Here are descriptions from their website of a few of their Audio Shows related to Environmental Issues:

====>Click to hear "Water" 13 Oct 2006

With people, people, everywhere, will there be enough to drink? Increased demand for fresh water around the world means that some sources are running dry, leaving some areas with not enough fresh water to go around. More affluent areas are turning to untapped sources of water, including desalination and creative reuse or recycling of existing water sources. We'll talk about water policy here and around the world.

Director of the Global Water Policy Project Amherst, Massachusetts

====>Click to hear "Intersex Fish" 15 Sept 2006

Fish with both male and female sex traits have been pulled from the Potomac. We'll talk with a biologist about the discovery of these 'intersex' fish, and whether their discovery bodes ill for water quality.

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

====>Click to hear Dr. Sylvia Earle's Interview "Our Oceans in Trouble" 18 Nov 2005

Join Ira Flatow in this hour for a conversation with undersea explorer and marine biologist Dr. Sylvia Earle about the state of our oceans ...and a global plan for ocean conservation. Earle, one of the National Geographic Society's 'Explorers in Residence,' is known for her extensive underwater work -- to the point that she's been saddled with nicknames such as as "Her Deepness" and "The Sturgeon General." Dr. Earle has led more than 60 expeditions worldwide involving in excess of 7000 hours underwater in connection with her research. We'll get her perspective on the watery world around us.

====>Click to hear Click to Hear "Arctic Climate Expedition"

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.

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

====>"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.

====>"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.

====>Click to hear "Ecosystem Assessment" 22 April 2005

====>Click to hear "Packaging" 22 April 2005

A massive new United Nations report on the state of the Earth's ecosystems has just been released. After 4 years, a team of over 1300 scientists has published the results of a detailed look at ecosystems around the world, a project called the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment.

The researchers found that of the 24 'ecosystem services' they looked at (items such as capture fisheries, water supply, waste treatment and detoxification, regulation of erosion, and aesthetic enjoyment), 15 of the services were being degraded or used unsustainably. "The full costs of the loss and degradation of these ecosystem services are difficult to measure, but the available evidence demonstrates that they are substantial and growing," wrote the authors. The researchers also found that "over the past 50 years, humans have changed ecosystems more rapidly and extensively than in any comparable period of time in human history." In this hour of Science Friday, we'll take a look at the report, and what it might mean for Earth's inhabitants.

Plus -- paper or plastic? It's a question you might often face at the local supermarket. But what is the 'right' answer? And can we learn to live with less packaging?

The western prairies of Canada might be in for a very long dry spell. European immigrants started to settle the western prairies of Canada more than 100 years ago, and they did it during a time when water was abundant. Scientists say those prairies are now heading toward prolonged drought as a result of climate warming and other changes. In fact, the title of a recent article in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences described it as an "impending water crisis."

Meanwhile, the UN reports that 1.1 billion people don't have access to safe drinking water, which is turns causes 1.6 million deaths annually. The UN's Millennium Development Goal of halving the number of people without clean water by 2015 has a price tag of $ 15 billion, a fraction of what we spend on bottled water.
