I was in Portland Oregon last week and, as we explored the city, we noticed several people talking to themselves. Full on conversation - not just quick comments. It got to the point that we joked about it - something in the water maybe.

Incidentally, LOVE Portland! Can't wait to go back!

I'm getting a repeat of the first hour, instead of the third hour--both on KTLK and KPOJ.

WendyBluEyez --

.....we are processing out loud -- a needed Shamanistic skill -- akin to Druidic Bardic canting -- calling forth the probable realities and the Invisible Allies. Decoding the Labyrinth. Listening to the Massive Heart and Mind. Processing it for the benefit of the Whole.

j.sea - thanks for the explanation! =)

I would LOVE to move to Portland! In fact, my husband and I have discussed the possibility of that within the next two years.

mathboy, we replayed the Richard Trumka interview, the rest of the hour was live.

Climate deniers are running out of excuses...

One-by-one, the excuses for failing to act on climate change are disappearing.

Earlier this month, China proved that it's possible to quickly and dramatically reduce carbon emissions. According to an analysis by Greenpeace, our planet's largest greenhouse gas emitter reduced coal use by about 8 percent in a single year.

From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
