Most modern injected radiographic positive contrast media are iodine-based. These and many other technologies are being promoted as the way for humanity to become something radically different. Nucleotides can also function in other cell processes, like signaling. Login or sign up. Lawless Leaders Manipulating the World — Financial expert Catherine Austin Fitts says the world is increasingly being changed by our leaders through criminal behavior.

Dissident BBC reporter Tony Gosling examines connections between recent terrorist events and sketches out a highly compelling picture of darker forces at work.
Gosling and his interviewer occasionally go too far in their ruminations; for instance, I think the idea that financially troubled Charlie Hebdo might have murdered itself as a publicity stunt to avoid going out of business is plain stupid. The attack as a black-op bitch-slap of France for its recent non-compliance with US geopolitical strategies is a much more compelling angle.
Broadly speaking, though, most of the ideas presented in the two hours are fairly on-target. He also reminds us that US employments statistics are greatly manipulated. He says that Greece serves as an object lesson for the elites—push too far, and the populace will finally push back.
As for money dominating politics, he says the problem afflicts both Democrats and Republicans and their agendas.
Wolff says our best bet is to reinvigorate the working class through organization and political action independent of the entreched duopoly parties. The elites keep the left and right of the middle class busy pointing fingers at each other and, occasionally, at other factors like immigrants and terrorists.
But the war never really was between left and right or liberals and conservatives. It's between up and down. And the ups are cleaning our clocks—and our bank accounts. Conversation with Richard Wolff: Endless War, Endless War Spin — As Obama talks about a new major cycle of the war on terror—this time against the Islamic State—Norman Solomon of the Institute for Public Accuracy says Obama talks about not being interested in "endless war" but is doing more than any previous president to engage the US in exactly that.
Solomon also says Brain Williams' worst lies about war were not his exaggerations of his personal experiences reporting from danger zones but rather his parroting the war propaganda of both the Bush and Obama administrations and his failure to challenge any aspect of the corrupt endless-war agenda. Of course, all the big names in media did the same. Solomon is very good here. The title of his book gives some indication of his tone: Why Ian Anderson named one of Jethro Tull's most famous songs after an old diving apparatus; how the popular TV show "Family Ties" resurrected a little-unknown single by Billy Vera and the Beaters and pushed it to 1; the shocking story of how the most depressing song ever written—"Gloomy Sunday"—led to scores of suicides.
The "Gloomy Sunday" story is truly shocking. I wish he'd played the Billie Holiday version of the song—Elvis Costello singing a torch song is enough to drive anyone to the window ledge. Understanding the Roots of Terrorism—Theirs and Ours — Much of President Obama's record-breaking defense budget proposal will fund proxy wars around the globe.
Drone strikes continue to take their toll in Yemen and elsewhere. Chris Hedges says most Americans accept the myth of American rightness and do-goodism while ignoring the obvious parallels in the terrorism practiced by the US and the terrorism practiced by ISIS and their ilk. He says the empire is not only busy abroad but is also quietly pre-positioning suppressive-force capabilities on the home front, in preparation for the inevitable pushback from the masses as their impoverishment worsens.
Many excellent points in this one. About Coal — Coal is a world-class environmental wrecking ball, with impacts affecting climate, mountains, streams, air pollution, food quality, and more.
But hey don't worry about that; American jobs are at stake. It's a tax-exempt organization that's been pumping out the big-business message for over 30 years. Here's an example of some recent NCPA coal propaganda: Coal, good for the environment?
Not so fast, mister Despite all the talk about moving away from coal, the pace is slow and mostly driven by economics, not concern for the environment or climate change. But there are thousands more photos of detainee abuse and torture—some depicting scenes worse than those in the original release—that the government has long concealed from the public, stating that it feared violent repercussions.
The ACLU's Jameel Jaffer says the prospect of violence is a faulty argument for government secrecy about its own misconduct. Sunshine is the best disinfectant. Thousands of Secret Torture Photos. Organic Eggs—What's The Difference? Organic eggs use better feed and have better growing conditions, but access to outdoors is sometimes more theory than practice in large organic operations.
She rightly promotes eggs from backyard chickens as the best choice, with eggs from pastured chickens another good way to go.
