While I voted yes, I am going on instinct here, and possibly a hope and prayer.

Massive fresh water aquifers being bought up (all over the globe), oil catastrophes (as Gulf of Mexico) poisoning our Oceans/food supply, power crazed sociopaths intentionally run worlds economic system into ground ( to impoverish all but 1%). Fukushima looming, fracking poisoning, purchasing of bio-organisms and Democracy, gmo manipulation of food supply, seed banks buried deep into earth, drug induced zombie psychology controlling % of population, capitalism raping very essence of humanity, police state, corp., gov., & citizen centrepol, bunkers 10+ stories deep into earth, social progs of food, healthcare and housing (sustaining human life) being systematically demolished, ...there is intent here, clearly all this (and more) does not propagate "Life, Liberty or the Pursuit of Happiness" ... to put it mildly.

If it is not Fukushima Reactor 4 alone that triggers a global catastrophe, obviously there are a myriad of catastrophic elements breaking, just as the dawn.

This is not the 60's... "We're not in Kansas anymore"

oh, you know, now that we are no longer a democracy…I guess an initially defective nuclear reactor going hyper ballistic and ejecting a radio-active cloud into the atmosphere that rivals an asteroid impact only to leave a crater where southern Japan and a sizeable chunk of the ocean used to be…is just something we are going to have to get used to. Long live GE.

Should public radio program in the public interest?

NPR is supposed to be our national public radio, but they're barely covering climate issues that are in the public's interest.

Only one month ago, a national New York Times/CBS News poll found that half of all Americans think that global warming is already having a serious impact. Sixty percent of those surveyed even said that protecting our environment should be a priority “even at the risk of curbing economic growth.”

From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
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.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
