The Enviro Blowin' in the Wind Show

Jean’s away in Portugal hugging trees and who knows what all. We opened the show with a few short riffs on news of the planet. In the Revenge of the Critters Dept. this week: Bug smasher blows himself up!

Elenor Tillinghast of Green Berkshires rejoined us along with Tina Clarke of Clean Water Action for our continuing discussion of industrial windpower. This civilized debate took up most of the show. Let us reason together. We set the scene with Para Noise's "Private Power".

"Spit on the ground", by the Commonwealth's own Reagan Babies will brought us up to the Bus Stop Billboard:

We went out with Gina Citoli's "Breakdown of imagination". D.O. wants to dedicate that one to the good citizens of Leverett who voted to loosen septic regulations. That stinks!

Speaking of D.O., he still wants to bend your ear some more about Cape Wind: the right project in the wrong place. Maybe next time. For now you'll have to be satisfied with the anti-cape wind screeds he's plastered below and in thr links.

Next week: The BIG VFR fund drive. Time to pay the piper folks. You won't find this stuff on National Public Relations....errr..Radio.
