[Repeated from Friday 9am.] Global environmental news with Alex Smith. This week: America enters uncharted territory for pandemics, especially in the South, where it’s very hot, well over 100 degrees F, 38 C. An unusual dust storm from the Sahara may cool things down a bit, but adds more respiratory problems to millions of lungs already in danger from Covid-19. In a Woods Hole seminar last week, American scientist Zach Zobel projected the U.S. southern states will go well beyond the zone where humans can survive outside. No problem: everyone goes inside with air-conditioning - as long as the grid stays up. If the power goes out for more than a week or so, millions could flee north. That’s because more than a billion humans are already on the ventilator, breathing machine-driven air. As we’ll discover in the next three interviews, that isn’t sustainable, and only make the world hotter and hotter. This is a best of Radio Ecoshock replay: heading for air-conditioned hell.
