New Documentary Tackles Warming Climate in the Midwest


Congress has now passed major climate change legislation as part of the Inflation Reduction Act. With excessive heat waves, wildfires and droughts, we’ve been hearing more about the effects of a warming planet.  As they did last year in our series about the Santa Fe Trail, documentarian Dave Kendall and KPR Commentator Rex Buchanan are teaming up to explore the local impact of a warming world. They recently spoke with Doug Kluck, the regional director of climate services for NOAA – the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – at his office in Kansas City.  

That's Doug Kluck, the regional director of climate services for NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. He was speaking with Rex Buchanan. Kluck's office serves 14 states, including Kansas and Missouri. Learn more about the changing climate at the NOAA website  More information about the National Weather Service training center is available here. Documentarian Dave Kendall, of Prairie Hollow Productions, is currently producing a new documentary on the effects of climate change in the Midwest called Hot Times in the Heartland. Learn more at
