Daniel Swain in VICE: The Climate Scientist Who Is Demystifying Extreme Weather

Daniel Swain studies climate change at UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, and is dedicated to helping us understand our warming planet.

Whether hiding from the smoke or sheltering in place thousands of miles away from it, Americans doomscrolled their way through the latest evidence that climate change is real, here, and happening now. For Swain, weather is an obvious inroad into engaging people on climate change, as people are way more likely to respond to a fire or flood at their doorstep than a chart of rising emissions.
