Check out this sobering article in Rolling Stone, on how the impacts of abrupt climate change are already with us. I had a really nice chat with Eric Holthous about the article: “Jacquelyn Gill is a paleoecologist at the University of Maine. She knows a lot about extinction, and her work is more relevant than ever.” It’s too bad I can’t cite that in my next NSF proposal!
Also, the PBS documentary series, The First People, came out in June. I spent a day with the film crew last year, and it’s really exciting to see everything come together. My research on the Pleistocene megafaunal extinctions is featured in the episode on North America. And yes, there’s poop. You can watch all five episodes here.
And, finally, I had a really time chatting with Marie McNeeley at The People Behind the Science podcast.
