We talk to the author of a new book that unpacks climate change and why there's still some denying the concept. And, we look at Chicago's boundary lines. Plus, the Soul Diva stops by for another installment of Reclaimed Soul.
For Global Activism, we’ll talk with Caeli Quinn, co-founder of ‘Climate Ride’. They organize rides and hikes to benefit sustainability-oriented non-profits. In September 2014, Climate Ride will have its their first Midwest event, a 300-Mile ride that starts in Grand Rapids, Michigan and ends at Chicago’s Northerly Island.
What happens 100 years from now if climate change has brought us to a point when water has become one of our scarecest resources, and more precious than oil or gold? We've asked fiction writers to imagine the Great Lakes region a century or more on, and help us paint an audio portrait of that world.
We talk about the new Sci-Fi genre that's shedding light on our environment's future. And, a look at why the city's mental health advocates are still seeking answers. Later, we hear classical tunes from students of the Suzuki Institute.
