This 48 minute radio broadcast discusses how a switch between using fossil fuels - oil, coal, natural gas - with cleaner burning hydrogen might occur, thereby lowering production of the greenhouse gas (carbon dioxide) and stopping global warming. The show also considers a report published in the journal, Science, that says no new technology is needed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. There is discussion ... Full description.

These three twenty minute radio broadcasts discuss: a wrinkle-faced dinosaur from Africa; small mammals called solenodons; and the relationship between sleep and the brain. The wrinkle-faced dinosaur (Rugops primus) from Africa had cousins in South America and India, and could provide clues to how the ancient continents split. Paleontologist Paul Serreno discusses tracking continental drift through ... Full description.