All that is correct. But McCaffrey also asserts that most people who are use pastured hens to raise eggs are also using organic or non-GMO feed. I suspect not even a majority of them do. I agree that pastured eggs are a top priority, but shoppers should also look for the organic or GMO-free labels. And "cage-free" usually means "in a crowded barn," and there is no rule that cage-free chickens must have access to outdoors. The first is Twilight's Last Gleaming , a geo-political thriller where a declining United States and a resurgent China come to the brink of all-out nuclear war.
The other novel is Star's Reach: A Novel of the Deindustrial Future , which is set in a world shaped by the exhaustion of fossil fuels, where new social forms have replaced our familiar institutions and where new ways of inhabiting the North American continent have been necessitated by centuries of climate change.
I haven't read the books, but it's always interesting to get glimpses of possible future scenarios. Zombie Banks Using Negative Interest Rates to Eat Depositors' Money — Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss whether negative savings rates will be applied to retail savers in Europe, where commercial bank customers are already having to pay to park their money.
Do banks no longer need to receive deposits or make loans because they are no longer really banks? Then Max interviews filmmaker and author Kerry-anne Mendoza about her new top selling book, Austerity: The world of banking is getting plain weird. The urgency to keep revenue flowing in spite of the dead weight that should have many of these banks six-feet-under—and the complicity of regulators and central banks—mean there will definitely be another financial crisis in our future.
Microsoft summarily dismissed Bowden from his job as head of privacy after he raised privacy issues related to Microsoft's products and services, and he has spent the last 3 years alerting people to the danger. I have a great deal of respect for these speakers and what they have to say. But, for whatever the reasons, they asciduously avoid or deny the deep issues of a the spies now operating with impunity; and b the NSA, CIA, and DIA operating in service of the US imperial operation, not national interests.
Host Robin Upton summarizes the problem nicely: The approach would reclassify the internet as a public utility, like the phone system. The commision's vote is still weeks away, but questions remain. The FCC's oversight of industry to date might be described as having been "helpful"; so will this new proposal have teeth and actually maintain an even playing field on the Internet? Craig Aaron of Free Press discusses. Since the FCC is stacked with revolving-door players from industry, it's hard to imagine the regulators are just going to "do the right thing" for the public.
I note that Wheeler explicitly procalimed that the new rules would protect mobile broadband users. What about home internet service? Food Hubs — Erik Hoffner talks about the local food movement, focusing on the exciting development of "food hubs" that are springing up across the country. He describes the opportunities of scale and collaboration food hubs and related innovations are providing for local food entrepreneurs. Also discussed are energy cooperatives, fair trade, and the prospects for sustainable agriculture to replace the industrial model.
This is probably going to be of most interest to farmers and small processors, but these are good trends for everyone to be hearing about. Armageddon — The War Within — As framed here, Armageddon is not really about a final battle of the world's great armies, it is a process of resolving the internal conflicts in us humans. Though the system run by The Powers That Be is palpably corrupt, we have become so dependent on it, we cannot voluntarily let it go.
Simultaneously, most people have lost their way, prioritizing materialism and self-obsessed goals over a peaceful, loving existence.
The Armageddon process will break the system, and therefore begin the liberation process. While our time-limited physical form may perish, the inner heart-based eternal self will be renewed.
This is an interesting merge of Christian end-times philosophy with new-agey consciousness and cosmic awareness. There are a few points where the visuals help put the audio in context, but for the most part, you can get by just listening to the MP3, if that is your wont.
The Real World of Money. The Exchange Stabilization Fund is part of the rigged game on the global exchanges. You wanna go up against that, be my guest. Some of this is a bit speculative, but most of it is very on-target.
A New Cold War? Will It Go Hot? As fighting intensifies, the Obama administration is now considering directly arming Ukrainian forces against Russian-backed rebels. Washington already supplies non-lethal military equipment to Ukraine, but top officials are reportedly leaning toward sending arms, from rifles to anti-tank weapons. Stephen Cohen, professor of Russian studies and politics, comments.
Weighs Arming Kiev as Violence Soars. He's an expert in areas such as coral reef science and global climate change. Two of the main points Goreau makes are that the IPCC's window of focus is much too narrow—most of the worst climate effects will be beyond its year window—and its conclusions are so "lowest common denominator" that they are greatly underestimating both the data trends and coming impacts.
He also says that the "" goal is far too high—if we accept even that currently politically unattainable goal, we are doomed to a temperature increase of degrees C. Goreau says atmospheric CO2 levels need to be rolled back to ppm. He says the essential solution—mostly ignored by global leaders—is to put carbon back in the soil using practices such as biochar.
