Tip of the Iceberg

Boston Calling
Scientists recently issued a dire new warning about global sea-level rise tied to the melting of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. We hear from a longtime NASA researcher, who takes us on an audio journey there. Then, we head to southern Florida, where rising seas are driving a wedge between Republican mayors and their national party. And we stay in the Sunshine State to learn about the murky link between a former Brazilian football official and a multi-million dollar Florida home. Plus: the many uses of the word ‘inshallah’; a California dreamer’s plan for a feminist paradise in South America; and the piano man of Mexico’s famed Copper Canyon.
