The Enviro Back to the Pleistocene Show




One of our favorite local wildlife biologists, Jennifer Seavey, returned to talk about....well, bringing back the mastodons! We checked out the latest from the usual suspects at Wild Earth and their plans to re-wild Turtle Island (never heard of that place? YOUR LIVING ON IT!...unless you're reading this from somewhere other than the U.S.). Also, wildlife overpasses! Not many U.S. flags hanging from them.....we hope.



It’s Revenge of the Critters once again. This week: Bambi Attacks! Then we had a listen to another of Neil Young's latest whacks at the present occupants in the White House and their neocon goons, "After the Garden is Gone". That set us up nicely for our traditional Bush bashing. It’s the Neocon Crash & Burn Watch! We love it! Some folks make maps of other peoples oil fields,like Iraq's for instance, when Darth Cheney’s Energy Task Force divided up the spoils back in March 2001 waaaaay BEFORE 9/11...hmmmmm, interesting timing, no?. Others make bioregional maps, but we’ll get to that shortly.



Also, A study commissioned by the Bush regime concluded that the lower atmosphere was indeed growing warmer and that there was "clear evidence of human influences on the climate system". What? No rewrite?? The enemies of the Earth in the White House took some other hits too. We had a gloat-in.



"They had small brains" by Dana Lyons brought us Back to the Pleistocene! Hang on to your...um..bear skin? This was the retro part of the show.



Then it was on to our Bus Stop Billboard:
