MONDAY: Cathy Kling, Nancy Rabalais, and Eugene Turner on the Gulf's "Dead Zone" + Bernie Pinsonat
Professor Cathy Kling of Iowa State University, Nancy Rabalais of the Louisiana Marine Consortium, and Professor Eugene Turner of LSU's Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences join the show for the first two segments to discuss the Gulf of Mexico's "Dead Zone." The three of them have been co-authors on recently published journal reports on the "Dead Zone" and they discuss and explain the causes of it, the impacts of it (both economically and environmentally), as well as ways to help reduce it.
Also, pollster Bernie Pinsonat joins us in studio to close out today's show. He and Jim discuss the upcoming November elections in Louisiana, as well as the recent remarks from Governor Bobby Jindal on his bid for the White House.
