Starving Baby Seals, Climate Change, and Parenting

There’s a crisis on the coast — hundreds of starving baby seals and sea lions washing ashore. Could it be the sign of a larger ecological collapse? We air a special report on efforts to save the seals, and talk to one of the scientists trying to figure out why it’s happening. Plus: a new report says spending more time with your kids . . . may not really matter. Whaaaa?

Guests on this program:

  • David Checkley, Biological Oceanographer at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla
