program date: 
Mon, 06/08/2015
Some writers on climate change use the idea of the "Anthropocene" to blame humanity in general for the degradation caused by burning fossil fuels. Andrea Malm critiques this concept in this article from Jacobin, read here in abridged form by Clayton Morgareidge. Capitalists, not humanity, are to blame.

Bill Resnick and Tyler MacGuiness of the Oregon Center for Public Policy explore Child poverty in Oregon. Twenty-five percent of Oregon kids live in destitution, 50% are in ordinary poverty, and 75% of those are in working families.

Today’s guest is William Binney.    Binney is an NSA whistleblower. He said today: "While this is a step in the right direction, it doesn't go nearly far enough in ending bulk acquisition of data. It doesn't stop activity under [executive order] 12333, that does acquisition right off the fibers -- it's an automatic flow to the NSA. It's both content and meta data." Edward Snowden has said: "Without Bill Binney, there would be no Edward Snowden," See: "The executive order that led to mass spying, as told by NSA alumni."
