IN REVERSE CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER… starting with our most recent show

2018 SEASON

Ozone Shield NOT Safe Scientists Say February 7, 2018 – The new science of ozone and UV-B is not pretty. The ozone threat is not solved, scientists say. From Zürich, lead author Dr. William Ball says Earth’s ozone shield against harmful radiation continues to weaken – despite an improvement of big ozone holes over the Poles. Thinning ozone is right over where most people, animals and plants live. It’s possible our smog is the last protection. But wait. Another study from University of California Berkeley says a weakened ozone shield 251 million years ago drove the mass extinction of forests, and all life that depended on them. Lead author Jeffrey Benca explains we underestimated the risk of significant harm from thinning ozone, and misunderstand the hidden process of mass extinction. All science from Radio Ecoshock.

Weather Bomb February 14, 2018 – Has the weather gone off the rails? Are we falling off a climate cliff already? Following another record year of “natural” catastrophes, Canadian climate scientist and You tube activist Paul Beckwith works over our tenuous situation. He’s got a Masters Degree.

Extreme Floods, City Heat & Politics January 31, 2018 – In this program, one of the world’s top scientists reports on the climate threat that will cause the most evacuations and maybe migration. It’s not heat or rising seas. From Germany, Dr. Anders Levermann from the Potsdam Institute joins us. From Australia, Dr. Mat Santamouris reveals shocking heat levels in cities and how to cool them. From Cambridge University, Dr. Laura Diaz Anadon warns politicized science endangers us all. Download or listen to this Radio Ecoshock show in CD Quality (57 MB) or Lo-Fi (14 MB)

The Psychology of Wrecking or Saving a Planet January 24, 2018 – How will human reaction to a climate shift feedback into a new future? Hot new science from Dr. Brian Beckage, University of Vermont, and psychologist Katherine Lacasse, Rhode Island College. Plus mental health impacts of knowing about a dysfunctional future, with Dr. Sabrina Helm, University of Arizona. What type are you? You know our weather has gone weird, as the climate begins to shift. Science has predicted what will happen, depending on how many more megatons of greenhouse gases we toss into the sky. But it’s not that simple. We have three guests here to explain. Download or listen to this Radio Ecoshock show in CD Quality (57 MB) or Lo-Fi (14 MB)

Under the Weather Right Now January 17, 2018 – From NOAA, research meteorologist Dr. Thomas R. Knutson on what we know about weird weather under climate change. The real science. Plus from the UK, Dr. Edward Hanna: has the warming Arctic disrupted all our weather? Download or listen to this Radio Ecoshock show in CD Quality (57 MB) or Lo-Fi (14 MB)

3 Radical Interviews January 10, 2018 – Your Food, Coral, and Free Portland – We have 3 interviews for you. Michael Brownlee: local foods as a climate lifeboat.

Back Under Protest January 3, 2018 – Here we go into a new year with a new climate. In this program we look back and forward with the remarkable Dr. Paul Salaman from Rainforest Trust. Content warning: a little optimism may creep in. Then one of the strangest outcomes on a warming planet: babies who experience even a short period of heat stress in the womb, will on average have a lower income 30 years later. Think about that, as we explore new science lead by Dr. Maya Rossin-Slater from the Stanford School of Medicine.
