What's Bugging You?

What's Bugging You October 21, 2014

Aired Tuesday, October 21 at 6 p.m. Fall is in full gear and so are the insect around us, so once again we invited Dr. Beverly Burden, Associate Professor of Biology at LSUS, and our resident Entomologist, to join host Bill Beckett for a discussion about our insect world, both friendly and fiendish. They discussed what's new in the insect world and took your calls and questions about "What's Bugging You" at 800-552-8502.
If you have a photo of an insect you'd like Dr. Burden to identify please send it to wbeckett@lsus.edu. We will use this on a future show.

Burn: Rising Seas

Burn: Rising Seas

Airs Sunday, November 17 at 6 p.m. You know all about that abundant, dirt-cheap fossil fuel that’s spurred the spectacular development of modern society? Turns out it’s not as cheap as we thought. Hydrocarbon energy releases enormous amounts of heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere, and the Earth’s oceans absorb about 80 percent of that heat. That means sea levels are rising, and they’ll continue to rise for hundreds of years to come. The next BURN explores sea-level rise in south Florida, along the Louisiana/Texas Gulf Coast, in New York City, and in Greenland. Visit the BURN web site here.

Program Two: Facing the Riding Tide

Even when we do understand climate change and it’s impacts, we often do nothing. Why is this? Part Two brings us portraits of two families, a farmer and a land developer. The Mellos and the Fosters provide two different answers to this question.

RISE: Climate Change and Coastal Communities

Airs Monday, August 6 at 8:00 p.m.
Program One: Sounding the Waters

Sea level rise and increasingly extreme weather patterns are two of the impacts of climate change. How are these phenomena created? What effects will they have on our coastlines? To what extent are we feeling them already? And what can we do to adapt to changing conditions? We explore these questions with a visit to San Francisco’s financial district and other spots around the Bay.
