"Sea level rise is one of those issues that seems far away for the public," said Paul Rogers, managing editor for QUEST. "It's also been clouded by huge amounts of misinformation and political spin. We wanted to show that scientists have documented that it's already happening, and that it is going to have direct effects on the Bay Area and other coastal communities which will cost billions of dollars in the decades ahead." Kathy Sawyer, a freelance science writer formerly with The Washington Post, said the entry was "a nicely executed zoom-in from a global perspective to a regional close-up of the encroaching seas."

"Japan's Killer Quake"

30 March 2011

In a gripping account of the aftermath of the 11 March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the broadcast team looked at the impact of the disaster and the search for answers by scientists in the field. Harris said that the producers "moved with astonishing speed to tell the story of a still-unfolding disaster." Richard Hudson, director of science production for Twin Cities Public Television, said the program used "breathtaking footage not seen in other broadcasts" and offered an "excellent treatment of the drama and the underlying science." Robert Strange, executive producer for Pioneer Productions, said the logistics for the program were challenging, given the short turnaround time, and praised "the willingness of respected members of the scientific community to investigate and publicly explain the causes and consequences of the disaster, even at the risk of placing themselves in considerable personal danger."
