Climate Change: Will CO2 help farms?

For years, researchers studying the effects of climate change on agriculture have focused on two big issues: the availability of water and the impact of increasing carbon dioxide levels in our atmosphere. Carbon dioxide released from our cars and factories is the number one cause of global warming. But scientists have long theorized that more of the gas in the atmosphere could actually help grow bigger plants. New research is challenging that assumption. David Sommerstein went to the breadbasket in Illinois to learn more.  Go to full article

Climate Change will alter Northeast

40 scientists from across the Northeast have collaborated to project the region's climate through the end of the century. The conclusion of the Northeast Climate Impacts Assessment, released last June, is that the very character of the Northeast is in danger. Cameron Wake is one of the team's co-leaders. He's a researcher at the University of New Hampshire's Climate Change Center. Wake told David Sommerstein the scientists used two future scenarios.  Go to full article

Spring fire season sparks brush blazes

State officials have raised the fire danger in the Adirondack North Country to "high." Local fire squads and forest rangers with the Department of Environmental Conservation have already battled more than a dozen brush fires from Altona in Clinton County to Argyle in Washington County. The biggest blaze burned fifty acres over the weekend in the Flat Rock State Forest in Clinton County. A fire on the summit of Cobble Mountain in Warren County drew more than fifty firefighters. Brian Mann checked in with forest ranger Captain John Streif, who says all open burning should stop until fire conditions change.  Go to full article

Inuit tell of warming Arctic

The Arctic is among the regions hit hardest by early climate change. Inuit artists from Nunavut, Labrador and other Arctic territories are eyewitnesses to warmer winters. They gather in Ottawa twice a year for meetings of the Inuit Art Foundation. Lucy Martin spent an afternoon with the artists last April. They told her their lives are already changing. Note: The Inuit Art Foundation artists return to Ottawa for their "Arts Alive" celebration this Saturday, April 21, from 10 to 4.  Go to full article

"Poor man's fertilizer"

Spring snow. It effects people in different ways. Some try to see our recent weather in a positive light. And because this is the North Country - where spring snow is just another symptom of the region's famous cold - people have special names for this weather.
North Country Public Radio gave listeners a chance to share some of those names. And that led Jonathan Brown to a series of conversations with people across the region.  Go to full article
