Today we explore how mountains and forests are being impacted by climate change and, in turn, affecting our health. An economist and a doctor connect a rise in Dengue fever and a rise in the temperature of the Earth. A corporate consultant and an environmental advocate explain how planting trees is good for business. And a professional snowboarder says the demise of ski slopes is motivating skiers to launch into action on climate volatility.

Airing Thursday at 9:00 a.m. during SON's week of hiatus.
