Thom, I was just listening to your story about the gathering of elders in which you participated, and your conversation with Frank. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR MORE ABOUT THIS GATHERING and your experiences there. Please consider discussing it on air or posting more information here at the blog.

We have so much to learn from indigenous people about how to leave properly with the earth.

A big echo for sandcat's comment! On other issues, I was thinking rooftop solar power would have two salutary effects. First, free fuel (sunlight) would free up $ to spend on other economic benefits and second, deleterious climate effects (global warming and health problems due to pollutants) would be reduced freeing up $ for other needs. Win-win except for the extractive industries.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
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 Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
