Climate Change Blamed for Havoc in Northeast US Floods
"The northeast still cleaning up all of the destruction caused by the remnants of hurricane ida last week at least fifty people died and while residents in some public health officials were surprised by the severe weather. Storms like this or what. Scientists have long warned about jeff brady from npr's climate team reports in bridgeport pennsylvania about one in the morning thursday vernon perry says the nearby river was rising and the fire department. Woke him up. They just were saying evacuate. Now get out the only chance you to go. Now get out run. There wasn't even time to move his car. It's flooded like others on this street a front loader hauls them to waiting trucks at the end of the muddy blocked. Brenda night is sitting under front step next to the sidewalk. Where a pipe. Gushes water into the street. It's being pumped up from her basement. The water came up to the first floor here and first floor. My rug was soaking wet in. There has whether she expected such a severe storm because of climate change. Not at all. This is a complete surprise. We had no idea of the magnitude of the damage. That was going to be called even new york governor. Kathy hokuto who talks about climate change fueling. More severe storms was surprised. We did not know that between eight fifty nine fifty pm that the heavens literally open up and bring niagara falls level water to the streets of new york. It's one thing to talk about the effects of climate change. It's another to experience them. Says burnet. woods blackie chief meteorologist with climate centro even. If you said to her there was going to be over three inches of rain in one hour if she's never seen that what does that mean. What does that look like. What does that look like on the ground. Same for the rest of us but we're getting more examples. There was superstorm. Sandy new york and new jersey nine years ago.

Infrastructure Bill Offers Once in a Generation Investment in Climate Resilience
"To meet the moment to be responding to the needs of the people we have to be bold. And we can't tink worth the edges. I'm mpr chief meteorologist. Paul hutton here. And that was massachusetts democrat on presley. Talking about the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill that passed the senate this week. It now heads to the house where presley and her progressive colleagues say. It isn't bold enough on climate change especially on the heels of this week's dire warning in the un climate report but while some say it doesn't do enough to reduce emissions. It does offer billions to help the country prepare for the effects of climate change. Forbes tompkins manages efforts for flood prepared communities with the pew charitable trust and joins us now. Hi forbes welcome to climate cast i paul. Thanks for having me. So what do you see in this bill. That can help address. Climate change altogether. This bill really marks potentially a once in a generation investment in climate adaptation and resilience in particular. There's a focus on transportation and it's going to open up An abundance of resources for communities to develop new plans to implement new projects that can better prepare themselves for flooding and other types of disasters. So let's focus on the flooding aspect a little bit. I know you work a lot in that area. What are you seeing in there. That you think can have short term impact One of them is called the building resilient infrastructure and communities program and this bill would infuse a billion dollars into the program immediately and it would allow communities to support. You know any type of hazard mitigation projects That can help them reduce their risk that they face from disasters the second piece specific the flooding is also a second infusion for fema flood mitigation assistance program that provides financial and technical assistance to states localities for projects to reduce the risk of repetitive flood damage to properties and buildings insured by the national flood insurance
Refurbished Wind Turbine Powers Homes and Learning
"I'm standing underneath a wind. Turbine in chaska minnesota on a windy spring day. I'm npr chief meteorologist. paul hutton. Her this is climate. Cast this wind turbines middle. School educates students about renewable energy and generates electricity for nearby homes. It's operated by the minnesota municipal power agency or m. pa matt quota. Har- sqi is the group's chaska chair or standing under a hundred and sixty kilowatt Wind turbine that was refurbish. Here from palm springs california and one of these resides in each of the twelve member communities. And what does mpa do. So mvp is twelve member counties that basically represent municipal electric Users that we basically get together both to generate our own electricity for all communities or to purchase it off the grid depending on the pricing of one. Electric has a give time. What are you trying to accomplish. So basically our goal is -ccomplish having a very reasonable electric creates our goal is to have power that's cheaper than xl energy As investor owned utility. How is it going deeper. Yep it's going very well. We're on a residential level. We ten in chaska to be about eight to nine percent