During Wallom‘s interview, there was a plethora of interesting and insightful conversations relating to climate change and its connection to the economy, infrastructure and corporate greed. While listening to the interview, I was extremely interested in the conversations about power lines and how the infrastructure of the United States in being affected by the climate change phenomenon. More specifically, I was quite intrigued with its connection to the Pacific Northwest and Washington. I remember being in Washington when the really warm summer was happening and we were hearing a lot of conversations around climate change while fires were breaking out all around us. Hearing that this fault in infrastructure/climate change could/was a huge factor in this very scary moment of my life was intriguing to learn through.
I would suggest asking Wallom more specific questions about how corporations play a role in the climate change crisis. I feel as though there is a huge impact at the hands of corporations on the amount of greenhouse gases that are being released into the atmosphere and the effects that big business is having on the climate crisis. I would like to see his thoughts on a comprehensive plan with government and corporations to work to try and protect against global warming and a climate emergency. Does he believe that it is possible? What changes would NEED to be made? Furthermore, what advice he has for new young leaders on ways to combat this crisis?
