For our E-Valley-uation segment we'll be joined by some of The Pedal People, Northampton's favorite two-wheeling worker bees who'll be telling us about the joys of biking as opposed to the monotony and mayhem of motoring. These folks get the Climate Disruption Disrupters award of excellence, and with the December 3rd International Day of Action to Stop Global Warming nearly upon us, we need all the positive responses we can generate. With that in mind, we'll have a SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT on Tuesday's show about something YOU can do to further the struggle against climate disruption right here in the Valley.
After some entertaining bicycle tunes, we'll turn to Doug Renick of Mass Global Action for a bit of catch-up on the "Act to Preserve Public Water and Sewer Systems" (HB1333) in Massachusetts. Enviro Show listeners know how fond we are of corporados who try privatizing every element in sight. Water is, of course, YOUR birthright, it's PART OF THE COMMONWEALTH, HELLO?? but you'd never know it by watching the corporations at work. While we're not to crazy about the old 20th century idea of using potable water to transport human waste products around, we'll be damned if we'll let a bunch of vile corporados take over the operation. Doug will bring us up to...err..snuff? on the attempt to privatize Holyoke's sewer system as well as other water issues. In the near future we hope to devote an entire show to water.
Then it's on to the Bulletin Board (should we call it the Bus Stop Billboard in honor of that old Valley tradition?). We have, first and foremost, that SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT we'll be sure to remind you about over-and-over-and-over again, as well as "An Update on Global Warming with UMass Prof Raymond Bradley", December 4, 7pm at First Churches in Noho. You may recall his name from our interview with Chris Mooney on our last show. Bradley's pioneering work on climate change was challenged in Congress by that far-right nutcase, Rep. Joe Barton. Also on the...um..Bus Stop?
"What Powers Your Car? A Panel Discussion on Vegetable Oil Fuel in the Valley". So, if it feels too cold for biking, jump into your greese car and turn on the radio to 103.3fm! That would be Tuesday at 6pm.....right?