lower than xl energy. These swishing blades above us help adults and their pocketbooks and offer a learning opportunity for students. Amy feet teaches. Fourth graders at saint. John's lutheran school in chaska. She leads her students on field trips to see renewables action. It's a great opportunity for students to think about how they use energy on a daily basis. We think about what are some ways that maybe we could cut some of our energy use and maybe not us quite as much energy. Our we may be wasting energy. We talk about how our use of energy affects the planet and all the people around us as well and then we also when we get to favorable energy park We they put us through. Maybe we'll ride a bike and we'll try to power entire home and how hard that is when we have lots of different things on in our home versus when we have maybe one thing on or two things on We'll go to a different station where we look at the solar panel. We'll go to a different station where we look at the wind turbine We'll talk about how we use non-renewable energy and also renewable energy the differences in those and how they actually affect us and how they actually affect the world around
The Search for a Better EV Battery as Customer Demand Rises
"More expensive models are going to have even longer ranges were go. What would be about the same as a small car. Get on a full tank of gas. That stand guerrino from inside climate news and he's been following new kind of space race in electric vehicle batteries. And i'm npr chief meteorologist. Paul hutton hutler today on climate cast. How quickly is ev battery tech evolving. Hi dan welcome back to climate cast and to be here. So you wrote about the quest for a solid state. Ev battery what are they. And how are they different from current ev. battery tech. so right now the battery. That is in just about ali's if not all either that i know of have a joe material a kind of a thick liquid material that is what the electrons pass through as they charge and discharge a solid state battery is designed in which those electrons are passing through a solid material. The reason that that's potentially a breakthrough is that it takes less space to have the same amount of energy passing through a solid than it does through a gel on so you can pack more batteries into the same space more power into the same space which leads to longer ranges. it also can lead to faster charging times as far as automakers. We know tesla has led the way in. Ev technology which other automakers are now going all in on ev technology. Just about every major automaker is at the very least talking a lot about their vm. Bishen volkswagen is the company that could probably make the strongest case right now that it is investing the most heavily and making kind of a a top to bottom transformation into an e company.
The Natural Gas Boom Appears To Be Going Bust
"Son natural gas as the bridge fuel to a net zero energy future but the rapidly emerging climate solutions mean. That bridge is getting shorter fast. I'm npr chief. Meteorologist paul hutton. Her and today on climate cast is the natural gas boom going bust. Justin mccullough is an independent journalists covering the finances of the energy transition. Hi justin welcome to climate cast. I paul thank you very much. So big companies like shell bet big on natural gas what are emerging solutions to the economics of natural gas. There are two main challenges to show all the people who had bet big on the future of natural gas and specifically liquefied natural gas. Renewable energy now can produce electricity for lower costs than natural gas. Fired power straight up competition. The other issue is there's oversupply right now. What level of investment are we talking about to get into these projects you know when shell bet big on the future of natural gas they in two thousand sixteen. They bought a company for over fifty billion dollars in two thousand and nine exxon company for over forty billion dollars. Exxon has since written off the majority of that forty billion dollars as a loss and it now appears that shell is facing similar problems with its fifty billion dollar investment in natural
Why There Is A Change Coming To Your Local Weather Forecast
"There is a change coming to your local weather forecast next month. The data that it's based on will be updated that will make the warmer climate literally. The new normal here's npr's jennifer. Ludden weather forecasters work off a thirty year average and it gets updated every decade right now. What's normal for temperature and precipitation is based on nineteen eighty one to two thousand ten. That's why we've all gotten used to this. Well temperatures for your friday. We'll be running about ten degrees than normal seven degrees above average yesterday. Look into tomorrow above. Normal temperatures will the past decade. Was one of the hottest on record mike. Pilecki of the national oceanic and atmospheric administration says that will show up in the new averages called climate normals. They'll drop the eighties and wrap in the twenty tens. It was a very substantial upward trend in temperatures especially along the west coast of south and along the east coast. He says there were exceptions. Oh you can go to fargo north