============== ============== ==============

====>Click to hear "Renewable Energy" 17 Nov 2006

Move over big oil. With a little push, we can get 25 percent of our energy from renewables such as wind and ethanol by the year 2025, according to a new report from the Rand Corporation.

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>Click to hear "Fish" 10 Nov 2006

A new study says we could see the end of seafood within 50 years, if we don't curb overfishing and ocean pollution. Whenever a species is lost, the authors of the study claim, the web of the ocean ecosystem unravels a bit faster, speeding its overall destruction. Critics of the study say it made some assumptions that won't hold up in the real world -- and even the study's authors say that it's not too late to stop the decline if we take action now.

============== ============== ==============

====>Click to hear "Religion and Climate Change" 20 Oct 2006

We'll also hear about a group of religious leaders banding together to face the issue of global climate change.

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>Click to hear "California's Global Warming Plan" 13 Oct 2006

California is getting tough on global warming, with a new state law sets strict standards on greenhouse gas emissions. The state is already known for stricter environmental standards in other areas. How will the state meet its goals ...and will its economy suffer?

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>Click to hear "Salmon Farming" 06 Oct 2006

does fish farming harm wild salmon? A new study suggests it might, finding that juvenile migrating wild salmon are becoming infected by sea lice as they pass salmon farms. "We counted sea lice on more than 14 thousand juvenile salmon migrating past fish farms, and conducted mortality experiments with more than 3 thousand fish," explained Martin Krkosek, one of the authors of the report, describing how the study was performed.

============== ============== ==============

====>Click to hear "Solar Power" 22 Sept 2006

Thanks to falling equipment costs, solar power is heating up. Join Ira and guests in this hour of Science Friday for a look at new technologies that are making solar power a more economical choice for meeting our energy needs.

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>Click to hear "Tree Genome" Sept. 15, 2006

We'll also talk about the first sequenced genome of a tree related to the poplar. Though scientists have sequenced other plant genomes, such as rice and arabidopsis, this is the first published genome of a big, woody, long-lived tree. Researchers think the finding could be a new milestone in the push for biofuels

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>Click to hear "Eating Locally" Aug. 25, 2006

When you sit down to dinner tonight, take a minute to consider how far your food traveled to get to your plate. Is your steak from Nebraska? Are your carrots from California? Your fruit from New Zealand? Sure, you bought it at the grocery store down the street, but chances are your food traveled hundreds of miles before it landed on your plate. This hour, Ira and guests consider our global grocery shopping. Experts say eating local might make us healthier and be better for the environment.

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>Click to hear "Congress and Science" Aug. 4, 2006

====>Click to hear "Corn for Fuel" Aug. 4, 2006

In this hour, we'll talk about whether Congress is getting the scientific expertise it needs to evaluate current issues like energy, climate change, public health and more. In 1995, Congress defunded the Office of Technology Assessment, which was created to provide Congress with independent, nonpartisan advice on scientific issues.One congressman says that there needs to be a new nonpartisan research group to take over where OTA left off. We'll talk about it.

Then we'll turn to the idea of making ethanol fuel for cars and industry from corn. One economist is worried that there won't be enough corn left over to feed people. Is ethanol the answer to our energy woes?

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>Click to hear "Wind Power" July 21, 2006

Plus, in more and more states, what's blowing in the wind is -- energy. Some states are embracing alternative energy and wind power. But the Department of Defense is concerned that wind turbines could block military radar. We'll find out how the DOD is affecting wind-farm development, and what environmentalists are doing in response

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>Click to hear "Amphibian Alliance" July 7, 2006

Plus, researchers around the world are teaming up to protect endangered frogs, and are calling for the formation of an 'Amphibian Survival Alliance.' The scientists behind the proposal, writing in the journal Science, say that about a third of the world's amphibians are currently threatened, and that between 9 and 122 of the world's 5,743 known species of amphibians have become extinct since 1980. We'll find about some of the problems facing amphibians and what might be done to help the animals survive. (for more information about the Amphibian Alliance, listeners can contact info@zooatlanta.org.)

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Wildfires and Climate Change" July 7, 2006

Plus, new research published this week in the journal Science says that global warming may be causing more intense wildfires in the western United States. The researchers found that increases in large wildfire activity in the western US over the past 25 years is 'strongly associated with increased spring and summer temperatures and an earlier spring snowmelt.' We'll talk to one of the authors of the report about the findings.

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Avian Influenza Update" July 30, 2006

====>"Crops and CO2" July 30, 2006

====>"Electric Car" July 30, 2006

In 1996, a fleet of electric cars began to hit the road in the United States, leased to drivers fo around $500 a month. But less than ten years later, only a few were left. Despite the please of some impassioned owners, General Motors chose to end the lease program, and took all the EV1 vehicles off the road. . Join Ira Flatow and guests in this hour of Science Friday for a look at the short-lived electric car, and a conversation with the director of a new film chronicling the vehicle's demise. Has the time for electric vehicles passed, eclipsed by other technologies?

