Theresa Mitchell with the "news you're not supposed to know."  U.S. experiencing record budget deficits, pressures to increase on middle class?  And consider this: 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.

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.
