Taylor Report: Gbagbo has been acquitted, but remains in the coils of the ICC. , Segment 1

1 week 2 days ago
Laurent Gbagbo, former president of Ivory Coast, was acquitted at the ICC but as of now, is not free. Although media speculate he will go to Belgium, his actual whereabouts are unknown. Such is justice at the celebrated international tribunal. These facts give rise to the commonly-held view that the true function of the ICC is take specific African leaders "out of circulation," so that they can be replaced by non-entities chosen by the Western powers.

The Alembic Files: Your Life is Their Toy - Part 22, Segment 1

1 week 2 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."

TUC Radio: NASA Scientist Eric Rignot on Melting Glaciers in Antarctica, Segment 2

1 week 3 days ago
Even mainstream media reported at the beginning of February, 2019, a sensation in sea level rise. NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, confirmed that a huge cavity — two-thirds the size of Manhattan and almost 1,000 feet tall — has melted into the bottom of Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica. This glacier is about the size of Florida, and is currently already responsible for about 4 percent of global sea level rise. Thwaites is sometimes called a culture changer since the collapse of that one glacier would raise the oceans by two feet, threatening so many centers of civilization that are built on the coast lines of the world. Eric Rignot of the University of California, Irvine, and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena is the co-author of this new study, which was published in Science Advances. Rignot is one of the first scientists who had the data to quantify the increasing discharges from the glacier system in the Amundsen Sea Embayment where the Thwaites is located. This program is a collaboration between TUC Radio and Radio Ecoshock. Alex Smith of Radio Ecoshock interviewed Eric Rignot at the end of January 2019 about the article: "Four decades of Antarctic Ice Sheet mass balance from 1979 - 2017", released on January 14, 2019. Then Maria presents a segment of her archived 2014 interview with Rignot on "Ice Melt in Part of Antarctica ‘Appears Unstoppable'". Rignot was the lead author in this NASA study. She specifically asked Rignot about the research methods that he used to study the fastest melting part of West Antarctica, the Amundsen Sea Embayment where the Thwaites glacier is located; hoping that if people understood how the science works they would more likely to act upon the information. If all the ice of Antarctica melted, it would raise global sea levels by 58 m

Radio Curious: Wilkerson, Isabel — America’s Great Migration: 1915-1970 Part One, Segment 1

1 week 3 days ago
In the years between 1915 and 1970 almost six million black American citizens from the south migrated to northern and western cities seeking freedom and a better life. Our guest is Pulitzer Prize winner, Isabel Wilkerson author of “The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration.” Her book tells the untold experiences of the African-Americans who fled the south over three generations. Wilkerson interviewed more than 1,000 people for her book. She is the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize and is a recipient of the George Polk Award and a John Simon Guggenheim Fellow. Her parents were part of the great migration, journeying from Georgia and southern Virginia to Washington D.C. In the first of two interviews recorded from Isabel Wilkerson’s home near Atlanta, Georgia, on September 28, 2012, she begins with a description of the “biggest untold story of the 20th century.”  The book Isabel Wilkerson recommends is “The Ark of Justice,” by Kevin Boyle.

Jeff Halper - One Democratic State in Historic Palestine, Segment 1

1 week 3 days ago
Jeff Helper speaks on a new initiative, the joint work of 90 some Palestinians and Israeli Jews.A plan for one democratic state of Arabs and Jews in historic Palestine. There is effectively only one State already. That was the Zionist plan from the beginning of their colonial settler, religious nationalist project. But there are other facts on the ground, beside the illegally built Jewish only settlements built on Palestinian land; 6,000,000 Palestinians who have resisted the genocidal practices of the Israeli State Israel is a world leader in the technology of repression. It is exporting that technology to other countries, who seek to suppress their own popular opposition to neoliberal programs and dictatorial governance. Halper speaks briefly of that and of his new book on the topic.
