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.

Did Carrier Fleece Both Trump & America?

Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.

That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
Van Jones, cofounder of RebuildTheDream.com and author of The Green Collar Economy
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
