Peña; Jacey and Lasse were rather well-behaved). Here are the resources they found during their research.
Given that this is our first Ecosia podcast episode, we would be very interested to hear your thoughts. Please send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
