ECOSHOCK —Time of the Techno-Fix
As ecology crashes, tech dreamers cash in…Michael Huesemann, co-author of “Techno-Fix: Why Technology Won’t Save Us or the Environment” interviewed by The Extraenvironmentalist. Then “Alternative Radio” founder David Barsamian recorded in Vancouver: what should we do?
Weather modification is just part of the scramble to find tech fixes to a crashing environment. Comment on Las Vegas conference trying to bring rain to drought-striken S.W. U.S. – local geoengineering as climate change progresses.
Introductory rant by Alex Smith on his trip to the Western U.S. People know the climate has changed, but we are not changing our fossil-powered lives. Will we return to the vast bands of deserts around the globe, as seen 200 million years ago?
Can technology save us? Scientist and researcher Michael Huesemann says “No”, in his authoritative book “Techno-Fix”. We hear key excepts from a two hour podcast from Seth Mozerkatz and Justin Ritchie, hosts of “The ExtraEnvironmentalist”.
While I offer listeners a free download of David Barsamian’s wide-ranging speech on geo-politics, we hear his answer to my question: if the West (and the American Empire) are falling, what should we do in the meantime?
Barsamian founded the weekly “Alternative Radio” show, has published many books of interviews of counter-culture heros, including two new ones with Noam Chomsky and Richard Wolfe. Alternative Radio is heard right here on No Lies Radio every Wednesday at 10am Pacific, 1pm Eastern, 1800 GMT. Visit Radio Ecoshock here.
