July 1 - Rob Larson - Fossil Fuelishness

rob Larson

Historian Barbara Tuchman once wrote the, "rejection of reason is the prime characteristic of folly." The lack of urgency in addressing the eco-crisis is an example of that. Heat waves in India, floods in Texas, drought in California, melting polar ice caps, rising CO2 levels in the atmosphere and so much more, are still presented as unconnected dots. Climate summits come and go resulting in little more than lofty announcements. With an abundance of solar and wind energy at our fingertips it's stunning and reckless that fossil fuelishness continues. As a sign said in Seattle protesting a huge Shell rig heading for drilling in the Artic, "Good Planets are Hard to Find.”

Rob Larson teaches economics at Tacoma Community College. He is the author of Bleakonomics. His articles appear in Dollars and Sense.

    Lawmakers Begin Special Session on Healthcare

    State lawmakers have begun meeting in a special legislative session to look for more than a billion dollars to fund health care programs, including funding for home care for aged, blind and disabled Californians. They’re looking at options including a new version of the current tax on managed care health providers, as well as other possible taxes on tobacco, alcohol and sugar-sweetened beverages. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.

    California's Oil Trains and Environmental Racism

    As the nation finds itself increasingly embroiled in much-needed conversations about racial injustice, one more story is gaining traction - that of the intense environmental injustice that communities of color face across the country. A study by Bay Area public interest groups has just been published detailing the risks that trains transporting crude oil disproportionately impose on minority communities in California. Pacifica's Liam McLaughlin reports.

    Mission Moratorium: Scrable to the Ballot

    Activists in San Francisco's Mission District say new building developments are driving out low to mid-income residents. They're scrambling to gather enough signatures to put a moratorium on market rate development on the November ballot. Lucy Kang filed this report from San Francisco.

    Livestock Antibiotics Bill Clears Ag Committee

    An Assembly committee has approved a measure to limit the use of antibiotics for livestock. The measure by democratic senator Jerry Hill aims at reducing the over-use of antibiotics that could lead to an increase in antibiotic resistant bacteria that pose a public health risk. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.

    City Council Postpone Voting on New Regulations For Berkeley’s Homeless

    A lengthy agenda and a lengthy meeting of the Berkeley City Council last night - there was the budget and a pending deal with the city's unionized workers. And then there were four proposed ordinances on the behavior of homeless people from councilwoman Linda Maio who says the status quo is no longer acceptable and points to a growing encampment on Shattuck and Telegraph Avenues. Opponents of her measures complained that the actual language of her proposals was not available until late last month and a last minute amendment distributed last night undermined the democratic process. Maio's supporters suggested that the opponents were filibustering the meeting to drive it into the early morning hours and scuttle the legislation. Pacifica's Saadia Malik reports.
