MULTIPLE Fukushima Events Await Nuclear Plants! w/ Arnie Gundersen
ONE in EIGHT chance per DECADE a Nuclear MELTDOWN(S) will occur! We are living on borrowed time.
What would happen to our electronic and digital world if terrorists detonated a nuclear bomb in space? Listen to Part 2 of Fairewinds’ interview with Matthew Stein. Arnie Gundersen and Mat discuss EMPs (electromagnetic pulses), and Mat explains the three different levels of EMPs, clarifying misconceptions. Arnie and Mat also explore the devastating damage such an attack would have on the world’s nuclear power plants. – See more at: http://www.fairewinds.org/emps-beatif…

Solar Storms: Sometimes the most beautiful natural phenomena can have devastating consequences. When the sun ejects hot charged particles into space, the Northern Lights are created here on Earth. Occasionally the sun erupts with huge quantities of particles (Coronal Mass Ejection) that can damage the earth’s electric systems. Renowned author Mat Stein and Arnie Gundersen discuss the dangers of a large coronal mass ejection on the electrical grid and on nuclear plants worldwide. – See more at: http://www.fairewinds.org/solarstorms…

BBC News – China takes Under the Dome anti-pollution film offline

There is widespread public concern in China over air pollution
Related Stories

The authorities in China have a removed from websites a popular documentary which highlights the country’s severe pollution problem.

Under the Dome explains the social and health costs of pollution, and was watched by more than 100 million people online, sparking debates.

It was removed just two days after Premier Li Keqiang called pollution a blight on people’s lives.

Mr Li had promised to fight it with all the government’s might.

The environmental issue has dominated the current session of the Chinese parliament, the National People’s Congress, in Beijing.

The newly appointed environmental protection minister, Chen Jining, had praised Under The Dome, telling reporters it should “encourage efforts by individuals to improve air quality”.

But the huge popularity of an impassioned, independent film on the issue appears to have made the communist authorities nervous, correspondents say.

Democracy’s High Stakes…Pay 2 Play


The Big Picture RT

Published on Sep 11, 2014

John Wellington Ennis, Pay 2 Play, joins Thom Hartmann. Director John Ennis looks upon our Monopoly-inspired system of government, and identifies how money in politics is the obstacle to any meaningful change. Studying the outlandish Coingate scandal in Ohio, Ennis grasps that the primary function of pay-to-play politics is to repay the donor with public money—way more money than donors put in.

Glenn Greenwald Criticizes NPR For Relying on CIA-Linked Firm in Report on Impact of Snowden Leaks


democracynow

Published on Aug 13, 2014

http://www.democracynow.org – Glenn Greenwald’s latest article for The Intercept is headlined, “NPR Is Laundering CIA Talking Points to Make You Scared of NSA Reporting.” Greenwald takes a highly critical look at a story by NPR’s counterterrorism correspondent, Dina Temple-Raston, which aired on Morning Edition earlier this month. Temple-Raston’s report focused on claims by the tech firm Recorded Future that it has “tangible evidence” that National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden harmed national security by prompting terrorists to develop more sophisticated encryption programs. Greenwald says the NPR erred in failing to mention that the firm is funded by the CIA. “This was such a pure and indisputable case of journalistic malpractice and deceit,” Greenwald charges. “NPR radically misled millions of people with this report.”

Living on Earth: Gus Speth Calls for a “New” Environmentalism

Gus Speth’s new memoir, Angels by the River, describes his evolution from accepting the status quo as a child, to working within mainstream environmentalism for environmental protection, to calling for “a new environmentalism.” (Photo: Chelsea Green Publishing)

In conversation with host Steve Curwood, NRDC co-founder Gus Speth reflects on the environmental movement both as a previous ‘insider’ and now as a reformer. In his new memoir “Angels by the River” Gus Speth calls for deeper challenges to the economic status quo, and explores his life and career at the nexus of race, environment and politics.

Transcript:

CURWOOD: James Gustave Speth is a veteran of the environmental movement, as a co-founder of the NRDC, founder of the World Resources Institute, CEO of the UN Development Programme and President Carter’s Chair of the Council on Environmental Quality. Despite having held several key positions in the mainstream of environmental policy, Gus Speth is now calling for a more urgent and demanding environmental movement, and he’s acting on these convictions. In 2011, he was arrested in front of the White House alongside Bill McKibben and others in a peaceful protest against the Keystone XL pipeline. He’s just written a memoir “Angels by the River” that examines how his Southern upbringing and career shaped the person he is today. Gus Speth joins us from his home in rural Vermont. Gus, welcome back to Living on Earth.

SPETH: Thank you Steve, it’s good to be back.

CURWOOD: Now, Gus, you grew up in the South in Orangeburg, South Carolina. What was it like to grow up there as a white person in the 50s and 60s?

SPETH: Orangeburg was an idyllic town in many ways, for certainly white people to grow up. It was thoroughly segregated, if you can imagine Jim Crow at its peak, we were there. By the time I got to Yale as an undergraduate it dawned on me in a major way that this was a system that was deeply unjust and degrading and something that we had to change. You know when the scaffolding of your cultural life and your upbringing sort of collapse around you, it can be disorienting because everything you were brought up to believe in and take as natural and inevitable, it all of a sudden disappears. And for me, I found it was very liberating experience. I realize that I could make up my own mind about things. I could decide what I thought was right and wrong and act on it.
