The first half of today's program was Susan Franzen's interview with Chris Anderson, Assistant Director of the Climate Science Program at ISU, and Katharine Hayhoe, Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University, who will present the Earth Day Lecture, “Climate Urgency & How Farmers and Businesses Can Take the Lead”, an Iowa State University Lecture podcast broadcast by permission.
Pat Schlarbaum's phenology report was a tribute to Rachel Carson and her influence in the legislation that led to the survival of the Peregrine Falcon and its return to Iowa. Then Pat spoke with Larry Stone, Jon Stravers, and Mark Edwards about how Earth Day has developed in the past 25 years.
