Food, Inc. received widespread critical acclaim, dozens of awards and accolades, including an Academy Award nomination, and has influenced current food policy decisions.

    Climate Action with Russell Greene

    in Politics Progressive

    Russell is joined by activist, author, speaker, Ted Glick.  


    Ted Glick has devoted over 45 years of his life to the progressive social change movement. After a year of student activism as a sophomore at Grinnell College in Iowa, he left college in 1969 to work full time against the Vietnam War. As a Selective Service draft resister, he spent 11 months in prison.


    For the last ten years Ted has played a national leadership role in the effort to stabilize our climate and for a renewable energy revolution. He was a co-founder in 2004 of the Climate Crisis Coalition and in 2005 coordinated the USA Join the World effort leading up to December 3rd actions during the United Nations Climate Change conference in Montreal.


    Since the mid-70s, Ted has been actively involved in community organizing efforts around environmental, tenant rights, community development and racial justice issues in Brooklyn, N.Y. and northern New Jersey. On a national scale he has been a leader in coalition-building and independent politics efforts. From 1995 to 2005, he was the National Coordinator of the Independent Progressive Politics Network, with which he continues to work. He is the coordinator of the Essex/Passaic Green Party.


    Over the years, Ted’s commitment to social justice has led him to partake in 20 extended fasts, six of which were for more than a month, including the Climate Emergency Fast in the fall of 2007 and two fasts in 2009.


    His prolific writing on the movement to which he devotes his life includes his 2000 book, “Future Hope: A Winning Strategy for a Just Society,” and his column, “Future Hope,” which has been distributed nationally since 2000. In late 2009 he finished a book manuscript, “Love Refuses to Quit: Climate Change and Social Change in the 21st Century.”

    Michigans Economic Climate 2014-2015

    in Entertainment

    I am going to read a small article I have never read and we will discuss Michigans economic climate. From what I see, to what I am told around me.


    Also I am going to discuss how we are lied to about many other countries and that the truth is not even allowed on the airways barely for us to know the truth about other places and what it is like to live there economically.


    I will do my best to keep my observations within my own state.

    Russell's guests are Rev. Lennox Yearwood and RL Miller.


    Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., President and CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus, is a minister, community activist and one of the most influential people in Hip Hop political life. He works tirelessly to encourage the Hip Hop generation to utilize its political and social voice.


    In 2010 he was named one of the 100 most powerful African Americans by Ebony Magazine, and one of the 10 Game Changers in the Green movement by the Huffington Post. In 2008, Rev Yearwood created the Hip Hop Caucus’ “Respect My Vote!” campaign with celebrity spokespeople T.I. and Keyshia Cole, which turned out record numbers of young people on Election Day.


    RL Miller blogs on climate; founded SuperPAC Climate Hawks Vote to elect - and hold accountable - politicians who prioritize the climate challenge; is elected chair of California Democratic Party’s Environmental Caucus; and practices law and keeps chickens. Climate Hawks Vote hatched in June 2014, made 17 endorsements in primaries and general election races in 2014, and won at least 10 - a very positive record made possible through its emphasis on fieldwork rather than big-spending ads.

    MOBILIZING AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE WITH MARGARET KLEIN SALAMON

    in Politics

    With average global temperatures continuing to set records almost annually, more Americans are admitting the reality of climate change, but are they admitting how serious it is and how quickly we need to act? Denial comes in many forms, and each of them requires a unique approach. To understand how to break through the denial of people who admit that global climate change exists but who want to believe there are good reasons to do nothing about it, we need to call in a psychotherapist.

    In this episode, we talk to Margaret Klein Salamon, clinical psychologist who writes at The Climate Psychologist and who founded and is Director of TheClimateMobilization. The topic is how do we get people to understand the urgency of mobilizing to fight climate change and how to organize and use the Pledge to Mobilize campaign to compel Congress to act.

    This show will be rebroadcast on March 28 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio Network.

    Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to explain the true costs of corporate control of the US government.

    Max Bliss - The Great Climate Hoax

    in Education

    Tonight my special guest is Mr. Max Bliss.


    Max is an independent researcher and activist and a very prominent voice in the climate change and geoengineering debate.


    His activism to stop geoengineering is non-stop and he is well known amongst the elite’s climate circles as someone they must contend with.


    My discussion with Max was wide ranging and extremely insightful. His knowledge of the true history of the motives and desires behind weather control is very impressive along with his courage to address the leading geoengineering scientists in their own backyard.

    Climate Action With Russell Greene


    Understanding the Fifth UN IPCC Predicament and Response


    The Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was finalized in 2014.


    Join me with my guest Atmospheric Scientist Peter Kalmus this Sunday to discuss what the report tells us and how we each may choose to respond.


    Peter Kalmus is an atmospheric scientist studying the role of clouds in global warming. After graduating from Harvard with a physics degree, he worked for four years as a computer programmer on Wall Street before returning to science and earning his PhD in physics from Columbia University. After five years as an astrophysicist at Caltech, he switched fields into atmospheric science.



    Being the father of two young boys motivates him to explore how we can appropriately respond -- as individuals -- to the massive problem of global warming. One of the many things he's done is to almost completely stop burning fossil fuels himself, by examining his own life and replacing fossil-fueled activities with bicycling, driving on veggie oil, remote participation in meetings, and a fossil-fuel-free diet. He calls this ongoing process of self-examination and self-change "be-cycling," and he says it makes him happier.
