In today’s episode:
An interview with Matt Mehalik, executive director of the Breathe Project
The Breathe Project is a coalition that brings together academics and scientists, public health officials and activists, and everyday Pittsburghers to tackle what executive director Matt Mehalik calls the “Achilles’ heel” of our region: Our air quality. Our conversation touches on Mehalik’s academic and professional background as a systems thinker; the history of Pittsburgh air pollution from the early 20th century to today; and the political implications of challenging environmental problems — including the climate crisis. Learn more about the Breathe Project at breatheproject.org, and follow their news and alerts on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.
