Sea Change Radio: The Dow of Deception: Mark Tulay, Segment 1

2 mois ago
As the horrendous economic news continues to pile up, somehow stock prices keep bouncing back, leaving many of us scratching our heads. This week’s guest on Sea Change Radio tries to help us make sense of it all. Mark Tulay, a consultant and expert in the field of sustainable investing, breaks down how Wall St. can essentially ignore economic reality, and how the stock market paints a picture of economic health despite the tens of millions of Americans suddenly out of work. Will Wall St. be able to paper over the vast inequities in this country and propel the Sociopath-in-Chief to re-election in November? Or will this finally be the moment when we recognize that the stock market is a poor barometer for the country’s economic well-being? We also discuss the pandemic’s effect on sustainable investment, examine which companies are seriously committed to the green revolution, and try to predict what this upheaval will mean for Wall St. long term.

TUC Radio: Helen Caldicott and Michael Madsen: Into Eternity ONE of TWO, Segment 2

2 mois ago
From the TUC Radio Archives: This is a conversation between Helen Caldicott and Michael Madsen whose film, Into Eternity, premiered in the US in February 2011. Into Eternity is a documentary about the building of the world’s first permanent repository for nuclear waste in Finland. It shows not only the construction under way that will take 140 years, but introduces the people involved, the scientists, regulators and corporate executives who oversee this project. None of them will be alive when Onkalo, as the repository is called, will be finished in 2120; and they must expect this repository to remain intact and untouched by future humans for at least 100,000 years. Such is the danger and longevity of waste from nuclear power plants. Helen called Madsen “One of the more extraordinary people I’ve ever interviewed”. This is a thought provoking exchange between the veteran campaigner, Helen Caldicott, who dedicated her life to alerting us to the nuclear danger, and the young Danish artist. He introduces thoughts about civilization, language, danger and eternity. In their conversation they say they question how anybody can even contemplate a human made repository that will last 100,000 years and possibly continue without human maintenance. Does this means that the builders do not expect for civilization to last? Or do we have to create an archive of knowledge about the danger of radiation that needs to be maintained? And who maintains that archive? As mind-bending such a project as Onkalo is, we need several hundred more repositories like Onkalo since most of the waste of the world’s nuclear power plants is sitting next to these plants in the open. Is it fair to future generations to impose such a burden on them?

Latin Waves : interviews author Silvia Federici, Segment 1

2 mois ago
Silvia Federici is a feminist activist and scholar whose writing and political activities contribute to a broad Autonomist tradition. With intellectual generosity, sharp, nonconformist thought, and searing critiques of capitalist society, her work has inspired social activists associated with the rise of the alter-globalization movement. Host Sylvia Richardson speaks to Silvia about the COVID19 crisis, how capitalism is a system in constant crisis and how they will use COVID to further consolidate wealth in society, how we don't want to return to what is considered normal, how communities have come together to face this crisis and how we need community to come together after COVID to address the wide spread job losses and social despair.

Taylor Report: Canada is at a Fork-in-the-Road, Segment 1

2 mois ago
The actual, living international community, consisting of rich, poor, and sanctioned countries alike, is co-operating to address the COVID-19 virus. Sanctioned and surrounded Cuba has extended its hand to every country willing to accept its help. Iran has done a better job in combating the virus than has the U.S/U.K. Venezuela has followed the guidelines on combating the Coronavirus, and has given aid to Antigua-Barbuda (after the U.S. confiscated its ventilators.) We have an international body called the World Health Organization. According to the Lancet's Dr. Richard Horton, the WHO is extremely important to all of humanity. Yet Mr. Big Spender Donald Trump wants to pull his money out, which Horton says is a 'crime against humanity.' And the major Canadian political parties want to follow the U.S. in deflecting blame, sanctioning countries, and creating a more difficult environment for everyone. Now, our Parliament wants to drag our WHO adviser, Dr. Alyward, in front of an inquisition to answer for his 'crime:' he said complementary words about China's response to COVID-19. He failed to "denounce" China's 'cover-up.' He's not a political hack like the members of the Parliamentary committee. This committee is an embarrassment. Five Eyes wants to create political and economic havoc at a time when the world is practicing international co-operation. The WHO has control over a narrative they wish to control. We have to stop carrying the ball for the U.S., and join the real world.
