WHAT HAPPENED IN PARIS?  The new climate accord is being widely hailed as an historic turning point.  Energy expert PAUL GIPE tells us why he thinks Paris will make a huge difference in RENEWABLE ENERGY and the transition to a green-powered Earth.

Paul currently works in Bakersfield, California, and describes a major victory just won in defeating a big carbon burner there.  We also track the history of Denmark's world-changing decision to go with wind power instead of nuclear, confirming the impact that Solartopian activism can have on our future.

Most of all, Paul describes the latest spectacular advances in wind and solar technologies, and how they can and will be owned by the communities that use them.

Paul's new WIND POWER FOR THE REST OF US will be published in 2016.  You can reach him at www.wind-works.org.  And if you want the real story on the future of green power, don't miss this show!

PLANNED PARENTHOOD UNDER ATTACK!!!!   We hear all about it from KATHY KNEER, head of California’s powerful Planned Parenthood organization, which runs more than 100 women’s health clinics throughout the nation’s largest state.  

Kathy dissects for us the vicious attack being waged on womens’ medical services by right-wing fanatics.  With control of both houses of Congress, the Republicans have finally passed anti-female legislation that goes far beyond abortion, denying women access to contraception and basic health care.

Kathy also tells us about the vile, cynical use of crudely distorted videos that undercut Planned Parenthood’s sterling reputation with the goal of ending this long-standing organization’s ability to provide basic services to women.  

SHEILA PARKS also joins us for a discussion of the impact of electronically stolen elections on the future of women’s health care.

If you are at all concerned about health services for our nation’s females, do not miss this show.

Solartopia is today invaded by the utter insanity of Ohio’s Public Utilities Commission, whose staff is recommending (this is not a typo) that ratepayers be gouged $4 billion to subsidize continued operation of the Davis-Besse nuke and several coal burners between the ages of 40 and 60 years old.

We hear from the incomparable atomic expert KEVIN KAMPS of BEYOND NUCLEAR who dissects the terrifying physical condition of the Davis-Besse nuke, which is literally crumbling before our eyes, And from SHANNON FISK of EARTHJUSTICE which is representing the SIERRA CLUB in litigation against this insane mega-robbery.

Suffice it to say the level of sheer cynicism comprised in this proposed bail-out defies description.

We then hear from world-renowned CARBON TAX advocate Charles Komanoff, who explains how a levy on the burning of fossil fuels can help us right the CLIMATE CHAOS destroying our ability to survive on this Earth.

If you intend to survive on this planet, this is an action-packed, fact filled reality show you can’t afford to miss.
