Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Thursday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up today weâ€™ll met the director of the award winning film on global warming called CHASING ICE.
And weâ€™ll discuss evolution and altruismâ€”are humans wired to be altruistic- or is being selfish a natural habit- embedded in our DNA. Weâ€™ll also be taking your phone calls.
First up today- Jeff Orlowski is director of the film CHASING ICE- which will be shown several times over the next few days in the Bay area. The film looks at the real impact of climate change in some of the most remote parts of the world.
In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earthâ€™s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. Orlowski joins us live on the telephone.
And our next guest is Dr. Lee Dugatkin a professor of biology from the University of Louisville. He's an expert on evolutionary biology and he'll be speaking this afternoon and tomorrow at the University of South Florida Tampa campus.
