First hour: Trump and Russia

Second hour: Carbon capture, and how it relates to climate change

We sort out the substance from the noise surrounding Donald Trump's relationship with Vladimir Putin. Our guest is Dr. Randy Stone, director of the Skalny Center for Polish and Central European Studies at the University of Rochester. Stone will explain which issues concern him regarding Trump and Russia, and which do not. We'll talk about Trump's recent comments regarding Crimea and defending NATO allies as well.

In our second hour: It's our monthly Science Roundtable, and the focus is on carbon capture and storage as it relates to climate change. What would carbon capture mean to the fossil fuel industry? Is the technology available and scaleable? How does it work? Our guests will explain:

  •  Bill Jones, professor of chemistry at the University of Rochester, and associate editor for the Journal of the American Chemical Society
  • Richard Eisenberg, professor emeritus of chemistry at the University of Rochester, and editor-in-chief for Inorganic Chemistry
