Sea Level Rise: Blue Planet Forum
(Award-Nominated Encore)
Today we bring you a special encore presentation of a program nominated for "best public affairs documentary or program" at this year's Virginia Association of Broadcasters awards on June 24th.  This program originally aired in December 2010.  It's about sea level rise concerns.  If sea levels rise rapidly during the 21st century, as many scientists believe will happen, Old Dominion University would be among only a handful of large, research universities in the United States to face the threat of saltwater intrusions onto its lawns and into its campus structures. It was the topic of the Blue Planet Forum at ODU in December 2010.

Guests:
Dr. Larry Atkinson
- Oceanography Professor and Eminent Scholar
Del. Joe Bouchard (D-83rd District) - Virginia House of Delegates
Skip Stiles - Executive Director, Wetlands Watch
ADM David Titley (Recording) - Oceanographer and Navigator of the Navy and Commander of Task Force on Climate Change
