The Enviro 2006 Rites of Spring Show

What a week! You name it: say hello to the new boss at Interior, same as the old boss [except maybe Kempthorne wasn't in the sack with Abramoff, but hey! ya' never know!]; new nukes globalization [Jean will have more on that]; ANWAR provision passes in the bust-the-budget bill; Russ Feingold goes after King George here and here; more bad news on the global meltdown; and a perhaps brief reprieve for the so-called Clean Air Act. BUT, in spite of all that, another vernal equinox is upon us: IT'S SPRING! With that in mind [and with any luck] Tamara, our resident witch will be joining us to get on with the rites of spring. Later in the show, former Northampton Conservation Commissioner, Joanne Montgomery will join us to talk about the DPWs beaver eradication program.

Nuclear madness! Jean tells us about the new corporate-global push for the next generation of nukes; PLUS: what's up w/the Vernon nuke? Dare we ask?? We'll play a cut from Tom Neilson's just released disc titled "Fools no More". The tune, appropriately is called "Just a little meltdown". Tom is joined on the cut by Kat Allen and Derrik Jordan.

On our Bus stop billboard there are still anti-war events happening. Checkout WMass Indymedia here or WMass AFSC here. March 28 is the anniversary of the Three Mile Island meltdown. CAN has some events planned w/that in mind:

It seems that you have stolen my show. My name is John Haughton and I have been broadcasting the "ENVIRO" radio programme on NEAR FM 101.6 for the past ten years. So it was great to find your web pages and that you cover the same kind of topics as I do. Even to the extent of having your Bealtaine programme. I would like to link up with you on a future programme by phone and inform our listeners about what you are doing.. Let me know if you are interested in this.
my email is John
