Trends in Climate Disruption, Hurricane Irma and SF Fringe

On Friday’s episode Salima Hamirani get in touch with Yvonne Helle, Country Director of the United Nations Development Program, on the ground in Haiti details the potential damage Irma might do to the already hurricane devastated nation.

To mark the beginning of SF Fringe, Salima speaks with two writers featured this year: Amy Mihyang Ginthe and Kim Chinh. Fringe seeks to highlight shows often left out of more mainstream theater worlds, some with progressive political themes that engage with race, immigrant legacies, and gender.

Shaye Wolfe, the Climate Science Director at the Center for Biological Diversity and Adam Frank, computational physicist and professor at the University of Rochester, discuss the trends emerging out of climate disruption and the escalation of extreme weather.
