CAMPAIGN: Sea Change Radio Sustainability Innovators

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

This week on Sea Change Radio we are talking about the California drought – getting an update on weather-related aspects, and finding out about an innovation designed to help. First we talk to Anthony Artusa, a meteorologist from the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center. He gives us a sense of what to expect from the current El Niño year and what it may or may not mean to California long-term. Then we talk to Peter Brewitt who recently wrote about the millions of plastic shade-balls being used in LA’s main reservoir to try to slow evaporation – might this potentially controversial innovation provide a lasting solution?
