Title: Losing the Clean Sweep
Url: http://ewradio.org/program.aspx?ProgramID=4084
Creator: Katt-Reinders, Elizabeth
Publisher: University of Wisconsin--Madison. Sea Grant College Program
Description: This radio broadcast deals with the potential effects of climate change on air pollution, particularly the 'smog' that develops in the summer in the Northeast and Midwest. A research chemist discusses her work in this area, which suggests that summer smog might become more intense and persist later into the season if cold fronts from Canada, which typically sweep away the pollution, become less common in the future. The clip is 2 minutes in length, and may be downloaded in MP3 format or streamed via the website.
