WWR will interview Jacinta Faber and J.P. Michaud two members of the Ellis County Environmental Coalition that fought off the giant energy corporation, Iberdrola in Ellis County, Kansas.  For the time being the project has been held off but Jacinta and J.P. and other members of their group remain vigilant. How did they manage to win?  It's a modern day David vs. Goliath tale. Tune in to find out more.

We will also catch up with Susan Crosthwaite -- the  Chair of Communities Against Turbines Scotland (CATS).  Susan will update us on the fight against the massive industrialization of Scotland planned by the Salmond government.  Scotland has had an onslaught of wind prospectors trying to gobble up vast portions of unspoiled forests and landscapes.

On our third segment, we are joined by James Delingpole, irrepressible author, journalist, and candidate for Parliament.  James won the 2010 Bastiat Prize for Online Journalism for his work at The Telegraph.  James is currently running for MP in the borough of Corby in Northhamptonshire.

“I believe that wind farms are a cancer: one of the worst crimes ever perpetrated against the country by Westminster. I want to raise public awareness of just how disastrous these bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco crucifixes are in every single respect. And I want to urge the people of Corby and East Northants not to vote for any of the three parties that support these monstrosities. That means don’t, whatever you do, vote LibLabCon."
