Former New York Times science writer Tatiana Schlossberg joins us to discuss her new book Inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impact You Don’t Know You Have. The book is about how just about everything we use, buy, eat, wear, etc. has a connection to climate change, and how consumers can be more cognizant of the impacts of their lifestyle and purchasing choices. Joining us for the conversation will be a climate change expert and anthropologist from the University of Maine.
Starting next Monday, Maine Public and more than 220 other news outlets around the world will present a weeklong series of stories on climate change. The special series, "Covering Climate Now,” comes in advance of the United Nations Climate Action Summit on Monday Sept. 23 in New York.
