Today I'll be talking about the breach at Old Inlet, just south of Bellport in the Bellport Bay. There is a lot of controversy over this new cut that Superstorm Sandy made last October. Here are some links and other info you may find useful if you are interested in this topic:

So if it isn't the breach, what is it? Here's one theory: http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/imageo/2013/02/14/east-coast-sea-level...

It's not just the south shore bays! Check out these video clips from NJ and MA:

First advice for the day is to be sure to take 90 seconds to pause and reflect on the beauty of the snow filled morning Mother Nature has presented us today! Then give yourselves a few extra minutes to get to work because it is snowing out there and temps are right at the freezing point.

Start off with Pink Fraud! Live recording from 3/6/13 at Patchogue Theater For The Performing Art's Live In The Lobby series. It was EPIC!

Then we'll hear an interview Professor Jim Quigley (of Stony Brook's School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences) did with a Professor Chris Sellers, Stony Brook History Department, on Sustainability. Look for more of Jim's programming here on WUSB.

My guest in the studio will be Kathy Seyfried, a member of the Speaker's Bureau for the County Emergency Response Team (CERT), to speak on Emergency Preparedness. If you're interested in learning more about CERT for Nassau, email oemcert@nassaucountyny.gov or call 516.573.9696, or in Suffolk google "Suffolk CERT" or go to (http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/Departments/FireRescueandEmergencyService...).+

Today's discussion is the impact storms have on Long Island inlets, and in particular, the new Old Inlet (which I am instructed is NOT an inlet, it is a BREACH).

My guests are Carl LoBue from The Nature Conservancy, and Marshall Brown from SaveTheGreatSouthBay.com and on Facebook. Send your questions to habanero@wusb.fm, or call the studio between 6-8 am (631.632.6901).

From one of my favorite listeners:

Hey Habanero, I hope you have recovered from Sandy and that the good ship Habanero is doing fine. I know you were planning a show devoted to Sandy but maybe not. But as you I am a lover of all the finned creatures I just heard about the devastation at the NY Aquarium in Coney Island. They are was major damage to the aquarium due to the storm surge. Most of the animals survived thanks to the very dedicated staff. But they are in need of contributions to help with the repairs. Here is the website for anyone that would like to contribute https://secure3.convio.net/wcs/site/Donation2?5360.donation=form1&df_id=... I was hoping you might mention it tomorrow and put the website link on your playlist.
I thank you and the fish thank you.
Your shark loving friend John

The Wrong Side Must Absolutely Not Win
by A. Barton Hinkle for the Richmond Times-Dispatch
Published August 19, 2012

The past several weeks have made one thing crystal-clear: Our country faces unmitigated disaster if the Other Side wins.

No reasonably intelligent person can deny this. All you have to do is look at the way the Other Side has been running its campaign. Instead of focusing on the big issues that are important to the American People, it has fired a relentlessly negative barrage of distortions, misrepresentations and flat-out lies.

Just look at the Other Side's latest commercial, which take a perfectly reasonable statement by the candidate for My Side completely out of context to make it seem as if he is saying something nefarious. This just shows you how desperate the Other Side is and how willing it is to mislead the American People.
