Sea Change Radio: Rebecca Leber: A Green New Infrastructure Deal?, Segment 1

1 month ago
Infrastructure is sort of the unsung hero of a functioning society. It's hard to get across town without a reliable road, hard to keep people healthy without clean drinking water, hard to fight climate change without ready renewable energy sources, and hard to right historical wrongs without accessible transit systems that support greater equity. This week on Sea Change Radio, we take a deep dive into the Biden Administration's proposed $2 trillion infrastructure bill with environmental journalist Rebecca Leber. We break down the bill's significant climate and energy-related policies, look at the politics surrounding it, and discuss whether the proposal should be considered part of Green New Deal legislation.

TUC Radio: Greenland Ice Going - Gone?, Segment 2

1 month ago
The mile thick Greenland ice sheet would raise the oceans of the world by 7 feet if all of it melted. Climate change deniers say this massive ice sheet, second only to the Arctic, could never thaw completely - or at a rate that concerns us. Examining a drill core collected during the Cold War and forgotten for almost 60 years, Andrew Christ and his Vermont Colleague Paul Bierman found evidence of plant life from less than a million years ago. They found frozen under nearly 1.4 km of ice, well-preserved fossil plants and biomolecules sourced from at least two ice-free warm periods in the past few million years. Andrew Christ was interviewed at the end of March 2021. Thanks to independent radio producer and friend Alex Smith for allowing me to re-broadcast this interview, first broadcast on his weekly Radio Ecoshock program.

1 month ago
The current coronavirus pandemic is more than a medical crisis, it is also a political and ideological crisis. It is a crisis deeply rooted in years of neglect by neoliberal governments that denied the importance of public health and the public good while defunding the institutions and decades of austerity. Latin Waves host Sylvia Richardson speaks with Jorge Marti about government’s response to the coronavirus in Western countries, the impact of decades of austerity and neoliberalism policies on health institutions. This pandemic is a call for an end to all sanctions, causing needless death.
