Either Radical Change Or Democracy Ends! (w/Richard Wolff)

Thom Hartmann Program

Dec 3, 2020

Radical change is required or we could say goodbye to Democracy forever. Can Biden rescue the economy from the Trump times? Downturns are circular, but with the current pandemic, a solid recovery is going to need serious radical change. Is mass public employment the solution?

Richard Wolff joined Thom to discuss what it needed from 2021 and beyond. Professor Richard Wolff is an Economist / Co-founder, Democracy At Work / Author of numerous books – his latest is The Sickness is the System: When Capitalism Fails to Save Us from Pandemics or Itself.

The People’s Agenda for Food Democracy

Organic Consumers Association

Streamed live 13 hours ago

Join us LIVE for a conversation with Vandana Shiva, Ronnie Cummins, Hans Herren and André Leu as we discuss how the poison cartel and tech billionaires have increased their control over our food systems with GMOs, pesticides and fake highly processed foods.

Their push for digital agriculture is an attempt to mine our data and turn it into the next external input. These billionaires are seeking to deregulate corporations and their tech tools while also pushing to increase policing and surveillance of the people. In the same way that Monsanto tried to make seed saving illegal, the poison cartel is now trying to use the pandemic to shut down small farms that produce healthy real food. We need to promote agroecology and organic agriculture to regenerate our food and farming systems and empower people to build truly free, fair and democratic societies.

The need for active participation of citizens in shaping Food Democracy, and the duty of governments at all levels to regulate for food democracy and protecting the planet and people has never been greater.

Managing cascading climate risk in global supply chains


Stockholm Environment Institute

Nov 10, 2020
Recorded on 10 November 2020.
“Building a climate-resilient and just future for all: managing cascading climate risk in global supply chains” Read more: https://www.sei.org/events/building-a

How can we better manage the cross-border effects of climate change and spur opportunities for just approaches to adaptation that bring co-benefits at scale? Join this online dialogue, which will shine a spotlight on industry and explore actions to strengthen the resilience of global supply chains.

Managing the cross-border effects of climate change
Supply chains are the arteries of the global economy. But how resilient are they to climate risk? And what role do they play in carrying risk between communities great distances apart? COVID-19 has brought the vulnerabilities inherent in our global trading systems into sharp relief – how impacts can leap from sector to sector and cascade from country to county – often hitting the poorest and most vulnerable the hardest.

Climate change can also catalyze such cascading effects – with both companies and communities bearing the brunt. Yet the way we plan adaptation often fails to reflect the realities of how risk is driven and distributed in the 21st century. And efforts to strengthen the resilience of supply chains could lead to the redistribution of vulnerability rather than its reduction outright.

This dialogue will shine a spotlight on industry and explore actions to strengthen the resilience of global supply chains to better manage the cross-border effects of climate change. It will also reveal opportunities for just approaches to adaptation that bring co-benefits at scale. If our connections to each other expose us to the transboundary nature of climate risk, they also present an opportunity to shape an inclusive and sustainable path to the future.

Bringing together representatives from the private sector, civil society, governments and international organizations, the dialogue will accelerate the transition towards a collaborative and coordinated approach to adaptation and a climate-resilient and just future for all.
