From Smaller Industrial Cities to Raptors

Sunday, August 4, 2013 - 9:00pm

Many of the smaller industrial cities of America are in serious decline due to the forces of de-industrialization, outsourcing, globalization and white flight. Many of these medium-sized urban areas like Detroit, Buffalo, Grand Rapids and Akron have suffered decades of neglect because most of the national attention and money has gone to the big urban centers. But can there be a future for these cities? Tune in tonight when we talk with CATHERINE TUMBER, journalist, historian and Research Affiliate in the Community Innovators Lab in M.I.T.’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning. Her important new book is SMALL, GRITTY AND GREEN: THE PROMISE OF AMERICA’S SMALLER INDUSTRIAL CITIES IN A LOW-CARBON WORLD and it details her visits to twenty-five of these small cities and describes some of the new ideas that city leaders are implementing to re-imagine a productive and exciting future for these urban areas.

Tonight on Inquiry we welcome back internationally acclaimed birder, photographer and author RICHARD CROSSLEY. His identification guides are innovative, fun and like no other nature guides. With Jerry Liguori and Brian Sullivan, Richard has authored a new guide titled THE CROSSLEY ID GUIDE: RAPTORS. Tune in tonight and learn about hawks, accipiters and eagles, and how to identify them in flight.
