Study Up For 'Think': Global Warming And Rising Seas

Over the past century, we've managed to warm the Earth by more than a degree Fahrenheit with heat-trapping emissions. And sea levels hiked with the temperature - about eight inches, in fact. What will this ongoing trend mean for America's coastal cities, which had a taste of destruction during Superstorm Sandy? At noon on Think, we'll hear from science writer Tim Folger about how we could adopt and adapt ideas from the world's flood-endangered islands. He wrote the cover story "Rising Seas" for the September issue of National Geographic, in which these photos appear. 

Listen to Think from noon to 2 p.m., and again from 9 to 11 p.m., Monday through Thursday on KERA 90.1 FM or stream if you like
