Judith Curry, PhD.
Dr. Curry is a professor and former Chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, and President (co-owner) of Climate Forecast Applications Network (CFAN). She has been known for her work on hurricanes, Arctic ice dynamics and other climate-related topics. But over the past year or so she has become better known for something that annoys, even infuriates, many of her scientific colleagues. According to one article in Scientific American, Curry has been engaging actively with the climate change skeptic community, largely by participating on outsider blogs such as Climate Audit, the Air Vent and the Blackboard. Why a climate heretic? Because she has come to question the way climatologists react to those who question the science. She thinks there's a lot of "crankology" out there. She is all about not lumping in the good with the bad and wants us to think - not tell us what to think! This show sponsored by The Fairfax Companies.
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.
KaliSara has been chomping at the bit all year to address this topic. RevKess is giving her mostly free reign to do so.
In this edition of PWN the hosts will tackle the broad topic of climate change:
And what we as Pagans can do to help remedy the disastrous effects the human population have had on our Mother Earth.
Other topics that might get discussed during the show include, but are not limited to:
GMOs & growing your own food
Show notes available on PMPChannel.com.
On this episode of ALLBLACKEVERYTHING the subject will be " get active!"
Our communities need us! Our people need us! We need eachother! This grave state of the Afrikan condition is not a permanent one but it requires our participation and dedication to more than just discussion and it does not take a large group to get the ball rolling.
On tonight's show we will speak with founder of TCA Kommuniversity Bro. Aleous Kujichgulia to discuss some basic ends and outs of staring various programs within the community.We will take a look at what we can do and should be doing to bring about change in our community. If we want our situation to move we must move. As always callers are always welcome, share with us the changes you are affecting in your area and how we can support and be apart. If you have felt overwhelmed not knowing where to begin tonight we will help tackle that together. The call in number is 347-850-8030..9p.m est.

ENVISION THIS: Pilgrimages that connect with people and the land in a way that makes our interaction more personal, more meaningful, more spiritual.
In 2014, Ed Fallon helped lead a core group of 35 climate activists on a 3,000-mile journey from Los Angeles, CA to Washington, DC. Ed walked every step of the way to share the experience and help empower people to take climate action NOW! He has been called “The hardest working man out of politics.”
In March 2015 he will walk again, this time the Iowa stretch of the proposed Bakken Oil Pipeline, roughly 400-miles, holding public meetings to listen to area residents’ concerns about the proposed pipeline and share his own concerns about climate change, water quality and eminent domain. “People need to understand the seriousness of the climate crisis,” says Fallon.
Asked why he chose to walk the pipeline route, not simply drive it, Fallon says: “Walking puts you in touch with life and with people in a way that driving doesn’t. I want to touch the soil that would be damaged. I want to feel running through my fingers the water that might inevitably be contaminated. For me...this is a pilgrimage of sorts, a chance to connect with people and the land in a way that makes our interaction more personal, more meaningful, more spiritual."
Ed's presentation involves three parts: 1. Recounting the hardships, challenges and huge logistical obstacles of moving a large group of people on foot coast-to-coast. 2. Introducing us to some of the people he meets along the way - people impacted by the climate crisis, and people creating more sustainable ways to live in the New Climate Era. 3. Encouraging us to make changes in our personal lives, to lobby local and federal political and business leaders, and to become active in a local organization working on climate change.
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.
Talkupy with Annie Lindstrom welcomes climate justice activist Damien Luzzo to the show on Tuesday January 20 at 2 pm ET. We will talk about the need for climate justice and his experience taking part in direct actions with Utah Tar Sands Resistance last summer, which aimed to put a halt to the first tar sands mining project in the U.S.
For more information on Damien go to his Facebook or Twitter page @damienLuzzo. For more information on the Utah Tar Sands Resistance go to the group's Web site or Facebook page.
"Another epic blizzard is bearing down on New England. There is a “big part” played by “human-induced climate change,” especially warming-fueled ocean temperatures, according to Dr. Kevin Trenberth, former head of the Climate Analysis Section at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
I asked Dr. Trenberth to comment on the role climate change has on this latest storm, which is forecast to set records. He explained:
The number 1 cause of this is that it is winter. In winter it is cold over the continent. But it is warm over the oceans and the contrast between the cold continent and the warm Gulf Stream and surrounding waters is increasing. At present sea surface temperatures are more the 2F above normal over huge expanses (1000 miles) off the east coast and water vapor in the atmosphere is about 10% higher as a result. About half of this can be attributed to climate change." http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2015/01/26/3615330/blizzards-climate-scientists/
Last week an oil train carrying explosive Bakken crude derailed and caught fire in Fayette County, West Virginia. Forty-eight hours earlier, on Saturday, an oil train carrying toxic Alberta tar sands derailed and spilled in Ontario, Canada.
Todd Paglia, Forest Ethics executive director, released the following statement:“Oil trains are simply too dangerous for the rails. Whether it is explosive Bakken crude or toxic Alberta tar sands this extreme oil cannot be transported safely by train. Twenty-five million Americans live in the blast zone and nearly everyone else lives downstream of an oil train route.
Matt Krogh is the Director, Extreme Oil Campaign for Forest Ethics
With over 12 years experience in nonprofit work and advocacy, Matt joined ForestEthics in August 2013 to direct a new campaign targeting tar sands on the West Coast of North America, Tar Sands SOS. Most recently as the North Sound Baykeeper at RE Sources for Sustainable Communities in Bellingham, Washington, Matt has spent the last three years fighting against Gateway Pacific and other proposed coal terminals on the West Coast. As a freelancer, he and his father co-authored a book on integrity and principle-based decision making—both critical components of effective advocacy.
