In this episode we discuss what wind turbines have done to communities around Ohio and America.This is a rerun of the episode from an earlier date.
We will air a very special interview with Pat Swords and Christine Metcalfe on their efforts to force EU and UK compliance with the Aarhus Convention — information, participation, and justice.Clive Hambler from Oxford will talk about wildlife and wind facilities.
Eunyoung Kim is an acknowledged expert in alternative energy and environmental issues. She has a B.S. in Chemistry and an M.A. in Educational Psychology and owns her own company, Synapse International, L.L.C., providing green energy products and services including designing and installing ground-source heat pump products, solar panels, rooftop wind turbines and LED lighting. Current projects include a large-scale waste-to-energy project using gasification to convert typical landfill material to recyclable metals, biofuels and electrical energy, distribution of software for calculating parameters necessary for installation of ground-source heat pumps, distribution of energy-efficient steam traps and design and installation of high-tech air purifying systems in convenience stores. She is currently in the process of developing a small-scale Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) system appropriate for individual dwellings, offices or small complexes based on a mini-Parabolic Dish System with fiber-optic connection to the solar receiver and electrical generating system.
Ms. Kim spent three years as the Asian Bureau Director of the Oklahoma State University School of International Studies during which time she developed contacts in the United States through the International Ground-Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA) resulting in the establishment of a local chapter of IGSHPA in Korea. She taught Environmental Science as an adjunct professor at DeVry University in Oklahoma City.
Ms. Kim currently writes a weekly column on environmental issues for the Korea Energy News, and serves as the Washington DC reporter for the Korea Energy News. As a member of the National Press Club in Washington, DC United States of America she has access to energy experts throughout the United States and the world. She has written this weekly column for over four years and is in the process of writing a book based on her weekly columns.
Cary Shineldecker of Ludington, Michigan will be on the program this weekend to talk about his life among turbines. Cary is Petition supporter #1017. He writes, "I am a resident caught in the middle of a wind development. Not only do these ruin our lives, but they ruin every thing in nature we hold sacred. Wildlife, Scenery, and the Value of Quiet Places for generations to come. Put an end to this madness. Turbines cannot even create enough energy to pay for themselves. Stop development now." Jane Wilson of Wind Concerns Ontario will be on to talk about the winners of the 2nd Annual Golden Pinwheel awards. Kristi Rosenquist and Mary Hartman will be on to update us on New Era Wind's quest to kill bald eagles and other raptors in Minnesota -- U.S. Fish and Wildlife say that fine and dandy Graham Lang and Lyndsey Ward will talk about the brand new national alliance -- Scotland Against Spin http://scotlandagainstspin.org
John Rubino of DollarCollapse.com joined us for our Monday discussion. He says, "It’s amazing how quickly China went from being the world’s savior to its biggest danger." To recap:
When the developed world stepped off a cliff in 2008, China responded by borrowing about $15 trillion and spending most of it on infrastructure. Roads, bridges, skyscrapers, power plants, whole cities went up around the country. The resulting demand for everything from iron ore to wind turbines helped offset contractions in the US and Europe, turning an incipient global Depression into nothing more than a severe recession.
But government-directed growth on this scale produces a mountain of misallocated capital which eventually comes back to haunt its owner. And that's where we are now.

Camille Coley - Florida Atlantic University: The National Climate Assessment (NCA) is an important resource for understanding and communicating climate change science and impacts in the US. It informs the nation about already observed changes, the current status of climate and anticipated trends for the future. The NCA report process integrates scientific information from multiple sources and sectors to highlight key findings and significant gaps in our knowledge.
Ozzie Zehner is the author of Green Illusions: The Dirty Secrets of Clean Energy and the Future of Environmentalism which was published last month. We don’t have an energy crisis. We have a consumption crisis. And this book, which takes aim at cherished assumptions regarding energy, offers refreshingly straight talk about what’s wrong with the way we think and talk about the problem. Though we generally believe we can solve environmental problems with more energy—more solar cells, wind turbines, and biofuels—alternative technologies come with their own side effects and limitations. How, for instance, do solar cells cause harm? Why can’t engineers solve wind power’s biggest obstacle? Why won’t contraception solve the problem of overpopulation, lying at the heart of our concerns about energy, and what will? Ozzie Zehner is a visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley. His recent publications include public science pieces in Christian Science Monitor, The American Scholar, The Humanist, The Futurist, Women’s Studies Quarterly and The Economist as well as educational resources in Green Technology (Sage, 2011) and Green Culture (Sage, 2011). Zehner’s research and projects over the previous two decades have been covered by CNN, MSNBC, USA Today, Science News Radio, The Washington Post, Business Week and numerous other media outlets. He also serves on the editorial board of Critical Environmentalism. Zehner primarily researches the social, political and economic conditions influencing energy policy priorities and project outcomes. His work also incorporates symbolic roles that energy technologies play within political and environmental movements.
The topics are wide-ranging today: the letter to the editor, "What Has America Become" (http://frontpage.americandaughter.com/?p=4363), the changing views on the American family, wind turbines in Bonneville County, school district consolidation and charter schools.
One uranium district completely ignored by the investment community today is Elliot Lake, Ontario. More than 300 million pounds of uranium were mined in Elliot Lake, Ontario by Rio Algom and Denison Mines. The Elliot Lake Mining Camp is known as the Uranium Capital of the World and was the only Canadian mine that commercially produced Rare Earth Oxides. The Elliot Lake mines were closed down in the 90's when rare earths were unknown and worth little and uranium was trading below $20 a pound. Being a past producing district of both uranium and rare earths gives an advantage to Pele Mountain Resources (GEM.V or GOLDF) a small junior miner, who will hopefully begin feasibility on their enormous and valuable Eco Ridge resource. ?
Operating in an established, past producing district with power, labor and infrastructure is crucial when evaluating the potential viability of mining development. Every twenty to thirty years Elliot Lake goes through a boom cycle. Even though the Athabasca region has higher grade uranium, mining and processing is a lot more challenging.
Pele Mountain (GEM.V or GOLDF) may provide excellent leverage to uranium and rare earths for investors at these discounted levels. Elliot Lake is a proven rare earth and uranium mining district which is very supportive of Pele Mountain's Eco Ridge Mine.
Pele has a proven commercial processing method unlike so many other rare earth juniors of recovering the valuable rare earths used in the latest green energy technologies such as wind turbines and high efficiency lighting. Pele has the Elliot Lake technical team led by Roger Payne who has the experience designing and developing efficient and safe production of critical clean energy metals such as uranium and rare earths.
Disclosure: Author/Interviewer owns Pele and company is sponsor on website.
