Title: Arctic Melting
Url: http://thedianerehmshow.org/shows/2006-01-06
Publisher: WAMU-FM (Radio station : Washington, D.C.)
Description: In this radio broadcast, a panel of experts joins National Public Radio journalist Diane Rehm to discuss rising temperatures at the North Pole and what the melting may mean for the climate, national boundaries, and oil exploration. There is discussion of the 1982 U.N. convention, Law of the Sea, which is guiding new mapping due to arctic melting and changing coastlines; and why the decreasing need for Arctic ice-breakers is making oil exploration mapping easier. There is explanation of why the Antarctic may melt a couple of decades after the Arctic; why we know sea levels will rise as polar ice melts; and why we know humans are causing the melting, as opposed to astronomical configurations or other natural causes leading to melting cycles. The broadcast is 51 minutes in length, but the discussion about the Arctic starts 32 minutes into the program and lasts 19 minutes. You may listen to the archived broadcast in Windows Media or Real Audio format.
