Listen. Watch. Read. Act.

Climate Connections is a daily (M-F), 90-second radio program, currently broadcast on more than 550 radio stations and their affiliated frequencies across the United States. The program helps listeners understand how climate change is already impacting our lives, and what diverse people and organizations are doing to reduce the associated risks. The series “connects the dots” between climate change and energy, extreme weather, public health, food and water, jobs and the economy, national security, and the creative arts, among other topics.

Launched August 18, 2014, Climate Connections is hosted by Anthony Leiserowitz, Ph.D., Director of the Yale Center for Environmental Communication, edited by veteran environmental journalists Bud Ward and Sara Peach, and produced by ChavoBart Digital Media. Funding is provided by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment.

Climate Connections is supported by a companion website which provides access to more information, an archive of past stories organized by theme and geography, and other original news articles and videos on climate change science and solutions.

Climate Connections is available to radio stations at no cost, and distributed via,, CD, Dropbox, or from our own ftp site. For more information about the program and to obtain an affiliate agreement, please contact:
