The Enviro Critters Show, Part 1
Check-out the GOOD NEWS on Big Mountain (below). We read a little on this from the alleged "paper of record".
Brad Compton, wildlife biologist at UMass, joined us to discuss the Endangered Species Act(ESA) and the beating it's taking on Capitol Hill. We had a look at NRDC's take on Senator Crapo's (we're not making this up.....really!) assault on the ESA, as well as the police report on Rep. Pombo's assault on the ESA last year. Listeners might want to TAKE ACTION on this critical issue. After all, we DO share this small blue planet with others.....but hey, we don't need to tell you that, right?
We had a good laugh at the Bush regime for their bogus move to add hatchery fish to the wild salmon count. A reprint in Green Living caught our eye on this. The original article appeared in The Ecologist (sorry, have to sign-up for that one), talking about the Enemies of the Earth trying to inflate, skew, or otherwise fuck with the numbers so they can go on destroying the planet at will.
As you may have heard: Jean is REALLY back! She told us about her adventures in Hong Kong with the WTO and that low-life org's efforts to endanger just about EVERYTHING!!
Next time, for Part 2 of The Enviro Critters Show, we'll have a look at some local issues (naturally, WalMart figures in on this one). Sooooo, remember as you find your way through the mists in the doorway of 2006: Listen to your Mother.
