Sea Change Radio: Midterm Thanks: John Stoehr + Emily Atkin, Segment 1

2 semaines 4 jours ago
This week, as we inventory the things for which we are thankful, many of us may include some of the midterm election results in our accounting. Today on Sea Change Radio, we hear the second half of our discussion with John Stoehr, of the New Haven Register and The Editorial Board newsletter. We examine how Democrats have handled the gun debate over the past couple of decades, and talk about the possibility of Beto O’Rourke running for president in 2020. Then, we hear from Emily Atkin, a staff writer for The New Republic, who thinks that while there were victories for which environmentalists can be thankful, the failure of three different states to pass climate change-related bills on November 6th was a troubling reminder of the hard work that lies ahead.

TUC Radio: Fire and the Underground Life in the Forest - Peter Wohlleben and Suzanne Simard, Segment 2

2 semaines 4 jours ago
As California tries to come to terms with the largest and deadliest fires of 2018, attention falls on forests. Logging companies want more clear-cuts. Donald Trump says the forest floor should be cleaned with rakes. Indigenous elders and visionary foresters say that nobody is asking the trees what they want and need. Especially now as the heat is rising, water becomes scarce and winds are fiercer. Peter Wohlleben is the author of: "The Hidden Life of Trees: What they Feel, How they Communicate: Discoveries from a Secret World". He is a German forester who became disenchanted by the technologies he was expected to employ. He now manages a 4000 year old beech tree forest in Germany. He was interviewed by Steve Paikin on The Agenda in October, 2016. Wohlleben referred to research by colleagues and scientists that he benefitted from. Important among them is Suzanne Simard, professor of forest ecology at the University of British Columbia. She has tested theories about how trees communicate with other trees. Simard also helped identify something called a hub tree, or “mother tree”. Mother trees are the largest trees in forests that act as central hubs for vast below-ground mycorrhizal networks.

The Alembic Files: Your Life is Their Toy - Part 13, Segment 1

2 semaines 5 jours 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."

Radio Curious: Freed, Lynn — Reflections on a Life, Segment 1

2 semaines 5 jours ago
The personal journal is often not meant for the eyes of anyone but the writer. When a stranger’s journal is read, the reader often becomes a voyeur to the innermost secrets of another. And whether it is a true journal or one of fiction, who cares? Often, it remains a good story. Lynn Freed, originally of Durban, South Africa, wrote the fictional journal of Agnes LaGrange, entitled “The Mirror,” which reveals the thoughts, feelings, and loves of Agnes, starting when she arrived in South Africa to work as a housekeeper, and ending 50 years later. Lynn Freed recommends “Misfit,” by Jonathan Yardly, “Essays,” by George Orwell & “Last Days in Cloud Cukooland Dispatches,” by Graham Boynton. Originally Broadcast: December 12, 1997
