This week on The Children's Hour, we are joined by Laura Paskus, a climate change and drought author, and environmental journalist with New Mexico PBS. She released a book, At the Precipice: New Mexicos Changing Climate, in September 2020 that discusses how climate change affects the state.

We learn about drought, climate change and what we can do about it.

Then Katie talks with meteorologist Daniel Porter from the National Weather Service in Albuquerque about the recent heatwave that brought new weather patterns to parts of world unaccustomed to extreme heat.

Then the kids in the Extinction Diaries tell us about women African rangers who are saving species from extinction and arresting poachers without firing a single shot.

We're learning about our changing climate this week, and all of it is mixed with excellent music.
