TUC Radio: Prof. Peter Wadhams: Arctic Amplification, Climate Change, and Global Warming, Segment 1

3 months ago
NOTE: This program begins with two brief news clips from NBC4 and Thom Hartmann as reminder that a most important but underreported news item for September is the status of the sea ice in the Arctic. With increasing urgency Wadhams is calling attention to the disappearing sea ice of the Arctic. In his most recent book, A Farewell to Ice, he writes: “Our planet has changed color. Today, from space, the top of the world in the northern summer looks blue instead of white. We have created an ocean where there was once an ice sheet.” In a lecture in Milan, Italy, in May 2015, Peter Wadhams explained how the melting of the Arctic affects the rest of the world. He listed seven major areas, among them sea level rise, emission of methane, and extreme weather events that we already experience. Peter Wadhams is the UK’s most experienced sea ice scientist. He has made more than 50 expeditions to both polar regions, working from ice camps, icebreakers, and aircraft. He made six submerged voyages to the North Pole on Royal Navy submarines. Wadhams’ research group in Cambridge has been the only UK group with the capacity to carry out field work on sea ice. In Part ONE Wadhams explains the consequences of the shrinking and thinning sea ice.
In Part TWO he covers the melting of the Greenland ice sheet, the loss of snow, the multi-national study on the recent discovery of methane releases from permafrost and shallow water, the link between sea ice loss and extreme weather events, and the deflections of two great global air and water currents, the Jet stream and the thermohaline circulation.

Taylor Report: Einstein vs. the FBI: why it matters today, Segment 1

3 months ago
Black Agenda Report's Danny Haiphong has learned valuable lessons from Fred Jerome's book, "The Einstein File." The oft-neglected history of Einstein is that he was a committed socialist who took part in the American anti-lynching campaign. Naturally, the U.S. state, including J. Edgar Hoover's FBI, took a hostile approach to the legendary scientist. Progressives used to understand that the FBI and intelligence agencies were hostile to left-wing activity. But, as Haiphong explains, traditional 'left liberals' have been corralled onto a fascist terrain. They now believe that the exceptional U.S. military, secret police, and intelligence agencies, the repressive arms of capitalism, are "good guys" against Trump. In this context, it becomes difficult to speak of a meaningful "left-wing" existing in the United States. Much in the same way that many leftists, including Einstein, were labelled "dupes of Russia" by J. Edgar Hoover's FBI, today's establishment similarly labels Haiphong, Ajamu Baraka, and other leftists resisting their own empire as "Russian-influenced." We should be more like Einstein, and reject the politics of scare-mongering and bigotry. Only then can we form a 'resistance.'
