Just Leave? It Isn’t That Simple: A Look at Climate Change, Hurricanes and Underserved Communities in the United States

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association predicts there will be up to 6 major Atlantic hurricanes this year. It’s nearly a foregone conclusion these extreme weather events will claim lives, upturn communities and leave plenty of folks with nothing.  Despite the sheer horror that follows hurricanes, many American adopt an unempathetic stance toward the people […]

What Impact Do Wildfires Have On Our Environment?

Wildfires are unexpected disasters typically caused by lightning strikes, human-induced ignition and poorly contained prescribed burns.  Since 2000, nearly 70,072 wildfires have burned seven million acres of land in the United States yearly. As droughts and drier, hotter air becomes more prevalent with increasing climate change, so do wildfire events. California’s 2020 wildfire season was […]

Adapting to Climate Change in the Coming Years

As many have come to realize, climate change is an inevitable prospect in our changing world and a complex issue we have not fully comprehended. Climate-related disasters increased by 83%, from 3,656 incidents between 1980 and 1999 to 6,681 incidents from 2000 to 2020. However, the dangers go beyond extreme weather events battering communities and […]

Geoengineering: Creative or Crazy?

When it comes to creatively cooling our global warming, scientists are dreaming up new ways to reflect heat away from the Earth through a process called geoengineering. This week we explore everything from painted streets to harnessing the power of volcanoes, why the Greeks are already keeping it cool, and does Keith even know what he’s talking about?

Climate Change and Its Impact on Our Weather

While global warming used to be the so-called phrase of day, climate change tends to be a little more accurate. Yes, it’s true, we’ve had some pretty hot days here in California. Then, with the rash of fires we had in 2020, the term “warming” isn’t too far-fetched. In fact, a Stanford study found the […]

4 Ways Green Tech Will Change the Future, If We All Apply It

Incorporating green tech in our lives will not only affect the environment, but will also have an impact on job opportunities and food supply. Climate change and global warming continue to pose a serious threat to humanity’s survival. Fortunately, green technology is helping slow down global warming’s impact. As more countries apply green technology into […]

Only 100,000,000 Years Left To Live with Paul M. Sutter

When it comes to learning more about the Earth, it’s important to look to our own solar system to see how the other planets have transformed over millions of years. That’s why we invited astrophysicist, author, host, and science educator Paul M. Sutter to join us this week on The Biofriendly Podcast to chat about interstellar space travel, life on other planets, and why Bruce Willis could be the key to everything!

How Climate Change Impacts Our Water

With all of the recent extreme weather events occurring around the world, it’s important to look at our Earth’s natural water cycle and how it is being affected with our changing climate. This week we welcome back guest Michael Carroll to talk about what’s going on under the surface, some methods of capturing water, and why sometimes Scrooge McDuck is the only way to understand it all.

Frozen Energy In Texas

After the recent winter storms in Texas, we have seen a fair amount of finger-pointing as to why the state was underprepared and left in the cold. This week on The Biofriendly Podcast we directly address the accusations against green technology, why a fire should always have its place, and Noel gets riled up about all the nonsense!

The Polar Vortex

As the news continues to report record low temperatures and winter storms hitting as far south as the U.S. State of Texas, it’s time to talk about what a Polar Vortex is exactly and why this is happening. Having been knee-deep in a Polar Vortex before, Noel and Jacob break down the science behind the arctic blast, what it means for our Earth’s climate, and that the only way to survive an Ice Age is in a Wendy’s.
