The Return of The Climate of Crisis Enviro Show



Greetings Earthlings. It’s serious doom & gloom time once again on The Enviro show. Us tree-huggin’, dirt-worshippin’ WHMP green team rejects are all over the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) final report released last week. Thousands of international scientists state it is "unequivocal", climate change will bring "abrupt and irreversible changes." What they don't say is that it's time to pull the plug on industrial civilization! We’ll gnash our teeth and moan over that later, as well as blame the Bush regime for just about everything. Also, Ted Glick calls in once again to update us on the Climate Emergency Fast as well as the December 8 International Day of Climate Action, but first it’s time for.........Revenge of the Critters! Wild boars invade Wurtzburg!



Melodeego's "1 Sky" takes us to the Enviro Show Echo Chamber. We found this from the AP: A Carbon Monitoring for Action database, or CARMA has been created. Check the database for a mega CO2 emitter near you! ALSO, we checkout this New York Times editorial on the IPCC final report. Glen will comb through that in search of any hidden gloom. That bit of liberal Bush bashing naturally takes us to...



Yes! There’s that sound again. It's the Darth Cheney dirge. Glen, what’s the countdown? OK, by now you Enviro Show enthusiasts may have noticed we make little or no distinction between Darth Cheney and the boy emperor, right? That’s because it’s a package deal! Buy one...err...sort of...get the other free! Sooo, speaking of the other,whose name shall not be spoken, check this out: U.S. power company linked to Bush is named as top polluter. Surprise! Opps! We mentioned his name.



"O, Exxon!" by That Guitar Man, David Ippolito will segway us into the Enviro Show Question of the Day. I know we've said that in the past, but this time we may actually play those clips.

Hello All,
I attempted to send an email, but I was unable to find a contact on your page. I wanted to let you know that on December 6th, Thursday evening at 6pm, Northamptonist will be hosting a free screening of the film, Contested Streets
[http://www.contestedstreets.com/home.html] at the Media Education Foundation's screening room on 60 Masonic Street. Anyone is free to attend.

The film explores the history and culture of New York City
streets from pre-automobile times to the present...Central to the
story is a comparison of New York to what is experienced in London,
Paris and Copenhagen. Interviews and footage shot in these cities
showcase how limiting automobile use in recent years has improved air quality, minimized noise pollution and enriched commercial,
recreational and community interaction. London's congestion pricing scheme, Paris' BRT (bus rapid transit) and Copenhagen's bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure are all examined in depth. You can view trailers for the film here:

For anyone interested in attending.

Best,
Paolo
