"Dangerous" Climate Change

  • Effects of Global Warming on Plants and Animals Worldwide. 10 January 2003. Dr. Terry Root is interviewed by Ira Flatow on Talk of the Nation - Science Friday (a program on National Public Radio). She outlines a recent article she wrote with her colleagues that appeared in Science on the effects of global warming on plant and animal communities. (RealPlayer -- Dr. Root's segment begins at 14:45 minutes into the show, so when connected advance the RP slider to that point)
  • The Future and Natural Disasters. 19 November 2002. Steve Schneider and other scientists are interviewed on EarthBeat, a radio program produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
