Behind The Lens
 

Behind The Lens episode 2: ‘A city like New Orleans has an expiration date.’

According to an alarming new report by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the world is running out of time to get global warming under control. It’s a warning that’s particularly important for Southeastern Louisiana, where rising sea levels threaten to worsen coastal land loss.

In episode two of our podcast Behind The Lens, producer and host Tom Wright interviews Torbjörn Törnqvist, a professor of earth and environmental sciences at Tulane University, about the report and what’s in store for Louisiana’s disappearing coast.

Tom also talks to Lens attorney Scott Sternberg about fake subpoenas and the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal’s ruling for The Lens in our public records lawsuit against Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro. And reporter Marta Jewson discusses a bizarre incident involving a New Orleans charter school teacher and the school officials who, she says, would not let her leave her classroom when she tried to resign.

Behind The Lens is now available on Apple Podcasts.
