The storms to come: What a new US administration means for the climate

This month, our long-read is Mark Rowe’s dossier about climate change in the USA. Mark looks at the Trump years, and the huge swathe of climate policies and environmental protections that were rolled back or neglected. He also looks forward to a new era, which will see the USA re-join the Paris Climate Agreement and rebuild legislation.

In the second half of the podcast, we catch up with polar explorer Felicity Aston, who last year, gave up a lifestyle of extremes for a brand new adventure.

These stories feature in the March edition of Geographical Magazine. The long-read The Storms to Come is narrated here by actor and voice artist Simon Paisley-Day.
