New show “Yahoo Finance’s Climate Crisis Series” focuses on both the climate crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic. The vertical is exploring how our interconnectedness impacts life on a global scale.
The four-part series is hosted by Yahoo Finance reporter Akiko Fujita and debuts May 12.
Considering the lessons we can learn about climate change through the lens of the COVID-19 pandemic, the series looks at how leaders might rebuild after the pandemic, with an eye on countering the effects of global warming. Fujita and guests will also discuss how the vulnerability of traditional business models has been exposed through the pandemic and the climate crisis.
Topics covered across the series include food sustainability, climate gentrification, insuring for climate change, big data’s carbon footprint and lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The series features fisherman, residents and community activists focused on climate change, in addition to guests like Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute Chief Scientist Glen Gawarkiewicz, Good Catch CEO Chris Kerr, California Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara, Munich Re Chief Climate and Geoscientist Ernst Rauch and Miami Mayor Francis Suarez.
