Friday on Lake Effect: Planetary Boundaries, Words With No English Translation, Fine Arts Quartet

Friday on Lake Effect:

A Wisconsin scientist co-authors a landmark paper, warning human civilization on earth could be nearing a cliff. We’ll find out what he means. Later, we’ll learn some remarkable foreign words that have no direct English translation – but are worth knowing, anyway. And a wonderful in-studio performance from Milwaukee’s Fine Arts Quartet.
