OnePlanet: The Dry Lands of Texas

from One Planet· · 1 listeners

The state of Texas in the southern United States is experiencing the worst drought in its history - half a billion trees dead and billions of dollars lost in agricultural output. We speak to the ranchers and farmers threatened by the drought, and the planners and politicians trying to combat it. Plus, as the Republican primary season in the US heats up, we discuss why so many of the candidates are so hostile to environmental issues. And we hear from Denmark, where the world's largest wind turbine manufacturers have just announced large layoffs.
