We’re joined in Solartopia by worldwide wind guru PAUL GIPE and carbon tax pioneer CHARLES KOMANOFF.

The godfather of community-based wind, Gipe’s groundbreaking new WIND POWER FOR THE REST OF US writes the bottom line on the future of a technology now powering more and more of the planet.  Cheap, safe, abundant, clean and quick to build, wind power already employs more than 100,000 Americans.  Despite hostility from Trump, the Kochs and King CONG (Coal, Oil, Nukes & Gas) wind energy as described by Gipe is one of the world’s great growth industries.

Meanwhile Komanoff continues his work as one of the nation’s great advocates of the carbon tax.  A legendary pioneer of the urban bicycle movement, Charlie’s brilliant overview of the world energy crisis is unique and powerful.

Don’t miss the dialogue with these two great green gurus.

PEACE, NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT & THE SOLARTOPIAN REVOLUTION are with us through Paul Martin of Peace-Action and solar activist Paul Kangas from California.

PAUL MARTIN carries us through the history of his organization, which began with the legendary SANE campaigns against nuclear weapons.  Paul explains that the $1 trillion “upgrade” Barack Obama laid out for our nuclear arsenal is in fact insane, and that we need to radically slash the number of atomic weapons in the world, as well as the money we spend on them.
PAUL KANGAS reports on the astounding progress of renewable energy based on his recent trips in Russia, China and Japan.  In particular we hear about the energiewende transition to 100% renewables in Germany and feed-in tariffs in California that are sparking a massive change-over to green power in the nation’s biggest state.

We’re then joined by the great investigative journalist KARL GROSSMAN to tell us about the SHUT-DOWN OF INDIAN POINT and other nuclear/Solartopian realities we can expect with The Donald.
