Previous Interview with Robert Kenner
Robert Kenner's Food, Inc., is one of the top grossing theatrical documentaries of all time, selling nearly 500,000 DVDs. Food, Inc. received widespread critical acclaim, dozens of awards and accolades, including an Academy Award nomination, and has influenced current food policy decisions. Kenner received a Peabody and an Emmy for Two Days in October, depicting simultaneous events in 1967: a deadly Vietcong ambush and a violent campus protest. He was co-filmmaker with Richard Pearce on The Road to Memphis for the Martin Scorsese series, The Blues. Newsweek called The Road to Memphis "as fine a film ever made about American music" and "the unadulterated gem of the Scorsese Series." Kenner has directed numerous specials for National Geographic and PBS's American Experience series, as well as award winning commercials and corporate films for a wide range of clients. Kenner recently completed When Strangers Click that premiered for HBO. He is currently creating a series of web and TV spots about the unsustainability of our industrial food system.
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.”

Climbing PoeTree is the combined force of Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman. Over the last 11 years, Climbing PoeTree has been at the forefront of social and environmental justice movements by harnessing their art as a tool for popular education, community organizing, and personal transformation. Their award-winning performance is composed of dual-voice spoken word poetry, hip hop, and multimedia theatre that dissolves apathy with hope, exposes injustice, and helps heal our inner trauma so that we may begin to cope with the issues facing our communities.
Climbing PoeTree has independently organized 25 national and international tours bringing their performance to thousands of people across the U.S. and abroad from Mexico to the UK, South Africa to Cuba. Their soul-stirring performances have been featured alongside visionary leaders and artists such as Angela Davis, Cornel West, Alice Walker, Erykah Badu, Alicia Keys, Saul Williams, Sonia Sanchez, Naomi Klein, Danny Glover, and The Last Poets, among others. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina Alixa and Naima traveled over 11,000 miles across the U.S. on a bus converted to run on recycled vegetable oil, merging theater and activism by creating a national network that gave voice to local organizations addressing and healing the effects of unnatural disasters in their communities. Climbing PoeTree’s artistic and organizing work can be found on the walls of galleries and museums through projects such as S.T.I.T.C.H.E.D and Shadow Boxing (Created by Garcia), and in the streets of Haiti (Ayiti Resurrect, Co-Founded by Penniman).

When we think of Church and Spiritual Centers we usually think in terms of Communities of Faith. But what about creating communities which teach us how to properly put our faith into action? What about taking centers of faith and turning them in practice centers where people are taught how to overcome the problems in living out their faith and matters of spiritual advancement. It's not just about what we believe...it's about how we live. And all of us can use a little guidance in that dept! http://www.hermetictemple.com
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.
Over the last few years we've seen the big dumb action movie, morph into something more, and that is what we're talking about tonight. Casino Royale and Iron Man rewrote the code, and we're gonna discuss the effects. The Sounders season kick-off, NFL free agency, and Mariners spring training are also on the dockett. Marvel got Spider-Man back and of course recommendations. Join TJ and Cameron as the Sports Nerd Show is back!
FOCUS FOR TODAY: DIVINE RIGHT ACTION
In the midst of the upheavals around the world, many are confused about what to call forth. The human intellect is flooded with facts and falsehoods, perceptions and biases--all based on limited information about motives, intentions, and agendas. Einstein said, "You can't solve the problem at the level of the problem." That means we have to rise up above the appearances of things in this physical world. The Highest Point of Awareness is at the Point of Sacred Unity and Infinite Intelligence in the Mind of the Creator.
A prayer for Divine Right Action is a prayer for the greatest good for the greatest number -- the greatest good for all. When we call for Divine Right Action we recognize that Infinite Intelligence within us can reveal a solution that brings only Good to everyone involved. The Omnipresence is fully present everywhere it is -- fully present in each and everyone of us. the Omniscient Omnipresence knows the solution that brings Good and only Good to All. Divine Right Action holds within it the knowledge of the impact of every choice on everyone. Affirming Divine Right Action demonstrates a state of mind in which we truly desire the best action -- the best solution -- a response that allows every one to be free from suffering.
