The Green is Good Radio Show interviewed IoES Adjunct Professor Jon Christensen about his background, teaching, environmental challenges, and communicating science.
Jon Christensen, adjunct professor at UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, has a career-spanning history dealing with environmental issues as a journalist for countless notable magazines, journals and other publications. Now, Christensen is settling into a new role with UCLA that began in 2012. Christen calls Los Angeles a “great global, diverse city facing global environmental challenges and opportunities.” UCLA offers the setting to study these challenges and opportunities in an ever-changing urban environment.
“[Humans] are leaving a signature in the geological record,” Christensen says. “Shifts in the geological record define geological eras. It’s very clear that we’re now in a different kind of era.”
Green is Good is hosted by Electronic Recyclers International's John Shegerian and airs every Saturday at 5 p.m. EST in more than 170 cities in the U.S. and Canada on America's Talk XM Channel 244.
