Greetings Earthlings. We’ve been focusing on the community's health here lately with regard to the proposed expansion of the Northampton dump over the Barnes Aquifer and tonight we’ll be hearing from author/activist, Jeff Conant whose recent book "A Community Guide to Environmental Health" seems right up our alley. As always we’ll be checking in on Darth Cheney, the boy emperor, John McSame and Sarah Barracuda (all prime suspects in an organized criminal enterprise disguised as a political party). We’ll checkout some news on the Enviro Show Echo Chamber and have the Quote of the Week, but first it’s time for...Revenge of the Critters! Deer attacks hunter and lawn chair!
Glen? Is it safe to come out yet? Will we ever be rid of the Bush regime? What if John McSame & Caribou Barbie steal the election? Will the Dark Lord continue his rein? We posted the candidates enviro programs on the Indymedia Climate site. Suffice it to say, the McSame/Palin plan is looking....how shall we say? Malnourished? Are we surprised that Grampy McSame (pssst, he’s crazy) failed to mention the climate crisis during his acceptance speech at the RNC? They did however have a group chant: "drill baby, drill!" (is this a Hollywood movie we're in??). We can’t make this stuff up! Once again we find ourselves quoting Thomas Friedman (sorry) who hits the nail on the head regarding McSame: "John McCain has completed his makeover from the greenest Republican to run for president to just another representative of big oil". (Thomas must’ve been listening to our show!) ALSO, that’s the Bush regime’s Minerals Management Service that was caught with their pants down recently. We thought the Repugnicans were God-fearing folk! Drugs? Sex? Graft and corruption? We are shocked, shocked we say!
"The American War" by Simone White takes us to The Enviro Show Quote of the Week which comes from former president Dwight Eisenhower. This is in recognition of Hurricane Ike and the warmongering comments of the Repugnican Vice Presidential candidate with regard to Russia. We'll hear it in Ike's own words.
In The Enviro Show Echo Chamber we checkout Climate Indymedia for a report on the Biotechnology Industry designing nightmare biofuels. AND, speaking of nightmares, checkout this bone-chilling video for our Enviro Show Blog Bonus. And a SPECIAL Blog ACTION Bonus for you is here. FINALLY, this from the New York Times: Dems cave on offshore drilling ban. (groan) And speaking of offshore, the HIGHLY endangered North Atlantic Right Whale needs your HELP!.
