In collaboration with...World Ocean Radio

Today we start a new collaboration with World Ocean Observatory and will be featuring weekly programmes from World Ocean Radio.  This is a weekly series of five-minute audio essays on a wide range of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects - hosted by W20's own Peter Neill.  Last week Superstorm Sandy ravaged the east coast of the United States, and reignited a conversation of changing climate and the impacts of what is happening to the ocean: acidity, sea level, temperature, polar ice and extreme weather - the subject of this week's feature. 

In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill asks, "What will it take for us to admit and respond to climate change as a formative force for our time?" and argues that the recovery from this storm must begin a new relationship with the ocean through new values, new structures, and new solutions for how we live and work along the coast and how we engage and respect the natural world we live in.
