Solartopian WIND POWER in Indian Country, Cape Cod and Congress blows through this GREEN POWER AND WELLNESS SHOW. Harvey's joined by Bob Gough of the Native American wind industry where available turbines could generate as much US electricity as all our nuclear reactors. Christina Rawley and Ron Zweig of Falmouth, Massachusetts, tell us about Cape Wind and a shifting public view that supports the spread of wind power despite some well-funded opposition. And Elliot Negin of the Union of Concerned Scientists brings his Huffington Post article about the federal Production Tax Credit whose defeat could cost nearly 40,000 Americans their jobs.
THE NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION & ACCELERATING SOLAR POWER are center stage at Harvey Wasserman's Green Power & Wellness Show with RYAN GRIM of Huffington Post and Ken Silverstein of EnergyBiz and Forbes Magazine. Ryan broke the story of the resignation of NRC Chair Gregory Jazcko this week and attended the infamous hearing in which Jazcko's fellow commissioners accused him of being mean to women. Ken Silverstein writes a daily story on energy and talks to us about renewables, Google and the booming green energy industry. Take a listen!
With guests Ryan Grim and Ken Silverstein.
Guerrilla satirist and legendary YIPPIE! co-founder Paul Krassner joins the GREEN POWER & WELLNESS SHOW today from sunny California. Paul brings his perfectly unique perspectives on the life and great times of a life-long activist/humorist. Paul is the illegitimate father of THE REALIST, a generation's first truly underground attack on the constipated culture of the Eisenhower 1950s. Later he named the Youth International Party that would rock the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention. Now in sunny California, Paul brings with him a half-century of great stories and Earth-changing history, including the wit and wisdom of Mitt Romney (a VERY brief segment of the show).
THE DECLINE AND FALL OF NUCLEAR ENERGY is on Harvey Wasserman's Green Power & Wellness Show on www.progressiveradionetwork.com Tuesday, May 8, 2-3pm EST. We join the expert Ace Hoffman to talk about California's San Onofre nuclear reactors, currently shut, and the amazing Solartopian victories in Japan, where all reactors are now shut, and France, which has elected a new president many hope will end atomic energy altogether. Listen in, and call us at 888-874-4888.
PROGRESSIVE VEGANISM AND FASTING (Part 2) fill this Green Power & Wellness Show, as Dr. Alan Goldhamer and Dr. Nathan Gershfeld again join us from True North Health in Santa Rosa, California, to discuss the joys of diet and health. Harvey has finished his 16-day water fast and is now happily detoxing and re-feeding, having gained back about 8 of the 25 pounds he lost. Drs. Goldhamer and Gershfeld will detail why fasting can save your health and why a vegan diet can save a small planet being destroyed by industrial meat, overfishing and the lethal triad of sugar, oils and salt.
