Episode 6.1, January 2022: In Season 6 of CPR's Connect the Dots podcast, we’re discussing climate resiliency — that is, our ability to handle the stresses caused by climate disruption and adapt to changing conditions. The crisis may be stark, but there are solutions and pathways to a viable, sustainable future. Kicking off the season, host Rob Verchick digs into resiliency, real estate, and how climate change is beginning to impact people's decisions on where to live -- or move. Rob is joined by Daryl Fairweather, chief economist at Redfin; Philip Mulder, a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business; Matt Kahn, Provost Professor of Economics at the University of Southern California and the author of Adapting to Climate Change; and Sean Hecht, CPR Member Scholar and Evan Frankel Professor of Policy and Practice at UCLA School of Law.
