The Alembic Files: "Be Angry at the Sun", Segment 1

1 week 5 days ago
Forget the political and historical blather and the managed mainstream news coverage, we are headed inexorably toward an event or events that cannot be prevented or sidestepped. Life rarely comes with happy, Hollywood endings and we all have entered a time in which the future will not be bright and without substantial pain. And it’s been like this for millennia. We just choose to forget, not remember, that civilization repeats the same mistakes when confronted with the same issues no matter the epoch. Only one thing is for sure: human behavior never changes.

Radio Curious: Livingston, Gordon M.D. — How To Love?, Segment 1

1 week 6 days ago
Everybody thinks about love and many people say “I love you”, but how is love defined? The book “How To Love” written by psychiatrist Dr. Gordon Livingston grapples with these and many other questions about love, and how to find a compatible and pleasurable partnership. In this interview, we discuss how to choose more carefully, in matters of love to get what we desire and deserve. The song, “Do You Love Me?” from the musical “Fiddler On The Roof,” is our background music. Dr. Gordon Livingston spoke from his home in Columbia, Maryland on July 13th 2009, where he lives and practices psychiatry. The conversation began when I asked Dr. Livingston to define love. The book Dr. Gordon Livingston recommends is “All He Ever Wanted,” by Anita Shreve.

TUC Radio: Professor Peter Wadhams: The Politics of Climate Change, Segment 2

1 week 6 days ago
This program is being produced in Mendocino County at the beginning of September 2018 only 16 miles east of where the largest wildfire in California history is slowly coming under control. Prof. Peter Wadhams is the UK’s most experienced sea ice scientist and was Professor of Ocean Physics at Cambridge from 1992 to 2015. He says that fossil fuel emissions caused the reduction of Arctic ice. Now the Arctic in turn is accelerating global warming instead of cooling the planet. The Arctic ice sheet covered the top of the world and touched the coast lines of Greenland, Canada, Alaska and Siberia for 100.000 years. In only 30 years the retreat from the coast lines during the Arctic summer accelerated and an ice free Arctic in September may occur by 2020. And the Arctic winter is no longer cold enough to restore ice levels. At the end of August 2018 Peter Wadhams was interviewed on the Reality Report blog, produced by Paul Maginley and Brian Weinstein. And you can watch the whole conversation of YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4Va-h46LIw Here are excerpts on the politics of climate change, the East Siberian Arctic Shelf, Blue Water Event, Methane Pulses, Sea Ice Loss, extreme weather events, and the deflections of the great global air current, the Jet stream, and the attitude of some political leaders. Professor Wadhams was interviewed on August 22, 2018.

The Alembic Files: Your Life is Their Toy - Part 5, Segment 1

1 week 6 days ago
Health and life are man's most precious possessions; and anxiety to preserve them is natural. It is not surprising, therefore, that they have been exploited since time immemorial. Every age has had its charlatans, quacks and medicine men. Much in the same measure as social organization has attained its highest pitch in the present era, the exploitation of health and life today has reached its zenith. Never before in history has there arisen such an extensive conspiracy about the problem of public health of entire nations, involving well-organized, opposing political and commercial groups. The consequence of this welter of exploitation is the sacrifice of human comfort, happiness, health and life. --Emanuel Josephson, 1941, "Your Life is Their Toy."

Sea Change Radio: Graham Sinclair on Sustainable Financial Markets, Segment 1

1 week 6 days ago
There is a nearly constant scroll of bad news passing before our eyes, from rampant income inequality and raging wildfires to climate devastation and white nationalists in the Oval Office. Somehow, though, the stock market just keeps chugging along. Corporate profits are up, so in the eyes of the average news consumer, the economy is "strong." But what factors are we missing in this declaration of strength? This week on Sea Change Radio, we discuss the state of the financial services industry with Graham Sinclair, who has worked in the field for over a decade. He helps people who are hell-bent on maximizing profits start to take other things into account, like social justice and the environment. Sinclair tells us what resonates with these financial services professionals, what trends he sees in the industry, and what gives him hope about it moving forward.
