7. Permafrost peatlands and mental health with Dr. Merritt Turetsky

Dr. Merritt Turetsky (CU Boulder, INSTAAR) joins the pod to talk about permafrost peatlands! We talk about the unique qualities of permafrost peatlands and the sad reality that many of them are disappearing due to anthropogenic (aka human-caused) climate change. Merritt explains the state of the science and why it’s unlikely that permafrost peatlands will be a “Carbon Bomb” in the future. We also chat about mental health and the importance of self-care and setting boundaries.