Watch if you can—lots of good graphs. How Soil Carbon Sequestration Works. Host Alex Wise reviews the issues with Richard Heinberg of the Post Carbon Institute and gets his perspective on how plunging oil prices will affect the energy and transportation industries; the status of the North American natural gas boom; how the turbulence may alter consumer behavior in the near term; and the need for sound policy to guide us through the long-term challenge of living in a post-carbon world.
Heinberg is solid as usual, though if you have heard his other interviews in the last six months, you will not find much new here. Fun stuff if you're a fan of the music. Vanguard of the Revolution tells the history of the Black Panther Party through rare archival footage and interviews with party leaders, rank-and-file members, journalists, and even police and FBI informants.
This clip features extended excerpts from the film, as well as interviews with Kathleen Cleaver, who served as communications secretary of the Black Panther Party, and Stanley Nelson, the film's director. The Black Panthers were an important movement in American history and remain an important object lesson for those who would engage in the fight against empire.
Transhumanist Man's Scientific Rise to Godhood — Artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, implantable chips, and life extension. These and many other technologies are being promoted as the way for humanity to become something radically different.
The transhumanist movement claims that by applying such technologies to our biology, we will become post-human—and that this would be a good thing. But behind this techno-utopian vision lurk the spectres of eugenics, mind control, police state propaganda, the end of privacy, and maybe even the end of the human race itself. Is a new religion for a new age being born, arising from a scientific and increasingly sinister quest for eternal life?
Guest Aaron Franz discusses. It feels natural to like gadgets. But we're already seeing the information stream associated with our gadgets used inappropriately, and that is just the beginning of our descent into the control matrix, if the transhumanist vision is anything like out actual future.
The Cornucopia Institute and the Organic Consumers Association—not to be confused with its evil name-twin the Organic Trade Association—are among the few things that keep the agribusiness juggernaut from crushing the value of the USDA organic standard which is already a lower standard than it should be! Powerful Counterforces and Ugly Days Ahead for the American Empire — Geopolitics analyst Jim Willie discusses world events in the context of the monetary wars that continue to unfold.
A lot of what Willie says sounds dead-on. But he's one of those guys who has "deep sources. In this case, I'm thinking of Willie's discussion of the powerful "Eastern white hats" that are poised to take down the Western black hats and restore peace and ecological balance to the planet.
Sounds like a classic "external savior meme" to me—that is, we who are worried about totalitarianism and might otherwise rise up can relax and feel reassured that heroic forces will save us. Beginning of the End For Oil Production — Gail "the Actuary" Tverberg discusses the recent sharp down-trend in the price of oil, the unfolding collapse in the shale-oil industry, and why this is ushering in a permanent turndown in oil production.
Sees the global economy caught between the Scylla and Charybdis of too-low or too-high oil prices, with central banking games and Wall Street derivatives the highly combustible factors that will light a brush fire that will burn through the companies in the oil industry and eventually blow up the rest of the financial world too.
I found this a bit dense and difficult to stay interested in, but there is some good info here. Dispatches from Weimar America — This show features various authors and activists talking about state surveillance and unchecked power in the US. First, Mark Crispin Miller discusses Project Censored's "forbidden bookshelf" project, which aims to republish in electronic form books that governments have tried to suppress.
Then Alfred McCoy explains the extent of the surveillance systems underway, saying they far exceed the Snowden disclosures.
Naomi Wolf explains why the Snowden story may be something other than what we think it is. Heidi Boghosian talks about the death of democracy", followed by Chris Hedges offering a personal reflection on the psychology of the super-rich.
He and his family then died in what has been officially called a murder-suicide. Lots of really good stuff here. On the Snowden question, he made the public aware of at least part of the illegal government spying on citizens that's been going on. Now, if the public does not rise up and put a stop to it, then those doing the current illegal spying will know they have carte blanche to do whatever they want in the future.
Whether they put Snowden up to it because they wanted the question answered or whether Snowden is a legitimate whistleblower is far less important than whether Big Brother gets the green light. Anit-Inflammatory Properties of Glycine — Because most of us don't cook bones and cartilage into soup as previous generations did, we're missing essential nutrients, glycine among them.
Joel Brind talks explains why the amino acid glycine is essential to regulating your body's inflammation. He recommends glycine supplementation, and talks about a study that suggests this can also be helpful for those facing type II diabetes. I've had some success with one specific form of magnesium that include glycine. Now I know why. The solution should be equally obvious: James Corbett reviews some of the evidence against the industrial food model and then explores growing your own as a simple, natural solution to one of our most fundamental problems.
