In this Episode:

ADAPTATION MEDIA – Erika describes how she got into the field of adaptation reporting at Climatewire.

CLIMATE GENTRIFICATION – Erika talks about this emerging issue and how it impacts low income communities and also how it’s influencing the real estate market in Miami. Erika discusses how “Jim Crow Laws” led

to the present day racial make up of Miami and how these areas are in some of the highest elevations in the region.  We also discuss if climate gentrification is just a short term phenomenon created by real estate speculators to drive up the price of real estate in the short term, ignoring the long term realities of climate change impacts.

FELLOW REPORTERS – Erika talks about her favorite climate reporters and the types of stories they cover.