dakota. That would be a place where it's actually cooled a little bit if that's your interest especially in the springtime but the fastest warming places. We'll see a real bump up in their averages. Amber sellin is chief. Meteorologist at abc fifteen phoenix. Where she says last summer was incredibly hot. We set a record of fifty three days at one hundred. Ten degrees or hotter. The previous record was thirty three days so it wasn't even close what's more she says. In the entire past decade phoenix did not said a single record for low temperature now oddly after the update in may some really hot days or nights could become officially cooler than the new normal plans to take more time to explain all this. We're going to have to remind people especially this year. Hey if we're at one fifteen. That is five degrees above the average but remember this average has changed. This average is not what it used to
Expect low ice years on Lake Superior to continue
"Little to no ice floating along marquette bay noah reported january's total ice coverage in the great lakes to be the lowest in the last forty eight years lake superior. Ice cover briefly grew to fifty percent during our february arctic outbreak but that fleeting is vanished just as quickly with our mild march. I'm npr chief. Meteorologist paul hutton. And today on climate cast. What are longer term lake superior ice trends telling us about climate change in the upper midwest professor j austin researchers all things lake superior with the large lakes observatory at the university of minnesota duluth high. Welcome back to climate cast. Thanks for having me on paul. Let's start with this past winter. What was notable with ice cover on lake superior It was a really unusual year very low ice covered starch and we had that remarkable cold air in february and we ended up with fleetingly above average ice levels superior and just as remarkably. They went away really quickly. And how does this fit with the longer term ice trends that you're seeing on lake superior and the great lakes. I expect that we're going to see Significantly lower than average ice cover this year and basically since about nineteen ninety eight. We've had a long string of relatively low ice cover on lake superior with some exceptions like like the polar vortex in twenty fourteen where we had nearly complete coverage for two months.
Deadly tornadoes batter southern states
"We're following a story in Alabama tonight, deadly tornadoes ripping through there. Trees have been toppled. Power lines are down homes have been leveled. We go to NBC's chief meteorologist in Jersey, who was in Birmingham. It's not over. Not even close from southern Indiana all the way into Mississippi. We still have tornado watches up particularly dangerous situation. Tornado watches it that we're gonna move this east as we go through tonight, So even through the midnight hour in north Georgia or eastern Tennessee and Kentucky, you need to be on the lookout, damaging wind and hail also a threat on top of the tornadoes. The only good news. It starts to weaken as it gets into south and North Carolina by tomorrow, and so far, the death toll sits at five in Alabama, as well as several others with

MN leads Midwest, but falls short on electric vehicles
"The purchasing power of the federal government to buy clean zero emission vehicles that are made in source right here in america. That's president joe biden. He wants to electrify the federal fleet to help reduce transportation greenhouse gas emissions but our consumers and states ready to follow. I'm npr chief meteorologist. Paul hutton are here with climate. Cast the american council for an energy efficient economy tracks eib progress their state policy director. Brian howard is here. Hi brian hey all great to be with you today. So this is some pretty big news on the ev front. I president biden's plan and then gm announces its goal to sell only electric vehicles by twenty thirty five. Are we approaching a tipping point here for these. I think so. We've continued to see a steady growth in the av market Even this year despite all the challenge of the covid so you with those activities that are coming from federal government and from a major auto manufacturers. I think we are reaching invasion point about what transportation electric vacations gonna look like in the united states and correct me if i'm wrong but these are only about two percent of the market right now. Why is this such a huge scale of opportunity for vs to reduce these transportation emissions to start with the transportation sector is responsible for about eight percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the united states which is the largest emitter based on kind of the sectors. That are out there So when we're to convert interro combustion engines and move that over to electric vehicles. There's a significant emissions reduction benefit which obviously helps with climate. But then also there's a number of other residual really important benefits as it relates to public health that you get from electrifying transportation. Well in one of those. I assume is jobs right because it's not just the vehicles you need the right infrastructure charging infrastructure. You need the right policies to move