American Public Media’s American RadioWorks Uncovers the Impact of Global Warming Right Now

Early Signs: Reports from a Warming Planet Broadcasts in November

(St. Paul, Minn.) November 7, 2006—American RadioWorks,® the award-winning documentary unit of American Public Media, today announced its current broadcast, "Early Signs: Reports from a Warming Planet."

The early signs of climate change are showing up across vastly differing landscapes: from melting outposts near the Arctic Circle to disappearing glaciers high in the Andes; from the rising water in the deltas of Bangladesh to the "sinking" atolls of the Pacific.

"Early Signs: Reports from a Warming Planet" takes listeners to parts of the planet where global warming is already making changes to life and landscape. The reports demonstrate how climate change is no longer restricted to scientific modeling about the future—it’s happening now.

TUNE IN: "Early Signs: Reports from a Warming Planet" will air on public radio stations nationwide in November.
