Radio Ecoshock Show November 5, 2010
SHOW CREDITS: (for radio stations)
Jeff Tumlin recorded by Alex Smith, at the Gaining Ground Summit, Vancouver October 7th, 2010.
Odd clips from "Telstar" by the Tornados (1962); the Discovery Channel special (2006) "Perfect Disaster: Solar Storm"; global warming song (via You tube) from FLEP09, The Family Life Education Pasefika, New Zealand.
There is optimism - and then there's the facts. Welcome to Radio Ecoshock. We have a triple-header for you this week.
The Watchman is going to rattle out danger - with a brain wave escape hatch - as I interview California author Rebecca Costa.
Transportation planner Jeff Tumlin gives a short, stark warning speech about how cars make us fat, sick, and dead. Good commuting fare.
And we'll wrap up with happy bad news for the inner Doomster - NASA's new project to blackout your city, before the next Solar Storm starts the Long Emergency. Could it be the knock-out blow?
I don't mind if the future is scared and miserable. I just want my toilet to keep on working - and now the Sun wants to screw with my plumbing!
Do you think I'm crazy? NASA said so!
Keep listening.... and reading.