This is a good primer for those who are relatively new to these issues. If you've been grappling with the issue of industrial food for a while, you probably won't hear much new here.
See GP's page for gardening and agriculture audio for additional shows on those topics. Episode -- Solutions: Classic comedy clips pepper the show. Cleese is probably one of the top 10 comedians of all time. Publishing hacked emails showing bad corporate ethics. Supporters say Brown has been unfairly targeted for investigating the highly secretive world of private intelligence and military contractors. Three years later, after admitting to being the story's source, he was fired. Based on this case, the US Supreme Court has upheld the right of federal employees to become whistleblowers.
You have to admire Brown's steely sense of humor: After his sentencing on Thursday, Brown released a satirical statement that read, in part: The US government decided today that because I did such a good job investigating the cyber-industrial complex, they're now going to send me to investigate the prison-industrial complex. There are a few potential downsides, she says, but for most people, the data overwhelmingly show that coffee and caffeine help reduce risk in just about every major disease category.
I was actually surprised there weren't more cautions against coffee consumption here. I do have to wonder, though, how much of the protective effect is merely counterbalancing other bad habits. Nonetheless, since we are indeed creatures of bad habit, carry on with the slurping!
Weed does add that while the coffee itself is good, the other things some of us put in it are The Grand Manipulation — Trends forecaster Gerald Celente talks about where things are and where they are going. He thinks the current political parties and leaders are beyond redemption, though he thinks a new, completely unaffiliated party is worth trying. He says four words killed capitalism: Too Big To Fail.
Celente has said most of this before, but he's always worth a listen. One point of disagreement: I don't see how a third party makes it when the Republicrat duopoly controls the election rules.
Smarter Cities — Many planners agree that a more centralized population is a good thing for long-term environmental responsibility. But as people all over the world continue to flock to urban centers, the challenge of creating sustainable cities becomes more pressing. How can cities be improved to ensure that their billions of residents have energy-efficient transportation, housing, waste-stream management, as well as clean air and water?
Ecological urban planner Melanie Nutter walks us through some of the emerging policies and practices to promote smart, sustainable, resilient cities. Nutter has good ideas, and they seem to be fairly successful in San Francisco. But the success largely depends on the target city being highly prosperous in general and green-minded specifically. Many of these programs simply would not sell politically or economically in, say, Atlanta. I'm not saying Atlantans shouldn't get on board with such ideas; just that it's not likely to happen on nearly the same scale as it has in SF.
Obama stressed civil liberties but was silent on renewal of the odious PATRIOT Act; he said there should be more domestic oil and gas production but also warned of climate change, which would be worsened by that production; Obama stressed workers rights and unions but then emphasized the need to fast track approval of the anti-worker Trans-Pacific Partnership trade act. Nader also criticized Obama for ignoring issues like commercial fraud on Medicare and Medicaid; a DoD audit; and corporate tax evasion.
And, as Nader points out, Obama—almost unbelievably—talks again about closing down Gitmo, after six years of broken promises on that very issue. No doubt he has a bridge to tomorrow he'd like to sell us. We can't keep this crazy civilization running just on the sun and wind, let alone on high doses of fossil fuels. When we stop being able to milk the billion year-pile of concentrated solar energy in the form of oil, gas, and coal, something WILL change.
Our energy matrix cannot be renewable until the renewable-energy technologies and sources can replicate themselves. Wind turbines, solar panels, and electric cars are all hobbled by the limitations of fossil fuel inputs for their creation and maintenance as well as by the specialized minerals needed for their creation.
He acknowledges the psychology of the American energy consumer as a key problem, referencing former Energy Department Secretary James Schlesinger's axiom that the American people only have two modes: This is one of the best reviews I've ever heard of the problems we face as demand for energy keeps rising but technology finds itself unable to compensate for the peak in global net energy.
Green Dreams - Future or Fantasy? The Deep State and the Paris Attacks — Michel Chossudovsky looks at the circumstances and backstory of the Charlie Hebdo attack, with an eye towards poking holes in the official story. Interesting factors include the "suicide" of a French detective a few hours after being debriefed on the attacks; whether the supposed perpetrators were in some way involved with French intelligence agencies; the hypocrisy of the French government decrying attacks on press freedom while engaging in suppression of reporting themselves.
