Kling interviewed on Jim Engster Show

The Gulf of Mexico hypoxic ("dead") zone varies in size every year depending on a number of factors, but the effects of the dead zone are always detrimental. Cathy Kling, an environmental economist and director of the Center for Agricultural and Rural Development, has spent years studying the Dead Zone, its environmental and economic impacts, and the ways it can be controlled. Recently, Dr. Kling, along with Nancy Rabalais of the Louisiana Marine Consortium and Dr. Eugene Turner of Louisiana State University, was interviewed on Jim Engster's National Public Radio show about the Dead Zone and possible reduction strategies.
