Global Research News Hour: The End of Ice & Other Threats to the Planet: Climate Change with Paul Beckwith & Dahr Jamail , Segment 1

6 days 14 hours ago
On a week when youth around the planet are mobilizing strikes for ‘climate action,’ the Global Research News Hour highlights the major indicators of a natural world in crisis due to global warming. In the first half hour, following a short report on a local (Winnipeg) youth activist event, University of Ottawa based climate systems scientist Paul Beckwith outlines some of the more worrying signs that even the October 2018 IPCC Special Report on Climate Change failed to adequately address, he looks at the threats to the polar ice caps and the role they play in regulating familiar weather patterns, and he assesses some of what needs to be done to avoid multiple ‘tipping points’, and a ‘Hothouse Earth’ scenario. In our second half hour, wilderness adventurer, independent journalist, former Iraq War correspondent, and Truthout staff writer Dahr Jamail navigates listeners through The End of Ice, his recently published book on climate change.

Nonviolent Direct Action: NDA 12 - Swords into Plowshares, Segment 2

1 week ago
Martha Hennessy is one of seven Catholic plowshares activists who entered Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base in St. Mary’s, Georgia on April 4th, 2018. They went to make real the prophet Isaiah’s command to “beat swords into plowshares”. The seven chose to act on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who devoted his life to addressing what he called the “triple evils of militarism, racism and materialism.” Carrying hammers and baby bottles of their own blood, the seven attempted to convert weapons of mass destruction. They hoped to call attention to the ways in which nuclear weapons kill every day, by their mere existence and maintenance.

Building Bridges: Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Homeland Security , Segment 1

1 week ago
Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Homeland Security with Todd Miller, who for the past fifteen years has researched, written about, and worked on immigration and border issues from both sides of the U.S. Mexico divide for organizations such as BorderLinks, Witness for Peace, and NACLA. He did the brunt of this work in Tucson, Arizona and Oaxaca, Mexico. He is the author of Border Patrol Nation, and Storming the Wall: Climate Change, Migration, and Homeland Security, and is busy at work on his next book Empire of Borders: The Expansion of the US Border Around the World The border enforcement apparatus needs to be reduced, not enhanced. This means no more wall funding to Trump and no more surveillance technologies to the border as Democratic leadership such as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer insist. They both amount to the same thing: a reinforcement of an apparatus of exclusion. The issue of people arriving to our border is correctly a humanitarian one, and they need to be treated like refugees, not criminals. Miller sounds the alarm that this country's borders are being transformed into up-armored, heavily militarized zones run by a border-industrial complex, expanding police state. Miller shows us in stark relief how the entire country has become a militarized border zone, with consequences that affect us all.
