APES vs. is a project for Research Triangle High School's AP Environmental Science class. It is a tribute to Gimlet Media's "Science vs" podcast. Students picked a topic related to environmental science and read some scientific papers to find out what experts are saying on the topic. All voices you are hearing are those of high school students, they may be playing the part of experts for dramatic effect, but keep in mind they don't have PhDs just yet.
