The Today Show’s Al Roker is not afraid to call climate change for what it is — an urgent crisis. 

In our latest episode of Planet Forward, seen on PBS's Peril and Promise and produced in association with ASU's Global Futures Laboratory, Roker discusses his approach of effectively communicating the climate crisis to a general audience. You don't have to be on national television to apply his strategies to your own interactions.

Later in the episode, our youth correspondent, Calvin Bordas from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, shares how he puts himself into the narrative and uses relatable humor to reach out to viewers.