these things along which states are leading on this front of the hundred points that we looked at california scored. Ninety one next in line was new york at sixty three point. Sixty three point five which is obviously a pretty deep differentiation between the numbers. And how does minnesota rank minnesota is twelfth based on our evaluation which is a leader in the midwest but certainly is behind the national leaders in the top ten. What is minnesota doing. Well and where is there a need for faster. Progress with vs. So minnesota's done a number of things well Minnesota has done a really good job of articulating. How utilities could invested infrastructure. The state has also taken some initial steps to ratify california's zero emission vehicles regulations which would set that manufacturers need to sell a certain number of electric vehicles from passenger like vehicles in the state of which is being considered. Now you know there are some things that clearly need improvement They have identified that the absence of statewide incentives for electric vehicles is a challenge in something that they need to address. One thing. We should touch on right when we're charging an electric vehicle. It matters where that power came from right absolutely. And so what. Are you seeing with trends of different states. That have More renewable energy than other places when it comes to being able to charge navy with that we are seeing a an overall positive trend in terms of having states move towards outer percent clean energy for their for their grids. There's also a lot of states that are taking that activity very seriously and providing interim goals about how they're going to get to that low carbon future minnesota as an example is considering how to deal with that now in the legislature But other states have already shown us the way. Brian howard state policy director with the american council for an energy efficient economy. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective. Climate cast today. It's great to be here.

"And done. How many jerseys First news 5 14 as we bring in our chief meteorologist, Dan zero. So, Dan, not much happening now. What happens is we go through the day today, Things were going to fire up later on. It's not surprising that we haven't seen very much from this winter storm yet because dry air just has this grip on New Jersey so There just hasn't been much falling from the sky. I think that changes around late this morning. Let's say around 10 o'clock is our turning point. As precipitation moves in, and this time it's gonna be pretty widespread here. To the north of about Mercer and Monmouth counties. We're going to start with at least some wintry mix, if not straight, snow, the farther north you go the colder it's gonna be obviously so road conditions may go downhill is we get into the early afternoon hours a little bit ice there. On down a little bit of snow accumulation south of that point, it's going to be mainly rain, but you might find some snowflakes and sleep pellets in involved there again. It's not a major winter storm, but just have to watch out for those changing weather conditions and changing road conditions as the day goes on. High temperatures today. 30 to 40. Things will start tapering off early this evening. But in North Jersey snow showers will probably continue through tomorrow morning. We might see some fog overnight lows fall into the lower to mid thirties. And then tomorrow partly sunny and relatively pleasant highs mid forties chance of a shower Thursday morning, then turning very cold and windy for the end of the week.

A record year for wind turbine shipments through Duluth
"Record year for wind. Turbine shipments in duluth. I'm npr chief. Meteorologist paul kutner with climate cavs. Here's a story about climate change solutions and economic prosperity. Twenty twenty was a record year. for winter. shipments through duluth harbor ships carried more than half a million tons of wind blades and towers into the harbor this year that means jobs for port workers in duluth for truckers who drive the giant blades across minnesota and for wind energy technicians building the giant swirling turbans on the prairie pater mavis is the western regional policy manager for the clean grid alliance. Hi peter welcome to climate cast. Paul what are the big wind. Power projects underway now. And what's coming in the next few years so The last couple of years have been very good for development. Economics is the driver here and utilities. Want the stuff commercial industrial customers. Want this stuff. And saint received very robust construction in north dakota south dakota minnesota in iowa currently there's about thirty seven hundred megawatts of projects under construction in these four states. And that's you know you're you're looking at over a thousand turbans just to fulfill that full of projects talked to us about jobs. What are the trend. Lines for employment in clean energy in the upper midwest. Well as we see more projects come online. There's a lot more for operation and maintenance. Jobs is actually somewhat of a deficit. And it's very difficult to find people affiliates positions and so a lot of universities other tech schools in the companies are doing things they