Chossudovsky also talks about state-sponsored terrorism by the major Western powers; the larger geopolitical game as it pertains to France and the US; and the new inquisitorial age, where the general public does not question the need to eliminate those labeled "enemy" at any cost, using any means. Chossudovsky reaches a bit on some of his speculations, but there are many points that need consideration here, no matter how odious the implications are.
Try to watch this one—cool graphics. From , but still perfectly relevant. The Skinny Gut Diet — When it comes to digestive disorders, Brenda Watson has dedicated her career to helping people achieve lasting health through improved digestive function.
She's good, but for me, too much time was spent on "fat bacteria. Cash, Bank Accounts, Homes Since then, many states have passed laws forbidding seizure for that reason, but abusive practices are still happening.
Phil Applebaum of the Institute for Justice discusses the case of a small Indiana town where the mayor proposed taking over an entire housing neighborhood for an unspecified future development plan.
This may not be widely applicable—yet. But it's always good to keep an eye on government overreach. Oreskes discusses how democracy, the free market, and science are all failing to protect our future. This dance doesn't include much climate apocalypso, but Oreskes ably lays out the inside-the-envelope view on climate status and action. In reality, any progress made on transitioning out of fossil fuels will come too slowly to make a difference in our future climate.
But it will make a difference in many other environmental areas, so it's still worth doing. This was the question that Hofstra University posed to a debate panel in late Arnie Gundersen of Fairewinds was among the debaters who discussed the environmental, fiscal, and policy issues pertaining to the expansion of nuclear energy. Even if one assumed sufficient additional nuclear capacity could be brought online in time to make a difference for climate mitigation—it can't—the answer is still "hell no.
Nuclear proponents have faith that humans are smart enough to figure out how to store radioactive nuclear waste for a quarter million years. Alternative energy proponents have faith that humans are smart enough to figure out how to store electricity overnight. He sees an emerging Asian bloc centered on Russia and China cooperation.
Orlov also talks about the large jump in numbers of people paying attention to the truth of what's going on via his blog and other alternatives to mainstream media. Other topics include the energy-money game going on between the US, Europe, and Russia; why Grand Chessboard master Zbigniew Brzezinski is punking US interests for his own agenda; and the non likelihood of a major conflict between the US and Russia. He clearly gives a pro-Russia slant, but his details seem convincing enough.
Economics of the Anthropocene — Joshua Farley discusses how the human dominated epoch—the anthropocene—has evolved an economic model that is unsustainable—it's hitting resource and environmental limits—and he outlines the need to shift the basis of the economy from competitiveness to cooperation.
A reasonable proposition, but Farley seems hurried and slightly out-of-focus here. But Jeremy Scahill calls the leaders' attendance a "circus of hypocrisy" since those same leaders have waged their own wars against journalists.
He recounts numerous examples ranging from media suppression to whistleblower prosecution to outright murder. Scahill is, as usual, on-target. Sometimes I wonder what more he'd say in a quiet one-on-one conversation over a beer. Futuristic Predictions That Came True in — Futurist George Dvorsky talks about 's "breakthroughs" in science, technology, and culture, some of which seem right out of a sci-fi novel.
This year, humanity landed on its first comet, a child was born to a woman with a transplanted womb, a fossilized sea shell forced us to reconsider our conceptions of human culture, and two people achieved silent brain-to-brain communication.
Are we finally heading to the brave new Star Trek world? No, we're in total denial about the deep, perhaps unfixable flaws in the human experiment on this planet, so we compensate with increasingly complicated and weird experiments in science.
Charlie Hebdo and the Muck-a-lot Factory — Charlie Hebdo magazine is notorious for its irreverent satirical cartoons, attacking all sides, particularly those who finger-wag their conservative values. In the wake of the murderous attack on Charlie Hebdo, professor Laurence Grove reviews how French culture has held political cartoons in high regard for centuries. The attack on Charlie Hebdo employees may certainly be just as it's been reported.
But I also note the alignment of other possible interests: In part 1, Ozzie Zehner makes the case that high-tech greening of our civilization is a pipedream. In particular, he targets solar PV as a technology that causes many more problems that it's worth, and is often use as a "green badge of honor" when other, less sexy approaches do far more to reduce energy use and pollution.
Both Zehner and Miller engage in excessively vague statements, and bless Alex Smith for spending time at the end of part 2 to try to make sense of it all. Even as a supporter and heavy user of solar technologies, I'm much more in the Zehner camp on this one, despite the obvious problems with some of his statements.
