Sea level rise is just one of the ugly faces of climate change. A dangerous one too. Especially for the US, which has 20 of the most threatened coastal cities in the world. With reports and interviews from the beaches of Southern Florida, the glacier fields of Greenland, the coastal wetlands of Louisiana and the streets of New York City, Rising Seas takes an in-depth look at the potentially devastating impact of sea-level rise on two major American cities in addition to the Gulf Coast’s vulnerable marshlands and its oil and gas industry. The special also captures the sights and sounds of Greenland’s ice sheets, which are melting more rapidly than anyone had anticipated, unleashing huge quantities of water into the North Atlantic. That, in turn, is driving the unusually fast sea rise along the coast.

You may have noticed that Soundcheck has been a little less active than normal this week, and that's because we've been unable to get to our offices both during and immediately after Hurricane Sandy. Fortunately, everyone on the Soundcheck team fared the storm pretty well, and at this point, we're all getting a little bit stir-crazy at home.
We decided to put together a playlist, and since today is October 31st -- well, it's a spooky one. So whether your Halloween plans are proceeding as normal -- or they've been scrapped due to the aftermath of the hurricane -- enjoy this creepy collection.
