The Enviro Towering Thoughts Show

This time we really meant it: JEAN'S BACK!! Our own Sam Lovejoy joined us to talk about direct action and other such towering concepts. We opened the lines for that one, but no one called in except Francis Crowe, are one loyal listener (gee, maybe we should just do the show at her house). But first it was on to…. Revenge of the Critters! The mouse returns from the grave…sort of…and bites back.

In the news: Earth First! confronts ol' King Coal. Shut it down! Towers indeed! How about a whole slew of wind towers in Nantucket Sound? We don’t think so! Also, U.S. Emits Half of Car-Caused Greenhouse Gas, Study Says (checkout for this and other climate crisis info); Then it was time for some traditional Bush bashing for THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER: “Bush admin weakens water-pollution rules after oil exec intervenes”. Big Oil greases the wheels of government again. Surprize! And more...

"Declaration of War" by Ethan Miller & Kate Boverman, from their album, "If all the land would rise" took us to our interview w/Sam. We had a lively conversation about direct action and the kind of chemistry needed to make such action effective. One of the actions we touched on was the upcoming Camp Democracy planned for DC by Cindy Sheehan, Code Pink, and our own Traprock Peace Center. We closed the interview with the Reagan Babies' "Resistance".
