Winter

Nov 17, 2020

The pandemic promises to claim many more lives as we head into winter. But, in one of our nation's most dismal times, we have elected a president who is poised to make science a factor in decision-making about this public health crisis. 

In this episode of Tested, host Dave DeWitt discusses the impact of that with Holden Thorp, editor-in-chief of the Science family of journals.

Americans have also tripled the amount of single-use plastic headed to the landfill and washing into the ocean during the pandemic. Crystal Dreisbach, a waste prevention advocate, says the pandemic is a priority, but we can't afford to neglect our environment.
