Burn: Rising Seas, With Host Alex Chadwick

 
  

 9am and 8pm on the News Station

While all coastal cities face real trouble, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development says Miami is the most vulnerable in its assessment of threats to 50 major cities worldwide. Parts of Miami will be permanently flooded in as few as 15 years.burn logo primary

BURN host Alex Chadwick talks with people deeply involved in the issues of how and when sea-level rise will begin to inundate Miami, as well as the reasons why waters are rising so quickly along the Atlantic seaboard of North America.

To get firsthand reports on the rapidly melting ice sheets of Greenland (a significant cause of sea-level rise), BURN sends Neal Conan, former NPR host and reporter, with Gretel Ehrlich, longtime Greenland explorer and writer, to Greenland to meet with leading researchers.
