There’s a stretch of homes right on the shoreline looking out at estuaries, the Oakland Airport, and Coliseum. The waterline isn’t quite at my feet right now, but in less than a century I’d likely be standing in water up to my shoulders.</p><p> Thu, 24 Jul 2014 00:00:00 +0000 Laura Flynn 47007 at http://kalw.org Holding back rising sea levels in the City of Alameda Your Call: How is the divestment movement changing our energy future? http://kalw.org/post/your-call-how-divestment-movement-changing-our-energy-future <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Mon, 09 Jun 2014 07:04:28 +0000 Malihe Razazan 44929 at http://kalw.org Your Call: How is the divestment movement changing our energy future?

She describes it as an “optimistic book about extinction.” In it, she looks at how humans could deal with a catastrophe along the lines of what killed the dinosaurs. She says one thing we need is strong, resilient cities – and that San Francisco is a model for the world. </span>Newitz<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> spoke with </span>KALW’s<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Casey Miner about adaptation, innovation, and what we can learn from the time local developers almost turned the Bay into a landfill.</span></p><p> Fri, 28 Feb 2014 00:34:11 +0000 Casey Miner 32162 at http://kalw.org Why San Francisco is poised to save the future – right now Today on Your Call: Media Coverage of Climate Change http://kalw.org/post/today-your-call-media-coverage-climate-change <p></p><p> Fri, 03 Jan 2014 07:13:44 +0000 Malihe Razazan 37921 at http://kalw.org Today on Your Call: Media Coverage of Climate Change Today on Your Call: What are Transition Towns? http://kalw.org/post/today-your-call-what-are-transition-towns <p> Tue, 12 Nov 2013 07:25:56 +0000 Malihe Razazan 35751 at http://kalw.org Today on Your Call: What are Transition Towns?
