This week on Radio Ecoshock we are going way back, to see the big future. Dr. Peter Ward returns to explain the four past mass extinctions caused by global warming.
Rutgers scientist Morgan Schaller talks about a startling new discovery: around 55 million years ago, Earth warmed by 5 degrees C, or 9 Fahrenheit, in just 13 years. That's what can happen.
We wrap up with the struggle to stop this fossil fuel madness. Stephanie Goodwin from Greenpeace reports on the Arctic 30 - the entire ship and crew seized by the Russian government and imprisoned for months, charge with piracy. Their crime: trying to bring your attention to the new wave of dangerous drilling in the Arctic.
