The Down East Journal (09/05/14)

Sep 3, 2014

Large bodies of water like the Pamlico Sound absorb carbon dioxide like a sponge.  But when a tropical storm or hurricane hits, it agitates the water releasing extensive amounts of CO2 into the air.  This week on the Down East Journal, we speak to a coastal scientist about the harmful effects of “burping estuaries.”  And, we’ll talk about plans for a new children’s museum in Jacksonville.  The Down East Journal airs Friday at noon on all of the PRE stations.  And Saturday at noon on News and Ideas.
