On Thursday’s show: How might Russia’s invasion of Ukraine affect oil prices here in the U.S. and therefore Houston?

Also this hour: We discuss the idea of building a “living shoreline” to protect the Texas coast from storms and flooding. Essentially, the idea is to design a nature-based support system for wetlands along the Gulf Coast using constructed oyster reefs. We learn how it would work.

And we examine disaster movies and what they can teach Houston in this month’s installment of The Bigger Picture.
