Radio Ecoshock is a brilliant weekly one-hour roundup of the big environmental and social issues of our time. Alex Smith collects the best podcasts, conference recordings and original interview from a refreshing diversity of leading experts and authorities.
Many great ideas and fascinating commentary that you won’t hear anywhere else:
* “the business model of the auto industry is broken” – Dr. Peter Morici, Professor of International Business at the University of Maryland
* coal-fired power plants are dumping thousands of tonnes radioactive waste such as thorium and uranium into the air and on the land
* London-based Gwynne Dyer columnist, author, military historian on extreme climate change and resulting wars
* Dec 8 show — includes shameless but hilarious, twisted XMAS songs from the coal industry: “Ho Ho Ho Clean Coal for the Holidays” and “Frosty the Coal Man”.
Lots of supplemental information on the RE blog – Ecoshock Program Notes.
