Welcome to Your Community Science Class!  On today's broadcast we explore the effects of Citrus Greening Disease.  As we consider the global blights across nature, we are looking at huanlongbing, which has the potential to devastate citrus trees globally. Part 2 will air at 8pm eastern, hosted by Dimensions of Quantum where we will look at the solutions being proposed for this blight, which includes genetically modifiying all orange trees.  There already has, over the past several years, been a large increase in pesticide usage on oranges.  This begs the question, are oranges currently safe to consume?  Join us as we explore this and many other questions regarding yet another devastating disease affecting the monoculture industry.
