Program 601: Looking for Rome; The End of Ice; Earth Day

Release Date: 05-16-2020

Description

Is it really too late? A mountain-climbing journalist explains why he says the accelerating effects of global warming have put the earth in hospice — and what it requires to turn it around. We'll also hear what the original Earth Day accomplished 50 years ago, and we'll take a closer look at Rome, where viewing more than 2,000 years of history can teach us a few things about our own civilization.

Guests

  • Rome-based tour guide Francesca Caruso
  • Dahr Jamail, author of "The End of Ice" (The New Press)
  • Commentary from Denis Hayes, president & CEO of the Bullitt Foundation
