    Episode 45 - #OperationTerraDistressia or Two Sides Of The Lopsided Sphere

    in Environment

    Global warming AKA climate change is something that we've heard since our infancy is set to destroy the Earth. But how much of that is panicked alarmism, and how much of it is truly rooted in rational science. You turn on the news today and it seems every story that talks about any extreme weather pattern is attributed to man-made climate change. This week it's the drought in California, next week it's El Nino and too much rain in California. How can both be right? It seems that there are coherent arguments on both sides of the climate change spectrum. How can contradicting weather patterns both be attributed to climate change and if they are how can anything disprove this Theory and if it can't be disproven is it really science? What seems logical is the fact that humans have gone under the surface to extract carbon rich fossil fuels to use as energy which obviously creates more carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases which then are disproportionately in the atmosphere when they wouldn't have been otherwise. That much I think is indisputable. Where the climate change deniers seem to differ after this respect is where they say that CO2 does not trap heat or make the Earth's temperature rise. Or they insist that a rise in CO2 is not because of man which I think is nonsense. Regardless on which side of the argument you fall on, we should all be working towards a zero emissions world. Because regardless if it's causing climate change or not it's indisputable that its pollution and is detrimental to planetary health no matter what. We should also stop deforestation which is basically killing the lungs of the planet. And the United States needs to clean up its own house before it dictates what anybody else should be doing because we are one of the biggest polluters in the world along with China.

    Dr Guy McPherson Helping Others Walk Away from Empire

    in Environment

    You'll hear about all of it in this interview. About the things we're doing to our living habitat on Earth.
    By the way, "habitat" doesn't mean "mall." Doesn't mean WalMart either  And that big screen TV? That's not it, the stuff on it isn't even real.
    Our living habitat comprises all the things that industrial civilization does not value: the air we breathe, our oceans, the dirt under our feet. If it can't be mined or made into a dumping ground, it's useless. Even the people living here are only useful as consumers.
    In this 32-minute interview, Guy McPherson shares with Co-Host Daniel Kerbein his view that industrial civilization is destroying everything so quickly, that that if we don't stop it in the next few years, we are quickly headed for an uninhabitable planet.
    Dr. McPherson came around to this while a tenured professor of Environmental Science at the U. of Arizona. He couldn't reconcile his position of privilege with his realization that a collapse is mandatory for humanity's continued survival. So, he says, he "walked away from Empire."
    Now he lives with a group of like-minded people, producing what he calls "the Big Four- healthy food, clean water, body temperature maintenance (clothing & dwellings), and a decent human community." He also volunteers his time teaching others how to walk away.
    This walking away, by McPherson and others, is the subject of the upcoming film "Somewhere in New Mexico, Before the End of Time.", by Mike Sosebee. Dr. McPherson's blog site, www.guymcpherson.com, is titled "Nature Bats Last."
    This interview first aired on KBBF-FM 89.1 Calistoga/Santa Rosa. Please support bilingual public radio.

    Why we will colonize the Earth's Moon

    in Environment

     
    While many of us are preoccupied with the toils and cares of our day, others look beyond and see the imperative of discussing humankind’s inevitable colonization of the Earth’s Moon. 
    Why: In this first edition, we will discuss various points of view as to why this will and is occurring.   
    What: When we talk about colonizing we mean the development of sustainable communities.  Mining, exploration and discovery will be the primary emphasis as well as study and observation of our home planet.  What will the social environment be?  
     
    Who: Should colonization be public, private or a combination of both?  Should any effort be encouraged or discouraged and what are the groups most likely to cooperate?  Who will be in charge of setting up and enforcing the rules of conduct. 
     
    How: Will development be politically or economically stimulated?  How should we go about constructing the rules of conduct?
