Hi Thom, love the show!!

I was just wondering if there are any new studies about global warming are available. I was very disappointed when Obama didn't go to the climate change summit in Durban. It was yet another example of a politician dropping the ball while the corporate media looks the other way. I still can't believe how many Americans, my own friends and neighbors, many of whom consider themselves environmentalists, had never even heard of the Durban conference. Thanks for covering the news that falls through the cracks!!

Hi Thom,

If you have time, can you discuss the coal transport issue and help us frame this debate in a way that is fair to pro-coal workers who are looking at very high unemployment rates and environmentalists who fear the coal dust. In reality, our Port of Longview and our mills are chock full of toxins and these toxins are transported daily through our rail system. I am trying to figure out how to understand all of the pieces in this argument. Our community needs work badly and Millenium is cleaning up a very toxic site, the former home of Reynold's Aluminum. What are we to do? Please help:-)

Thank you for your wisdom!

I am a pro-worker green girl who hasn't owned a car since 1997. Our community is suffering from lack of work so this terminal looks appealing to many workers. We have to frame this debate in a way that is fair to unemployed workers, and I don't know how to do that.

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
