Daryl Davis, Klan-destine Relationships
Host Jimmy Tardy talks with Daryl Davis, world-class musician and owner of a closet full of Klan hoods and robes that were bequeathed to Daryl when their previous owners decided to renounce the Klan. Some of those previous owners include the former Imperial Wizard of the KKK (that's the national leader of the Klan for the rest of us...)
Daryl is an African-American man who grew up in Chicago and around the world as an, "emabssy brat" (his words). When he returned to the States, Daryl began to see racism all around him, and found himself the target of racist threats and violence. Instead of becoming afraid and turning away, Daryl decided to ask some Klan members, in person, "how can you hate me when you don't even know me?"

Living on the Ice Shelf, Humanity's Melt Down

program date: 
Sun, 06/29/2008

Host Per Fagereng interviews Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums and In Praise of Barbarians.

He discusses his latest article, "Living on the Ice Shelf, Humanity's Melt Down".

Davis says, "Our world, our old world that we have inhabited for the last 12,000 years, has
ended, even if no newspaper in North America or Europe has yet printed its
scientific obituary. This February, while cranes were hoisting cladding to the
141st floor of the Burj Dubai tower (which will soon be twice the height of the
Empire State Building), the Stratigraphy Commission of the Geological Society of
London was adding the newest and highest story to the geological column."

It turns out that the Holocene -- that recent inter-glacial warm interval
when we made ourselves at home on this planet -- is so all over. Welcome to the
Anthropocene, an Earth epoch defined by the emergence of urban-industrial
society as a geological force -- and get used to it.

In this post, Davis considers just how dire things are on our small,
warming planet (dire indeed!) and lays out in no uncertain terms just why those
who are hoping to rely on market mechanisms and carbon trading as a solution to
global warming are bound to be deeply disappointed.
