7:30 PM: Sustainable East End: Francesca Rheannon

This month, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issued a revised flood-control plan to defend eastern Long Island’’s southern coast from devastating storms. The Fire Island to Montauk plan calls for elevating homes, replenishing dunes, restoring marshes, and dredging ocean inlets. The plan calls for elevating houses, or relocating basement utilities in others. Some houses would be rebuilt, and flood barriers would be erected around others. Six miles of roads would be turned into dikes. But some observers say the plan fails to take sea level rise into account. We talk to Kevin McAllister of Defend H2O, a non-profit concerned with coastal zone management and water quality. Sustainable East End is heard on the 3rd Wednesday each month at this time. The programs are archived at SustainableEastEnd.blogspot.com and will soon be available at WPKN podcasts.

Then, the Rio Olympics are happening now, in a Brazil plagued by corruption, conflict and a de facto coup against president Dilma Roussef. We re-air our October 2015 interview with Juliana Barbassa about her book, Dancing With The Devil In The City of God: Rio de Janeiro on the Brink. It’s about how the preparations for the Olympic Games revealed the cracks in the Brazilian miracle.