can to try and get more people into this field and these are good well paying middle class jobs and i think the most important piece in that all set for rural jobs. And it's oftentimes. It's very difficult to find jobs in the rural parts of our state since so. This is an excellent addition to the row community. I know there are now some days where minnesota has enough generating capacity from win to produce a hundred percent of electricity from wind and solar. What are the trends like there. Well if you look at the region as a whole Minnesota and the upper midwest as part of the independent system operator which fifteen state organization that manages the ball transmission system and it creates efficiencies. So that you can move power across the entire central part of Country and you know because of the wind resources. So good in. North dakota south dakota iowa we could use just a ton of wind and move that you know states and to other states in the region that don't have as much visibility of when peter. What's the state of battery storage technology for wind and solar. How quickly as that technology advancing on its advancing quite rapidly. Great river energy just announced as part of their portfolio changed very large battery storage system in minnesota. There's gonna be some time before we can really scale up battery storage. In addition to the price point that can make it attractive for utilities. How fast has clean energy progressed in minnesota in the upper midwest. And what's the future. Look like well. If you think about a decade ago wind energy was just really kind of getting off the ground and states. Were starting to take initiatives to move that direction if you look now. I mean state of iowa. Forty percent of all their generation comes from win minnesota's at about nineteen percent self dakota's at twenty four four percent. North dakota generates about twenty seven percent. So we've seen very robust growth. We expect that to continue.
There Were 30 Hurricanes And Tropical Storms That Hit The Atlantic In 2020
"Twenty hurricane season goes off the charts. I'm npr chief. Meteorologist paul here. with climate. the two thousand twenty atlantic hurricane season broke several records. And it's not just the record. Thirty named storms or twelve. Us landfalls the way storms behaved. That's got climate change experts talking a record. Ten storms rapidly intensified this season hurricane ada flared from tropical depression two major category four hurricane in just thirty six hours hurricane expert jeff. Master's tracks hurricane transfer yale climate connections. Hi jeff welcome to climate cast. Hi paul what stands out to you. The most from this record atlantic hurricane season you know it was the late season activity. We had two major hurricanes november. Ada and i oughta both reached category four hurricane status. In fact i was a five. The latest category five we've ever seen in the atlantic the fact that we're able to have in november a time when the hurricane seasons normally over catastrophic hurricanes that really speaks to the unusual level of activity that the twenty twenty atlantic hurricane season had put the overall season into context for us. How does this layout compared to previous atlantic hurricane seasons. This was more than double regular season so it was like. We're seeing twenty twenty and twenty twenty one altogether in one year jeff as we watch these hurricanes rapidly intensify so quickly. Now i'm wondering what are the measurable links to climate change there. In his ernie way to quantify the climate change component to this rapid intensification. There was a paper published last year that looked at rapid intensification during the period One thousand nine hundred eighty two two thousand nine and they used a climate model to study that and they found that using the climate model could not account for the rapid intensification without using human caused climate change and that makes a lot of sense because he does energy and when you've got a lot more heat energy available to a hurricane you're gonna see more rapid intensification. You mentioned the november storms. We saw those back to back. Category four and five hurricanes hit. How can that level of human and economic destruction be a driver of climate migration the main gdp driver for the hunters economy which is the patriots hula valley with about two million people that generates sixty percent of their gdp and they basically had their economic activity destroyed their so without any economy. And with a lot of your crops by the hurricane people don't have anywhere to go. Nothing they can do to generate an income and defeat themselves so we saw the back in nineteen ninety eight. When mitch hit we had hundreds of thousands of hondurans leave and seek future elsewhere. We seem like we're in this era of climate change enhanced super hurricanes and seasons. How do these impact those of us. Who don't live on the coast. I made way all pay higher insurance rates to fund the people who do live on the coast who are subject to these flooding events. In fact the national flood insurance program is more than twenty billion dollars in debt. Thanks to all the storms. We've seen in recent years and you know here in michigan where i live.

