LEGALIZING HEMP & MARIJUANA with Don Wirschafter and Todd McCormack at today's 3pm eastern SOLARTOPIA GREEN POWER & WELLNESS SHOW. HarveyW is joined by his long-time friend Don, one of the great pioneers of the legalize hemp and marijuana industry, and expert Todd McCormack to discuss the end of cannabis prohibition and the upcoming Obama decision as to continue pushig against the river.
DR. KING WOULD HAVE FOUGHT FRACKING….and much more about his legacy of non-violent activism for peace, social justice and survival. Stefanie Spear, editor/publisher of the EcoWatch website and Dr. Bob Fitrakis of Freepress.org join HarveyW to commemorate Martin Luther King and the 2d inauguration of Barack Obama, whose environmental legacy is very much up for grabs, especially in the era of corporate personhood and Citizens United, whose third anniversary we mourn. This far-reaching, free-wheeling discussion of the deep-rooted connection between the "triplets" of racism, militarism and social injustice makes the indelible link to our modern struggle to save this planet and win Solartopia.
GREEN PARTY PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE JILL STEIN joins us in Solartopia with news of her excellent campaign and the future of the Green Party. We rip the Obama Administration's horrificly violent and hypocritical war on marijuana and its legal users in states like Montana---where at least one patient has died in a federal facility---and California. We also look at the demise of nuclear here and in Germany, where Solartopian technologies are fast becoming dominant. We also examine Obama's response to the fiscal cliff and the Great Fear that continues to mark the realities of corporate power. With callers from California and Massachusetts, this edition of the Solartopia Show is a must-listen for everyone interested in broad-ranging social change.
SHOWDOWN AT SAN ONOFRE and the rest of the rust bucket nukes comes to HarveyW's Green Power & Wellness Show. We explore the collapse of the decayed, decrepit atomic energy industry with Ace Hoffman, Barbara George and Eugene Coyle, leading California experts and activists on the decline and fall of two reactors at San Onofre that sit on earthquake faults in a tsunami zone. Deb Katz of the Citizens Awareness Network chimes in about the pending demise of Vermont Yankee, Fitzpatrick and other worthless, useless, ridiculously radioactive atomic reactors. If the Mayan calendar's end has warned us of a need to change the world as we knew it, shutting the nuke power industry is a great way to start. Hear all about it on this fantastic exploration of the post-nuclear Solartopian transition now accelerating to warp speed.