We'll also get a bird flu update. Last week, researchers confirmed the human-to-human transmission of avian influenza, though health experts said that there were no signs that the virus had mutated into an easier-to-transmit form. We'll find out about that, and efforts to combat the bird flu.

Plus, new research into crops and carbon dioxide levels. More carbon dioxide may not help crop plants grow better.

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Greenhouse Gases and SCOTUS" July 30, 2006

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments on whether the federal government should regulate greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, under the Clean Air Act. Join Ira and guests in this hour of Science Friday for a look at the debate and how the court's decision could affect industries ranging from car makers and airlines to power companies. Is carbon dioxide a 'pollutant' in the traditional sense of the word?

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Arctic Climate Expedition" June 2, 2006

====>"New Nuclear Power" June 2, 2006

Would you believe that once upon a time, thanks to greenhouse gases, Arctic temperatures were balmy -- sometimes over 70 degrees Fahrenheit. In fact, new data obtained from an Arctic drilling expedition indicates that about 49 million years ago, the Arctic was green, with fresh surface water and ferns covering the water -- at least during the summer months. The finding, researchers say, indicates that they may have seriously underestimated the power of greenhouse gases to warm Arctic areas. The subseafloor sediment samples, gathered from 430 meters beneath the Arctic Ocean, also fill in gaps in the Earth's known climate history. We'll talk about the data, and what it means for more modern climate science.

Plus, why some environmentalists are warming up to nuclear power. Can new technologies such as the pebble bed reactor make nuclear power cleaner and safer than in the past? And how best should policy makers weigh the pluses and minuses of nuclear power, offestting reduced greenhouse gas emissions with the longterm safety and storage problems posed by nuclear wastes?

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Sustainable Cities and Ecological Urban Design" May 19, 2006

Around the country, cities are aging -- especially cities that built themselves around industries that are now long gone. This week, Syracuse town officials agreed to move forward with a proposed mega-mall called Destiny USA, which would rival the Mall of America in size. The developers of the mall promise that it will be 'green,' with all of its power coming from renewable sources, and that the mall has the potential to bring dollars and jobs back to the region.

In this hour of Science Friday, live from Syracuse, New York, Ira and guests talk about the challenge of revitalizing urban areas in sustainable, environmentally viable ways. How can aging towns remake themselves for the better, while protecting or improving air, water, and living conditions for the people who live there? How can cities revitalize themselves, while not destroying the things that make each city unique?

We'll also hear about 'urban forestry' and its effects on the urban ecosystem, and projects to clean up the Onondaga Creek and Onondaga Lake -- once called the most polluted lake in the nation.

============== ============== ==============

====>"Conservation, Renewable, and Alternative Energy in NY State" May 19, 2006

Governor George Pataki wants a quarter of New York State's electricity to come from renewable sources by the year 2013.. Is that possible -- and where will the power come from? Join Ira Flatow on Science Friday, live from Syracuse, for a look at New York State's efforts to become energy independent. Can wind and willows make NY greener?

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Coal Energy" May 12, 2006

Can coal help make the US more energy independent? Advocates say the United States is the "Saudi Arabia of coal," and that there's enough coal available here to supply our power for at least 250 years. Critics say burning more coal would be a disaster for our health and the environment. So is coal the energy of the future, or a thing of the past? In this hour, we'll take a look at coal, including technology proponents say can make burning coal cleaner.

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Surviving Coral Bleaching" April 28, 2006

We'll also hear about how corals survive bleaching ...by binging. Overly warm water can lead to a phenomenon known as 'coral bleaching,' in which the coral die and lose their pigmentation, leaving only ghostly skeletons behind. New research suggests that coral may be able to avoid some of the ill effects of too-warm water by significantly upping their food intake. Researchers found that by actively engaging in 'tentacle feeding' on small marine organisms, some coral may be able to resist bleaching events. We'll talk about it.

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Methanol Economy" April 28, 2006

====>"Nanotechnology Risks" April 28, 2006

This week, President Bush called for greater reliance on ethanol as a fuel source, along with increased use of alternative fuels such as biodiesel and hydrogen. Nobel Laureate George Olah says that the answer isn't ethanol or hydrogen--it's methanol. In this hour, we'll talk about the idea of a methanol economy and how it might wean us off oil.

We'll also take a look at what's known about the potential environmental and health risks of nanotechnology. What can be done to make sure that small tech doesn't lead to big problems?