That's why one of the world's biggest science organizations. The american geophysical union gives the climate communications prize as a top award every year. This year's winner is jennifer francis with the would well climate research center in massachusetts. She was nominated by minnesota climate scientists. John abraham with the university of saint thomas jennifer welcome to climate cast. Hi there thanks for having me jennifer. What does this award mean to you in the context of the importance of climate communication. Well it's of course. A huge huge honored to be recognized by my peers. My colleagues and i'm especially proud of the american physical union for creating this prize in the first place. Because i think the public really really wants to hear about the science now especially in these days of covert and climate change and all kinds of changes that are happening in the society to hear directly from the scientists themselves so i think it is even more important for us scientists to be able to explain the work that we're doing and that the public is paying for when you think about your fellow communicators. What skills do excellent climate communicators share. I think the best science communicators are able to take a very complicated but interesting topic and boil it down not dumb it down but boil it down so that they're talking to an audience and that audience is gonna come away with the most important information that whatever that science is saying And i think good communicators also are exciting. The people are want to hear them. And some of the best ones i think are able to impart that excitement to the audience about our audience. What communication tips do you have that. Maybe could help our listeners as they talk about climate change right so the listeners. I think are are really interested. Now we're finally getting traction with the public and with decision makers particularly when it comes to climate change and so my hope is that those listeners will will pay attention and maybe do some reading on their own and maybe cross reference and also. I think it's really important for the listeners. When they hear something that doesn't seem to make much sense to dig down a little bit and see where that information is coming from. Jennifer one of your areas of expertise is the arctic. And we've seen some dramatic sea ice and temperature shifts in the arctic this year. What specific trends are you watching in the arctic. And why are they important to all of us well. The arctic is changing just so fast and this year was an exclamation point on the trends that we've been watching as you say. The sea ice reached almost a new record this year. We're watching the arctic unfold in ways. We didn't expect to happen so quickly. There are many reasons why it matters to everyone for one thing. The rapid warming in the arctic is accelerating the melt of the greenland ice sheet which is raising sea levels. It's accelerating the faa of permafrost which is releasing more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and it's also disrupting weather patterns all down around the northern hemisphere so it affects all of us in many different ways woodward climate research center senior scientists jennifer francis. Thanks so much for your perspective on climate. Cast today my pleasure anytime.
Climate change puts hundreds of Superfund sites at risk
"Hundreds of toxic superfund sites are vulnerable to extreme weather. I'M NPR chief meteorologist Paul Kutner here with climate cast. Hurricane, Harvey Dump Forty five to sixty inches of rain on the Houston area in two thousand seventeen the extreme floodwaters inundated more than one hundred and fifty thousand homes. They also breached toxic superfund site washing deadly chemicals down. In concentrations more than two thousand times. The EPA required cleanup level according to inside climate news. Just. How many of these superfund sites are risk and exposed to these extreme weather events? Frank Coal Ash is the climate director at the Minnesota Pollution? Control Agency. Frank Welcome to climate cast. Hi, Paul Thank you for having me on today the Government Accountability Office reported last year that nine hundred, forty, five superfund sites across the US are vulnerable to hurricanes flooding, sea level rise increased precipitation or wildfires. I see fourteen of those are in Minnesota. What is it about the location of these toxic sites that makes them does too extreme weather events. What we know with a changing climate in Minnesota is that we are seeing heavier rainfall which presents a risk for flooding at some of these sites and the impacts to both surface waters near the sites and potentially groundwater near these sites which we are. Managing and controlling for the toxic chemicals that have been found there. So it's really within Minnesota and the way that our climate is changing is looking at how that precipitation regime is changing, and we've seen that in the mid West here in Nebraska in twenty eighteen, there was a superfund site there that was impacted by the massive flooding. It didn't leach any toxins, but I'm wondering has Minnesota seen any close calls like that? I'm not aware of any close calls that we've seen regarding specific flooding events in Minnesota but certainly, that risk exists anytime that we are seeing a changing climate like we have in that, we're trying to manage sites that have these toxic