We want your questions about what you can do to help our planet. Whatever your question, you can ask it on our question page here. If your topic is chosen, we'll answer it on the air.

In this era of unprecedented environmental change, gloom and doom are easy to come by. So are endless “solutions.” Ban plastic straws? Drive an electric car? Buy organic? The list can get pretty overwhelming. The team at Possibly looks at the science behind proposed solutions - to help you cut through the noise and make choices that, possibly, will make a difference.

The world is warming, sea level is rising, species are going extinct - and if humans keep burning fossil fuels and forests it will only happen faster. Every day we are told to do better, to make changes to our lives to help “save the planet.” But we can’t do everything, and even if we did, would it matter?

Possibly is here to answer those questions. We dive deep into the field of sustainability science, reporting out what is known, and what we don’t know, about how the environment is changing and what we can do about it. We focus here in our home state of Rhode Island, but answer questions that are asked by people all over the country and the world.
