Sunday, April 2 at 8 am. As Buffalo Springfield sang in 1967, “There’s something happening here…” But today’s youth revolution is happening far beyond the Sunset Strip.

Sunday, March 5 at 8 am. The story of the American West is deeply rooted in the Colorado River, which delivers fresh water to seven thirsty states before crossing the border into Mexico.  But every year, 41 million Americans take more water out of the Colorado than nature puts into it.         

Compassion is a universal virtue, but is it innate or taught? Have we lost touch with it? Can we be better at it?

It is the iconic image of Napa and Sonoma -- neat rows of grapevines. But how long will it last? As temperatures  rise, scientists warn many classic wine growing regions will become less viable. At the same time, new land will become ripe for grape growing, possibly creating problems for the wildlife currently there. As KRCB's Danielle Venton  reports, climate scientists and wine makers say now is the time to start preparing.

At times during the winter and early spring it looks like a vast inland sea between Sacramento and Davis. This is the Yolo Bypass, which shunts Sacramento River floodwater around the state capital during high flows. You drive over the bypass on a three-mile-long elevated stretch of Interstate 80 known as “the Causeway” (the Blecher-Freeman Memorial Causeway). The bypass is also the site of a lot of innovative fish and wildlife work.

New eyes on the Pineapple Express

Dec 6, 2012

Every year California about half of the precipitation, and almost all of the flooding, results from just a handful of intense storms... like the "Pineapple Express." At the American Geophysical Union meeting this week in San Francisco, scientists announced the installation of a new network of sensors and observatories to predict how hard these storms will hit.

Bodega Bay will soon be home to the first of four "atmospheric river observatories." KRCB's Danielle Venton has the story.
