Climate intelligence has to come before climate tech

May 14, 2019

To adapt to a changing climate, we have to understand the scope of the problem in order to better predict what might happen, and when. Collecting climate data on the scale of the entire globe is a job for NASA. And in this installment of “How We Survive,” our series on tech to adapt to climate change, we hear more about NASA’s $1.9 billion earth science missions, including the Orbiting Carbon Observatory 3, tasked with “watching the Earth breathe from space.”

Today's show is sponsored by the Michigan Economic Development Corp. and the University of California Warrington College of Business.
