Sundays at 6 p.m. on 90.7FM
Climate One Radio's National Magazine is a thriving leadership dialogue on energy, the environment and the economy. Episodes are comprised of three segments centering on a single theme. In each segment Greg Dalton hosts a conversation with leaders from business, government, academia and advocacy groups to advance the discussion about a clean energy future.
April 6 - Petropoly
Oil has powered the global economy for more than a century and helped lift generations out of poverty. But burning it is putting our future at risk as climate change causes extreme weather and sea level rise. In this hour we will hear who really sets gasoline prices and what it would take to give consumers a choice of fuels. We will also talk with Shell Oil President Marvin Odum about how to transition to a cleaner economy and tackle climate change. Finally, we will have a debate on the Keystone XL pipeline that would carry oil from the Canadian tar sands to refineries in Texas.
April 13 - Game Changer
Today we are looking at the impacts of climate disruption at home and abroad. Forest fires, floods, droughts and other extreme weather events are hitting the global economy. Those extreme events and the costs of cleaning them up, are starting to forge some common ground among Democrats and Republicans. We will talk power and politics with two former governors, two national strategists and the United Nations top climate negotiator.
April 20 - Fracked Nation
Today we drill into the fracking bonanza across America. Hydraulic fracturing - or fracking - is unleashing a torrent of cheap natural gas and oil supplies. It is also whipping up controversy. Supporters say natural gas can reduce carbon pollution that is driving wild weather. Opponents say it is causing more problems than it solves for the land, the water supply and global warming. The upside and downside of hydraulic fracturing.
April 27 - Speaking Youth to Power
As global carbon emissions continue to rise, some young people are getting anxious about their inheritance. In this hour, we will talk with students about creative initiatives they are involved with to advance the transition to a cleaner economy. And we will hear from parents who are working to raise climate awareness in schools. We will also be joined by an advertising executive, a filmmaker and a neuroscientist to learn how stories and facts influence people’s opinions about wild weather.
