Building Bridges: Climate Crisis and the Global Green New Deal , Segment 1

3 months 1 week ago
Climate Crisis and the Global Green New DealfeaturingRobert Pollin, Distinguished University Professor of Economics and Co-Director of the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. His books include Greening the Global Economy, Back to Full Employment (2012), and A Measure of Fairness: The Economics of Living Wages and Minimum Wages in the United States. Robert Pollin, the renowned progressive economist maps out the catastrophic consequences of unchecked climate change"and presents a realistic blueprint for change: the Green New Deal. Pollin shows how the forecasts for a hotter planet strain the imagination: vast stretches of the Earth will become uninhabitable, plagued by extreme weather, drought, rising seas, and crop failure. Arguing against the misplaced fear of economic disaster and unemployment arising from the transition to a green economy, he shows this bogus concern encourages climate denialism. Climate change is an emergency that cannot be ignored and Pollin doesnt!

Radio Thrift Shop is DJ Frederick's decade long (and counting) experiment, having evolved from his Seldom Heard Radio in 2011. Radio Thrift Shop has a flexible format & an homage to the "underground" era of broadcasts of the 1960's and 1970's that DJ Frederick grew up listening to & features a homegrown mix of vinyl records, 78s, 45's, LPs, private press releases, and a variety of cassette tapes and homemade / self released cassettes & cds. Each broadcast of Radio Thrift Shop features an improvised or thematic playlist from DJ Frederick's music library. It's never the same program twice. Or even once.

New World Notes: #657 -- True to Earth, Part 1 , Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
A classic audio collage by Virtual Renderings, condensed a bit by KD. It explores the root of today's social, economic, and environmental crises: Western civilization's out-of-touch-ness with the natural world. American Indians provide better examples of how to live in the world. Included: the greatest Navajo insult, why hunter-gatherers lived longer and better than farmers, and other interesting ideas. The piece blends commentary by indigenous people and Euro-Americans, plus a good deal of music.
