24 Hours of Reality: The Dirty Weather Report on November 14-15th has exciting, essential programming you won't want to miss.
Let's face it: The weather is different than it used to be. Record heat waves make it a chore to go outside. Floods and rainstorms damage our homes and cities. Crops wilt under severe droughts. Hot, dry weather feeds widespread fires.
This is the extreme weather you see almost every day on the news - or out your window. And because of man-made climate change, we can expect it to happen a lot more often. This is Dirty Weather
The Emerald Ash Borer is an introduced insect pest from Asia that feeds on and kills ash trees. These insects cut off the flow of water and nutrients within the trees by feeding underneath the bark. All species and sizes of ash trees (genus: Fraxinus) are susceptible, except for the mountain ash (Sorbus spp.) which is not a true ash. If a tree has become infested with EAB, mortality will result, usually within 2-3 years.
