The Big Picture, Like It or Not (Repeat)
Dr. Tim Garrett, University of Utah Atmospheric Scientist
In “best of” Radio Ecoshock interviews, Dr. Tim Garrett says civilization must collapse to avert devastating climate change. Dr. Peter Ward says Nature may not have friendly plans for us. The first Garrett interview was recorded for Radio Ecoshock February 5, 2010. The second, introducing a new scientific paper partly inspired by our first conversation, was on the November 19, 2010 program. The Peter Ward interview is from October 16, 2009. Find my blog about this program, with more links and video, here. This program was rebroadcast by 100 non-profit radio stations on 3 continents in the week of July 3, 2019.
EXTREME HEAT #1
As Alaska bakes, East sizzles, Europe smashes records, here comes the first in a new compilation of Radio Ecoshock interviews on heat – how it kills, how it affects us all. Interview with Vladimir Tchuprov in Moscow during 2010 heat wave: 15 lessons for all of us in a hotter world. Plus Australia’s John Cook and a food warning from Lester Brown. A new compilation from the best of Radio Ecoshock, broadcast July 10, 2019.
EXTREME HEAT #2: How it kills and who
Earth is heating faster than expected. Deadly heat in India, unheard-of heat in France and Alaska. The Arctic is thawing out. The U.S. East Coast is roasting over 100 degree F. Around the world, people have died and many more will be killed by heat in the future. But how does heat kill? and who? Three experts explain what we all need to know, in the second of my series on Extreme Heat: Elizabeth Hanna, Robert Kopp and Jonathan Patz. A new compilation from the best of Radio Ecoshock, broadcast July 17, 2019.
EXTREME HEAT #3 Who, What, Why
As warming ramps up, billions are suffering through extreme heat. Learn who, what, and why through our three scientists: from Hawaii, Camilo Mora, author of “27 Ways a Heat Wave Can Kill You”; from Australia Mat Santamouris on extreme urban hotspots and how to cool cities; and from Italy Simone Russo, the science of increasing heat waves across the world. A new compilation.
The Climate Hammer: Rising Seas #1
Rising seas: that is the climate hammer that will hit us hard and soon. Our guests are Professor and author Peter Ward on “Flooded Earth”; scientist J. Court Stevenson talks flood defenses for world cities, along with author Mike Tidwell, who predicted the big ones – all from the Best of Radio Ecoshock collection. Dive in.
Rising Seas #2: Rolling Over Us
Sea level will go up all during your lifetime, and long, long after. The effects will be profound. In this show, the grand old man of coastal science Dr. Orrin Pilkey warns: start withdrawing from the coast-line now, or wait for the coming panic. Risk expert Bill McGuire explains how more water in the ocean can trigger earthquakes and tsunamis. NOAA scientist Richard Feeley talks ocean acidification.
The Climate Hammer: Rising Seas #3
The ocean will flow relentlessly inland on almost every coastline in the world. In this special Rising Seas #3, American oceanographer John Englander, author of “High Tide on Main Street” explains the great march inland of rising seas. Scientist Eelco Rohling says a sea level rise 3 meters – 10 feet – per century could happen. Texas scientist Pankaj Khanna shows the sea can rise many meters in a single century. A new collection.
The Harsh Realities of Now (Summer 2019 Replay)
The most downloaded Radio Ecoshock program ever! – David Wasdell, head of the Apollo-Gaia Project, returns to Radio Ecoshock with devastating revelations about how climate science has been manipulated or ignored by the IPCC, and by the leaders meeting in Paris. We are committed to far more than 2 degrees of warming. A vastly changed world awaits. Interview by Alex Smith of Radio Ecoshock.
Hot Methane, Hot Science (replay)
More dangerous warming methane is pouring into the atmosphere. UK scientist Euan Nisbet tells us where it is coming from, and no, not from the Arctic. First the visionary scientist Thomas Crowther from ETH Zurich on carbon, warming, the Arctic, and a plan to plant a trillion trees to help stabilize the climate.
