Paving Paradise: Vanishing wetlands
WELCOME TO RADIOACTIVITY. Iâ€™M ROB LOREI. Coming up today, weâ€™ll hear from two local authors who have written a new book about Floridaâ€™s vanishing wetlands. And later weâ€™ll hear from anti-genocide activist John Prendergast.
When European settlers first came to Florida- up to three quarters of Floridaâ€™s 35 million acres were under water at least part of the year. Whatâ€™s happened to those wetlands is the subject of a new book called Paving Paradise: Florida's Vanishing Wetlands and the Failure of No Net Loss.
Our guests are the authors Craig Pittman and Mathew Waite who are staff writers for the St. Petersburg Times.comments powered by Disqus
