• An Enemy of the People

    10 GIU 2024 · We’re talking this week with the three Extinction Rebellion activists who disrupted a live performance of An Enemy of the People by Henrik Ibsen on Broadway. The parallels between that 19th century play and the 21st century climate crisis are so strong that critics had to call the theater to confirm that our protest was not part of the production. Matt, the host, less disruptively contributed to the same show in London. The message? There is No Theatre on a Dead Planet.

  • The Wretched of Mother Earth

    16 MAG 2024 · How can we be still within ourselves in the face of climate catastrophe and yet active in the world at the same time? Mindful activists, including climate activists, always wrestle with some version of this question. Alycee Lane found her answer amid a deeply personal loss -- the death of her parents -- which inspired her to write The Wretched of Mother Earth: The Handbook for Living, Dying and Nonviolent Revolution in the Midst of Climate Change Catastrophe. The book weaves real data about the climate crisis with a fictional story of the future. In so doing, it challenges us to both sit with and face the prospect of climate-driven human extinction and stop – through radical nonviolence – the forces driving us to that unimaginable end. The Wretched of Mother Earth is an ebook available on numerous platforms, including https://www.amazon.com/Wretched-Mother-Earth-Nonviolent-Catastrophe-ebook/dp/B07BHWRJ9K.

  • Polluters Left to Regulate Themselves

    25 APR 2024 · We can't tackle the climate emergency without some level of government regulation. Those regulations don't work unless they are enforced. But enforcement isn't happening, not very widely anyway. To understand how and why environmental protections are not being enforced in both the U.S. and the U.K., we talk with Eleanor Godwin, the researcher who compiled and published this information. Eleanor gives clear data to help us see how the U.S. and U.K. leave polluters to regulate themselves. Environmental regulation has declined into helpless and almost meaningless inadequacy.

  • Destroying Lives and Destroying Fossil Fuels

    20 APR 2024 · The Ukraine war is increasingly intersecting with climate. The U.S. has asked Ukraine to stop bombing Russian oil so gasoline prices can stay low. It has also stopped enforcing restrictions on Russian oil exports. Meanwhile the $60 billion aid package is languishing amid Congressional gridlock (as of this recording on April 18, 2024), and we get into real talk about why that is and what could be done about it.

  • Am I Too Old to Save the Planet?

    7 APR 2024 · Welcome to a consciously multi-generational conversation with Lawrence MacDonald, author of the book Am I Too Old to Save the Planet? A Boomers Guide to Climate Action. We discuss how to plug into climate activism, and which forms of climate activism to plug into. It's pitched to older folks, but people who aren't seniors can use a lot of this advice as well. So what's the short answer to the question? No, elders! You are not too old for to save the planet! In fact, age can present some great advantages when it comes to climate activism.

  • Mutual Aid in the Climate Crisis

    25 FEB 2024 · People are always helping one another cope with troubles and shortages and disasters. When that assistance is organized as a collaborative exchange of help, it's sometimes called a "mutual aid society." As we increasingly get walloped by the climate crisis, we're going to need mutual aid societies more than ever before. For this episode, Jack Baldwin looks at one mutual aid society in Austin, Texas that tries to aid vulnerable local folks cope with extreme heat and extreme weather. You're going to hear from Sasha Rose and Fran Tay-too of the group Austin Mutual Aid.

  • Climate Disasters Right Now

    4 FEB 2024 · Let's look back at the climate disasters of the last six months or so of 2023. There were many, and most of them were never covered in the U.S. mass media. Running through these disasters rapid fire will hopefully show how dire the climate crisis is--not years from now, not for the next century, not for our grandkids, but for us. Right now.