We're headed for a resource cliff at some point because we cannot reign in our desires for more—more energy, more land, more stuff. Green tech cannot cure that. The Most Underreported Stories of — Project Censored is out with a new addition of their annual "unreported stories" book. Cancer—Environmental Factors and Genetics vs. Plain Ol' Bad Luck — A new study has found that 22 types of cancer are the result of sheer bad luck, blaming the cancers largely on random mistakes in tissue-specific stem cells and stating that the cancers arise in a manner unrelated to genetic or environmental factors.
This is a pretty tepid report, but the takeaway should be that the defenders of corporations' toxic products and processes now have a study to point to and say, "see, no problem" As Mark Twain cautioned, there are lies, damn lies, and statistics. The Science of Health: Cautions Against New Cancer Study. The Temptation of The Technofix — In this audio of speeches from the conference "Techno-Utopianism and the Fate of the Earth," we hear seven speakers who, despite contrasting styles and material, manage to jointly conclude that technological development has become unhinged from our true human values.
Topics include technology's history of broken promises; how technology is devastating life; how technology has tamed us, as we use it to unintentionally destroy life on earth and ourselves; challenging the idea of "de-extinction" as a solution; the economic evolution of dominion.
This starts out strong, but I found my attention waning in the latter half, where we get heart-felt analyses of how far humans have strayed from the path. That is true, for sure, but I don't think it's fixable—at least it won't be volunteered for—so why keep rehashing it? Profits Before Patient Safety exposes the way the pharmaceutical industry has come to dominate medicine.
This clip features snippets from the film and interviews with filmmaker Holly Mosher, medical investigative journalist Jeanne Lenzer, and family doctor John Abramson. We all are well advised to stay away from the products of the pharmaceutical industry as much as possible.
Once they get their claws in you, it's a downward spiral of "drugs to cure ills and other drugs to cure side effects. Wheeler's earlier proposal for a two-tier system outraged consumers, advocacy organizations, and even some corporations.
Media professor Victor Pickard discusses the history of "media in the public interest" going back to the s rise of radio and details the political decisions and turning points that led to our present-day corporate-dominated media system.
The historical information here is interesting. But the trend towards concentrated media monopolies that do not operate in the public interest is merely reflective of the increasing alignment of the goals of government, corporations, and elites. Speculation about other reasons—such as a "corporate-libertarian paradigm" or a throwback to the McCarthy era—are just silly. World-View Propaganda — Jay Dyer writes on the deeper themes and messages found in our globalist pseudo-culture, illustrating the connections between philosophy, metaphysics, secret societies, Hollywood, psychological warfare and comparative religion.
Dyer explains how philosophies can be engineered and used as forms of psyop—a trap of empiricism that ultimately leads to false presuppositions. Dyer does us a service by presenting the concept that a deep, deep level of propaganda is used to shape the world view of the masses, which then makes it easier for the elites to sell specific-issue propaganda that allows them to maintain their wealth and power.
But the discussion here is mostly lost in esoteric topics of philosophy. We would have benefited more from a discussion of how the concepts manifest in today's increasingly totalitarian world, where most people are so propagandized they will actively defend a system that exploits them. The study finds that tight-oil production from major plays will peak before By , production rates from the Bakken and Eagle Ford will likely be less than a tenth of that projected by the EIA.
The overall tight-oil production forecasts by the EIA from plays other than the Bakken and Eagle Ford are in most cases highly optimistic and unlikely to be realized. Hughes observes that on the oil fields, in the battle between technology and geology, geology always wins in the end. This gets a bit down in the weeds, but such data diving is necessary to be able to convincingly refute the rah-rah shale oil hype in the US.
McChesney offers plenty of apt observations, but his overall framing is limited to the issues that might be considered "safe for NPR listeners. When the sun ejects hot charged particles into space, the Northern Lights are created here on Earth. Occasionally, the sun erupts with such huge quantities of particles—a coronoal mass ejection—that electronics and electrical grids can be damaged. Mat Stein and Arnie Gundersen discuss the dangers to our electrical systems and nuclear power plants worldwide from a large coronal mass ejection.
Stein reviews a number of little-know previous major coronal-mass-ejection events and gives us the math that shows that we are overdue for another one. The Pitfalls of Getting Resilient — This report features Jan Steinman, who cashed out from his IT gig to start a resilient eco-village as a response to a post-peak oil future and civilizational breakdown.
