TUC Radio: ARCHIVE: Fire and the Underground Life in the Forest, Segment 2

2 weeks 6 days ago
UPLOADED A DAY EARLY due to Fire in our area As California tries to come to terms with the largest and deadliest fires of 2019, 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. CREDITS This program is made up of short clips from the Steve Paikin interview of Wohlleben, a clip of Simard from an interview by Dan McKinney, followed by quotes from her frequent presentations on TED talks.

Venezuela and International Law vs US Government and CIA Creation Juan Guaido, Segment 1

3 weeks ago
Kevin Zeese speaks about how he and other US peace and justice activists decided to defend the Venezuelan Embassy from the US Government and it's coup plotters. With the permission of the Venezuelan government whom the US had forced to vacate their embassy, the Embassy Protection Collective occupied the building for 37 days, defending both the legitimate government rights and the Vienna Convention; the international law that protects a foreign embassy in the receiving country. In need of a public relations stunt to boost its failed coup attempt against Venezuela, the criminals running US foreign policy were handing over to coup supporters Venezuelan counselor offices in other cities to create the illusion that Trump supported traitor and clown Jaun Guaido had a legitimate government. The Embassy Protection Collective put a kink in the plan. Kevin Zeese tells how, and though eventually removed from the embassy when it was violated by Federal Agents what he thinks was won. At the end he and three others were arrested and charged. They are raising money for their defense and though facing a year in prison and $100,000 fine for interfering with protective services, are looking forward to the jury trial. The Feds have tried to bury them with irrelevant discovery while they are demanding to see all communications between the Feds and the Maduro government during the stand off. Zeese speaks of that as well.
