As we shift from petroleum-based energy to renewable energy, the production of biofuel, created from invasive species appears to be a viable option. However, certain plant species which have been proposed for biofuel production include invasive species and/or other plants which have the potential to escape cultivation. Is this a good solution for eliminating an environmental issue while satisfying an energy need or is this type of biofuel merely creating a disaster in the making? In this segment of The Clean Energy View Radio Show, hosts, June Stoyer and special guest host, Luis Mejia talk to Dr. Lewis Ziska about the pros and cons of using invasive species as biofuel. Dr. Ziska is a Plant Physiologist with the USDA's Agricultural Research Service in Beltsville, Maryland. After graduating from the University of California, Davis, he began his career as a Smithsonian fellow, and then took up residence as the Project Leader for global climate change at the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines before joining USDA. Dr. Ziska has published numerous papers on carbon dioxide and climate change impacts on agriculture, weed biology and public health. At present he is investigating the role of rising carbon dioxide and changing climate on food security, invasive species and aerobiology. Dr. Ziska's research has appeared in: The Wall Street Journal, National Geographic, The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report and CNN Headline News.

Tarbosaurus will be the topic on Natures Talk Shows Species profile on The Fine Art of Paleontology. Tarbosaurus was a carnivore (meat-eater) that lived in Asia during the late Cretaceous Period about 65 to 68 million years ago.It was one of the dinosaurs that died out in the Cretaceous- Tertiary extinction 65 million years ago.
Tarbosaurus was about 30 to 40 feet (9 to 12 meters) long and weighed 4 to 5 tons. Tarbosaurus is closely related to the Tyrannosaurus Rex and scientists have long debated how Tarbosaurus should be classified.The name Tarbosaurus means "terror lizard"

Even governments have introduced foreign species to pristine eco-systems trying to solve a problem but actually caused bigger problems. Tanya lives right on the Mexican border where there is a severe problem with plecos. Tanya will discuss this topic with me on 01-06-2014 at 1 pm EST. Callin to share at 1-347-677-1837

Nan is the Education Director at Senokrit and reaches out into the communities to help train and share valuable information to those interested in protecting our natural habitats from invasive species.

I will be discussing deforestation, the causes and the effects and why this may happen more if we stopped fishers in the Aquarium fish business. I will discuss the two-fold problem of these things and more. This is only my views and opinions here, so call in at 1-347-677-1837 and share the show with me.
Our guest is JONATHAN RATNER, Western Watersheds Project’s Director for Wyoming, Utah and Colorado. Jonathan joined WWP after a stint with the Forest Service in which he documented severe degradation caused by livestock grazing. When his reports were consigned to the ‘round file’ by the Forest Service, he sought out assistance from various area conservation organizations to deal with the problems, all of which declined to help. In his search for assistance farther afield he came across Western Watersheds Project and shortly thereafter started WWP’s Wyoming Office.
Jonathan will talk about public lands ranching, the most widespread commercial use of public lands in the United States. Ranching is one of the primary causes of native species endangerment in the American West; it is also the most significant cause of non-point source water pollution and desertification.
Tonight's show is hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. and Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation.

In this episode we will be talking to Ryan Young from Molecular Reptile about his approach to keeping and breeding White Lipped Pythons. He has successfully bred this species 3 years in a row. White lipped pythons are a more advanced species of python that are being kept in the reptile hobby today.
We will talk in depth about his approach and what really makes this species tick.

Dr. Williams has had an interest in medical research at an early age. After watching his grandmother struggle with breast cancer, he set out on a journey to find a cure. In college, Dr. Williams spent his spare time in the labs and library researching gene therapy. He won many awards for his efforts.
After receiving his Medical Degree from LSU School of Medicine in Shreveport, Dr. Williams became interested in a new concept: destroying cancer cells by using radiofrequency ablation of tumors. This procedure used the same minimally-invasive technique of using imaging to guide the needle straight into the tumor and instead of biopsying the tumor, it was heated and destroyed. This was already being done in the liver at other research hospitals, but was relatively new to other areas of the body.
It didn't take long for the word to spread about this new procedure, and Dr. Williams was performing ablations on many patients around the world.He won many awards including the Radiological Society of North American Resident / Fellow of the Year.
As one of the pioneers of cancer ablation, Dr. Williams founded The American Cancer Ablation Center in 2003 and began seeing patients at his office in Gulf Shores. He takes pride in being able to offer his patients the latest, most advanced medical imaging technology and procedures available to date.
