Climate change: On the Thursday, October 25 edition of The Iowa Journal

October 22, 2007

(Johnston, Iowa) – Thursday’s episode of The Iowa Journal will explore the effects of global climate change on Iowa. The program airs Thursday, October 25 at 8:30 p.m. The program will be rebroadcast Friday, October 26 at 9:30 p.m. on statewide IPTV-Plus and will also be available online at Iptv.org.

The 2007 Nobel Peace Prize went to Vice President Al Gore for his work in familiarizing the public with the concept of Global Warming. The prize also went to a committee of hundreds of scientists who’ve contributed to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The Iowa Journal will explore what the Iowa scientists on that panel have found, and how it applies to life in Iowa in the coming decades.

During the Out and About segment, correspondant Dan Kaercher takes viewers to a few traditional and not-so-traditional places to see art in the Des Moines metro area.

The episode also features Kay Henderson, news director for Radio Iowa, offering news analysis.
