Many Chicagoans count on air conditioning at work to offer a small reprieve. But what about those who pay their electricity bills by working outside?<em> Eight Forty-Eight</em> asked people who work outside how they beat the heat on the job.</p><p>Then <em>Eight Forty-Eight</em> revisited a conversation with Eric Klinenberg, author of<em><a href="http://www.press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/chicago/H/bo3641018.html" target="_blank"> Heat Wave: A Social Autopsy of Disaster in Chicago</a></em>, examining the 1995 Chicago heat wave, when tempuratures soared to 106 and left over 700 people dead. The book conducts a "social autopsy," to examine how and why so many died in the city.</p><p><em>Music Button: The Mercury Program, "Egypt" from the release A Data Learn the Language (Tiger Style)</em></p></p> Wed, 20 Jul 2011 13:19:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-07-20/chicago-braces-extreme-heat-89392
