Smog Cloud Silver Lining Radiolab

Summer 2023 was a pretty scary one for the planet. Global temperatures in June and July reached record highs. And over in the North Atlantic Sea, the water temperature spiked to off-the-chart levels. Some people figured that meant we were about to go over the edge, doomsday. In the face of this, Hank Green (a long time environmentalist and science educator behind SciShow, Crash Course, and more), took to social media to put things in context, to keep people focused on what we can do about climate change. In the process, he came across a couple studies that suggested a reduction in sulfurous smog from cargo ships may have accidentally warmed the waters. And while Hank saw a silver lining around those smog clouds, the story he told—about smog clouds and cooling waters and the problem of geoengineering—took us on a rollercoaster ride of hope and terror. Ultimately, we had to wrestle with the question of what we should be doing about climate change, or what we should even talk about.Special thanks to Dr. Colin Carson and Avishay Artsy.

Charlotte Moore Sitterley StarDate Podcast

During her days at Swarthmore College, Charlotte Moore found out two things: she was really good at mathematics, and she didn’t like teaching. Those realizations led to a long career in astronomy and physics. Moore was born 125 years ago yesterday, in Pennsylvania. Her parents were teachers, and they encouraged her to get a good education. She earned a degree in math from Swarthmore. She worked as a substitute teacher to pay her way, but she didn’t like the experience. Moore got a job at Princeton as a “computer” — she did the tedious calculations that today are done by electronic computers. She worked for Henry Norris Russell, a leading astronomer. They published many papers on binary stars and the chemistry of the stars. In 1931, Moore moved to Mount Wilson Observatory in California. She studied the Sun — especially sunspots. She came up with the first good idea of the temperatures of the dark blotches, which are much cooler than the surrounding gas. While in California, she also earned her PhD, in astronomy. Moore later returned to Princeton, where she worked with Norris. She married a fellow scientist, Bancroft Sitterley. And she developed reference tables for the chemical elements that are still in use today. Charlotte Moore Sitterley finished her career at the National Bureau of Standards. Yet she continued to work for decades after retiring — all the way up to her death, at age 91. Script by Damond Benningfield Support McDonald Observatory