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Mercury and Fish" April 14, 2006

Then, we'll turn our attention to the issue of mercury in fish. The US FDA and EPA have advised pregnant women, nursing mothers, women who may become pregnant, and nursing mothers not to eat fish that can contain high levels of mercury, such as shark, swordfish, king mackerel, and tilefish, and to limit consumption of many other fish due to potential mercury contamination. The agencies suggest limiting consumption of canned light tuna, for instance, to under 12 ounces a week. Reccomended consumption of albacore tuna, which can contain higher levels of mercury, is set at just 6 ounces a week.

Mercury is emitted into the air through various industrial processes, including burning coal. Bacterial and chemical reactions in the environment can convert mercury metal to methymercury, which can be absorbed by living things and which can bioaccumulate as it works its way through the food chain. Exposure at high levels can harm the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, and immune system. On the other hand, fish and shellfish low in saturated fat, and contain omega-3 fatty acids. So what's a person to do -- and what can be done to clean up the mercury in the environment?

============== ============== ==============

====>"Endangered Species/ Conservation Update Part 1" March 17, 2006 (Windows Media)

====>"Endangered Species / Conservation Update Part 2" March 17, 2006 (Windows Media)

In just over thirty years, the Endangered Species Act has saved hundreds of plants and animals from extinction. Now Congress wants to revise the law, and scientists aren't happy. Join guest host Joe Palca on Science Friday for the latest on the Endangered Species Act--and one of its success stories, the condor.

Plus, why setting aside land for conservation may actually undermine biodiversity -- and a new question over whether the ivory-billed woodpecker, long thought to be extinct, has really been rediscovered.

In his most recent radio address, President Bush said he wants to increase the use of nuclear energy in the US, including starting construction of new nuclear plants by the end of the decade. In this hour, we'll talk about nuclear power and its advantages and disadvantages. Can the public's safety and environmental concerns be answered?

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"New Species in New Guinea" Feb. 10, 2006

====>"Melting Glaciers" Feb. 10, 2006

The world's glaciers are falling victim to a warming planet. Join Ira in this hour of Science Friday for a conversation with author Mark Bowen and scientist Lonnie Thompson, who travels the world documenting shrinking mountain glaciers.

Plus, scientists discover a lost world in New Guinea. An expedition to the Foja mountain range in western New Guinea captured photos of several new species of birds, 20 new frog species, and four new butterfly species in the remote area.

The researchers from Conservation International also spotted a rare bird, the Berlepsch's Six-wired Bird of Paradise, last seen almost a century ago, and unusual plants, including rhododendrons with flowers six inches across. We'll talk with one of the explorers about the trip, and about the challenges in preserving such ecological treasures.

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Energy Options" Feb. 3, 2006

In his State of the Union address this week, President Bush said that the nation was 'addicted to oil.'

"By applying the talent and technology of America, this country can dramatically improve our environment, move beyond a petroleum-based economy, and make our dependence on Middle Eastern oil a thing of the past," said President Bush. In this hour of Science Friday, Ira and guests talk about America's oil dependence and some of our other energy options.

Could ethanol be one route to energy independence? What about wind power?

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Rebuilding New Orleans" Jan. 27, 2006

As plans are made to rebuild New Orleans and repair the city's flood protection system, some say the hardest hit areas of the city shouldn't be redeveloped. Join guest host Joe Palca in this hour of Science Friday for a discussion of scientists' views on rebuilding coastal Louisiana. Can engineering alone provide a big fix for the Big Easy?

Beyond the issue of whether levees can be built that will fully protect the city against future storms, some researchers are saying that wetland restoration needs to be an important part of any rebuilding effort. We'll talk about some of the factors involved.

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Space Junk" Jan. 20, 2006

Plus, litter in orbit. Over 9,000 discarded objects are orbiting the earth--everything from rocket bodies to pieces of exploded launch vehicles. Is space junk a threat to the commercialization of space? Can it be cleaned up?

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Climate Change and Frogs" January 13, 2006

====>"China's Future" January 13, 2006

At its current growth rate, experts say China's appetite for oil, grain, and paper, will soon outpace global production. Join Ira nad guests in this hour of Science Friday for a look at China's increasing influence on the world's economy and environment. Plus, tackling the problem of HIV/AIDS in China.

We'll also take a look at a new study that links climate change to frog extinction in the Central and South American tropics. We'll explore the connection and find out what it might mean for global biodiversity.

Copyright © 2006 Science Friday

============== ============== ==============

====>"Beyond Kyoto" Dec. 9, 2005

In 1997, representatives from around the world met to create the Kyoto Protocol on greenhouse gas emissions. Though many nations signed on to the Kyoto accord, the United States did not ratify the treaty. This week, representatives met in Montreal, to talk about what happens next, setting targets for on beyond the 2012 guidelines set out in the Kyoto agreement. In this hour, we'll get an update on the meeting. Will it produce a more successful agreement on climate change policy?
