On January 26, Special K and I were scheduled to participate in an event at the Royal Ontario Museum called Carbon 14 – A Day of Dialogue – The Changing Arctic Landscape.  The Arctic government and policy makers are very concerned about the changes they anticpate in the arctic latitudes and have seen over the last several generations.  As a prelude to this, I visited the exhibit Climate is Culture at the museum where I viewed installations inspired by climate change.  My podcast today is a soundscape of my visit to that exhibit.

0-1:09 – Intro

1:09-5:01 –  What is the Polar Vortex?  Andrew Freedman on PBS Newshour from Climate Central

5:01 – 23:54 – Soundscene at the Climate is Culture exhibit

Special K and Ninja swing out on Easter Weekend to vist the Royal Ontario Museum’s exhibit on Darwin called The Evolution Revolution. It was fun for all ages, genders and mutations. You can read the complete text of Darwin’s voyage aboard the Beagle when he was a young man at Darwin’s Beagle Voyage. The Origin of The Species can also be read online.
