In 2014, Rolling Stone referred to Eric Holthaus as “the Rebel Nerd of Meteorology”, mainly in regards to his reputation for being defiantly optimistic in the world of science.
His work as a meteorologist and writing has highlighted the belief that climate change is the most important and consequential story of our time.
Furthermore, Eric’s transparency about living with autism and advocating for self-care has changed the way he interacts with the rest of the world.
In this conversation, Branden and Eric discuss how weather unites us in unique ways — and how this notion should be celebrated.
“With climate, we are finally starting to realize that this is a story about people, not about science, graphs or charts. It’s really a story about ourselves and how we interact with the rest of the world.”
