To learn the latest about the quest for life beyond Earth, Dave DeAngelis interviews Washington Post science writer Marc Kaufman. Marc is the author of “First Contact,” where he describes compelling new evidence such that suggests life beyond Earth is not only possible, but highly probable.

What you don't know can't hurt the Oregonian; We'll look at the paper's new online partnership

program date: 
Tue, 05/31/2011

Like newspapers everywhere, the Oregonian is struggling to find a place in the new world of digital media. Its new online Oregon News Network pairs it with a set of independent partners to generate locally-based reporting -- including the Cascade Policy Institute, a libertarian think tank. The CPI has championed, among other things, privatizing public education and Social Security, as well as abolishing the minimum wage in favor of a new (and lower) "training wage."

Abe and Joe discuss the relative merits of the Oregonian's new online model, and whether it's a good idea for it to use radical "news" outlets like CPI.

Helen Caldicott - Hiroshima to Fukushima

Helen Caldicott  - Hiroshima to Fukushima (lecture)

The disaster at Fukushima has thrust the dangers of nuclear power back in people’s consciousness. The idea of an industry renaissance had been carefully orchestrated by corporations that stand to make tons of money. Politicians, ever mindful of who funds their campaigns, have gone along. It was hailed as a clean and safe solution to addressing climate change and energy issues.

An irony of the still unfolding tragedy is that it occurred in Japan, the only country to be attacked by nuclear weapons. The fallout from the fallout has spread around the world. Germany is planning to phase out nuclear power.
