BURN Energy Journal: Rising Seas

Host Alex Chadwick

Sea level rise is just one of the ugly faces of climate change. A dangerous one too. Especially for the US, which has 20 of the most threatened coastal cities in the world.

We visit south Florida, the Gulf Coast, New York City, and Greenland, where ice-melt is going to make the world a very different place.

Freakonomics Radio - How much does your name matter?

When Harvard Professor LaTanya Sweeney typed her name in Google one day, she noticed something strange:  an ad with the heading: "LaTanya Sweeney arrested?"  But, she never had been arrested -- and neither had the only other LaTanya Sweeney in the U.S.  Why did the ad suggest so?  In this episode of Freakonomics Radio, host Stephen Dubner investigates the latest research on names and what  your name says about your economic status, race and even political preference.   Friday, August 16, 8pm on KWGS 89.5 HD1.
