Dat On a Cool Tin Roof – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

Whether you believe global warming is caused by man or nature, according to NASA, 2014 was earth’s hottest year on record. One of the causes of our continued heating is the depletion of polar caps and other frozen surfaces. They help cool us not so much because they’re cold but because they’re flat and white and reflect the sun, bouncing its heat off of the earth. That is also the concept behind revolutionary reflective roofs.

Stacy Armitage joins Peter for lunch, too. Stacy works at the opposite end of the environment to the roof – on the ground and in the water. Stacy is Project Leader of the Southeast Louisiana Refuge complex, maintaining our wetlands for wildlife, recreation, and as a barrier against the effects of global warming.
