Berkeley Earth in Conversation with Atmospheric Scientist Dr. Christa Hasenkopf

Studies estimate that the impacts of air pollution account for upwards of 5% of annual global GDP, and yet annual funding to address air quality averages around only $30million annually.

As April marks the beginning of Earth Month, Berkeley Earth is focusing on the significant role that air quality data and analysis plays in improving both environmental and health outcomes worldwide.

In the second episode of our interview series Berkeley Earth in Conversation, we speak with atmospheric scientist, and air quality open data advocate Dr. Christa Hasenkopf about the importance of open-source air quality data, and the outsized impact that funding streams for air pollution infrastructure can have on tackling air inequality and improving health outcomes.
