On Monday night: The world is getting warmer. The weather is getting weirder. And in Alaska, we have a front row seat. Last season, we looked back — at the state’s roller-coaster history with oil. This time, we’re looking forward, to one of the biggest question marks ahead: climate change. Listen to Season Two of Midnight Oil: The Big Thaw from Alaska’s Energy Desk, compiled for radio in two, one-hour specials. Part 2 of 2 airs Monday, February 25 at 7:00 p.m.
That’s Juneau Afternoon on Monday: 3 p.m. on KTOO 104.3 FM, and repeated at 4 p.m. on KRNN 102.7 FM.
