Interview with Daniel Chamovitz, author of "What a Plant Knows"

Does a rosebush know when you stand next to it?  Can an oak tree see a sunset?  What does a poplar smell? How does a tomato plant know down from up?  Join host Stephanie Potter and Daniel Chamovitz author of What a Plant Knows, A Field Guide to the Senses. "After reading this book you will never again walk innocently past a plant or reach insensitively for a leaf.  You will marvel at and be haunted by a plant's sensory attributes and the shared genes between plant and animal kingdoms."  -- Elizabeth Tova Bailey, author of The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating

Short Description: 
John Copp joins Abe and Joe to discuss Alaska's proposed Pebble Mine.

Alaska's proposed Pebble Mine is a textbook case of ecological health vs. economic gain. A rich vein of porphyry copper, gold, and molybdenum lies beneath Soutwest Alaska, and a multinational mining corporation wants to dig a hole two miles wide to get at it. Problem is, the mine would lie on Bristol Bay, through which passes about half the world's population of sockeye salmon.

Portland's John Copp, a former Bristol Bay fisherman, joins Abe and Joe to discuss the mine's prospective impact on the bay's ecosystem.
