Roundtable on NSA spying, Fukushima latest & the climate solution

Yesterday I joined Marcy Wheeler and Jay Ackroyd in a good discussion of three topics:

▪ NSA and the latest move by the State to increase its authority to surveil (thanks, Sen. Dianne Feinstein).

▪ The latest from Fukushima. This is not good. There’s a large and growing outcry and also an apparent media blackout. Why? We’ll discuss that (though the answer should be obvious, and it’s not the neoliberal one).

▪ Where are we at with climate solutions? There are a number of voices in that, starting with Obama. But a Paul Krugman review of a book by William Nordhaus mostly nails it. Yes, Virginia, there is an answer, and it’s not the neoliberal one.

NSA and Feinstein (oh my). DiFi is well on her way to making things worse.

Latest Fukushima nuclear disaster headlines for your post-Halloween fun. Plus this tale of corruption.

This guy mostly gets it about climate solutions, because this is the problem.

Enjoy, and thanks for your support for these important topics — and also for progressive media. We need you.
