In recent years a wide range of voices has been promoting nuclear energy as the solution to climate change. While it’s true that the actual nuclear processes within reactors produce no carbon emissions, nuclear boosterism overlooks a number of serious issues with nuclear power. Probably the most critical one is the still-unsolved problem of where to store all the nuclear waste. For many years it looked like the permanent repository for all of our country’s nuclear waste was going to be Yucca Mountain, 90 miles north of Las Vegas.

Even as oil gushes into the Gulf of Mexico from a  deep water drilling accident, new drilling is being planned off Alaska's arctic coast this July. But neither ecological disasters, oil wars, nor tens of thousands of annual auto fatalities  have so far dampened our enthusiasm for the car.   Sociologist and author Michael Dawson explores the how this enthusiasm is rooted in a capitalist business model that's "intractably addicted to selling us cars in crazy-huge numbers, forever, no matter the ecological and social consequences," thus "the homicidal perpetuation of cars-first transportation." Speaking with host Stephanie Potter, Dawson discusses the need to take a clear-eyed look at the addiction to the U.S.

Theresa Mitchell with the "news you're not supposed to know:"  There's trouble in the pipeline.  New analysis of the BP gusher video shows that the Gulf of Mexico is being poisoned at the rate of four million gallons of sludge per day, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says that the crap will be circulating around Florida.  Meanwhile the Afghan War and the occupation of Iraq are going south fast, and the patches on the economy that supposedly stopped the progress of the new Great Depression are pulling apart.  To Washington planners, this can only mean one thing:  it's time to start a new war.  The War on Terror isn't doing the job of distracting people well enough, because

The reason that BP is trying 'containment' or 'top kill' is that they want to be able to profit from the thousands of feet of hole that they've already produced.  They know it has oil--we all do, now--so they want to "contain" it or plug it at the top ("top kill"), and that way they can save lots of money and still profit from the new "relief well."  The new well will use imaging seismic technology and directed slant drilling to access the (considerable) remainder of the old hole.  Get it?

KBOO HAIR RAISING ‘STOP THE OIL, SAVE THE GULF’ SPECIAL 

Thank you to everyone who participated in our hair raising special on Monday June 7th, from 8 am to 7 pm!  A special thanks to all the volunteers who helped with today’s program, with an extra special thank you to Jacob Anderson-Minshall for his hard work and dedication to making today’s program a reality.

Audio from the all-day on-air special program

And thanks to all of the hair stylists who volunteered their time to cut hair – Lisa Butti, formerly of Salon Bucci, Lyn Moelich, Heather and Tab from the Tribe Hair Salon, Brett from Beige Blond, and all the stylists from Bishops Barbershop who participated in today’s event. We had over eighty people get their hair cut in our backroom barber shop, and collected over 50 pounds of hair. This hair will be sent to the Meg Perry Center for Environmental Peace and Justice in New Orleans, where it will be turned into hair rugs to help soak up the oil.  Check the KBOO website in the next few days for recordings of today's programs.
