John is the Climate Communication Fellow for the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland. He originally obtained a Bachelor of Science at the University of Queensland, achieving First Class Honours with a major in physics. He co-authored the 2011 book Climate Change Denial: Heads in the Sand with Haydn Washington, and the 2013 college textbook Climate Change Science: A Modern Synthesis with Tom Farmer. He also lead-authored the paper Quantifying the Consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature, which was tweeted by President Obama and was awarded the best paper published in Environmental Research Letters in 2013.
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.

Dear Witch School Students, Members and Staff,
I am writing to you as the new President of Witch School, International. Ed Hubbard has handed me the reins to run the school and its various divisions, such as Magick TV, the Facebook Pages, yahoo groups, our Ning social site and Pagans Tonight internet radio shows. Of course, I can’t do this without the help of our excellent staff.
In the past few days, I’ve been contacting our staff members to find out how they keep all these projects running and, I have to say, I’ve been impressed! Coordinating our social media sites along with our school also involves the help of volunteers who mentor students, answer questions and help to keep the excitement of our family of projects alive.
Two things that I’ve been asked to do, especially in the coming year are to bring a fresh vision to the school with new ideas and ways for students to be involved and to shift all of Witchschool International into a non-profit religious education organization. We hope to increase the ways that we can serve the Pagan and magickal communities while keeping our historical important role of support for the Correlian Tradition of Wicca.
Let me introduce myself and answer questions, so feel free to call in! Keep in mind, I’m still “getting my feet wet” so I may not know all the answers, but I’m interested in your questions. Questions and suggestions can be sent to me via the ning social site or email@example.com.
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

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.
