Lead in our drinking water. Pesticides on our fruits and veggies. Agricultural runoff in our rivers and streams. Bad plastics. Harsh detergents. The list of everyday environmental health hazards is long. And in an perfect world, we'd all know where to focus our most earnest worrying. But it's hard to know what's really dangerous and what's not.
Coming up, Where We Live, two Yale researchers join us to talk about how modern life is changing ecosystems and how those changing ecosystems are changing us. David Skelly will share some of his research on Connecticut's frog population and John Wargo brings some thoughts from his new book, Green Intelligence.