chemicals on them from past pollution events that we're trying to maintain keep people protected from especially our most vulnerable populations, and we know that one of the biggest climate changes were observing recording in Minnesota are these mega rainfall events these six to eight plus in Sch- rainfall events how is that being incorporated into your? Planning for these sites yes, and that is the kind of work that we're just really getting started with looking at our ability to understand what's going to happen with a rainfall like that and and is the water going to go and where are we at risk for a significant floods? How will that rainfall interact with any of the protective coverings or protections that have been built around the superfund sites and how that may impact the contaminants as they they are moving on the site, and hopefully we're able to keep them from moving away from her saying. Frank superfund sites were talking about clean up. After the fact, I'm curious how climate change can be taken into account before potentially hazardous developments break ground. Yes, and that is an area that we're particularly looking at right now we are providing funding to cities to be able to do climate resiliency and adaptation plans to be able to identify how the rainfall and precipitation flooding events are going to impact not just contamination contaminated sites but the infrastructure that we rely upon many people are concerned about potential pollution from mining projects in northern. MINNESOTA, in sensitive areas like the boundary waters, how can we be sure future extreme rainfall events won't breach containment of those proposed sites. We we continue to look at the best science and the best research about how we can we predict what these large rainfall events are going to look like, and then build that into the planning processes our permitting processes, frank coal, ash climate director for the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Thanks so much. Thank you.
Climate change is affecting flower pigments
"Our flowers reacting to climate change. I'm NPR chief meteorologist. Paul. Hutler here with climate cast. A new study in the journal current biology finds flower pigments are reacting to temperature and ozone changes. What does that mean for our flower colors, Clemson? University. Biology Professor Matthew. Kaczynski is an author of this study. Hi Matthew. Welcome to climate cast hype. All I want to get into the details but I what's your sort of elevator speech headline on climate change and flower colors. Yes. So flowers while one of their functions is to dry in pollinators. Another is actually protect the pollen in the abuse that hold the reproductive structures of the plant. And Pigments can protect Holland inaugurals from abiotic damage like from temperature or UV radiation. So climate change has the strong potential in we showed that it did contribute to changes in flower pigmentation. So for a non biologists like me, how would you explain the physical process increased pigmentation can lead to more absorption of solar radiation in any structure in so win a flower absorbs more light. It has the potential to increase in temperature. and. We found that flowers that have their pollen tucked within the pedals day actually declined in pigmentation when they experienced larger increases in temperature, and that could be a thermal regulatory response where flowers are actually decreasing pigmentation to reduce the chances that they're going to increase in temperature baked their pollen in species that have their pollen exposed to ambient light like a buttercup those when the pedals are open, you can see all of the panthers in those are the structures in the flower that hold the pollen So increasing UV pigmentation in the flowers might protect that pollen from ambient UV, light and so. Some species increased some species decline in pigmentation in some showed no change at all. How were you able to observe that in is a something we could see as visible to our is humans are Tri chromatic that means we see blue green and red, and that's our three photo receptors. Many insect pollinators are also try chromatic, but they see you the blue and green, and so what we measured is these UV absorbing pigments using ultraviolet photography if pollinators see these plans differently, how are these pigment changes impacting them? I've done some studies basically smearing sunscreens over the flowers so they become completely uv absorbing. That often reduces pollinator visitation. In, that might be because the UV reflection on pedals might help the flowers to kind of pop against a green vegetative background. So if it's declining, that could have potentially negative impacts for plant reproduction. So a lot of people like to plant flowers that attract pollinators, what does this mean for the average gardner who might be thinking about flowers for next year as a rule of thumb? It appears that more yellow flowered, plant, sleigh, comment asters, daisies those often are pretty UV reflective. In in terms of some of the common crop species that have UV, reflection on them, canola or ravenous, which is a mustard that is one that has these UV reflective traits on the flowers and then come in sunflower dozen while. Clemson University Biology Professor Matthew Kaczynski. It's a great conversation. Thanks so much for sharing on climate cast today. Thanks for having me.
