New weekly ThisCantBeHappening! radio show Climate change: Washington and the Oil Companies Know but Won’t Act to Stop It


By dlindorff - Posted on 14 February 2014

ThisCantBeHappening! has a new radio program of the same name. TCBH founder Dave Lindotff  will be hosting the show every Wednesday at 5 pm Eastern Time on theProgressive Radio Network.

The first “trial run” program, on the US Social Security system and the effort by the financial industry to destroy it, featured an interview with Theresa Ghilarducci, whom the financial industry has dubbed "the most dangerous woman in America," because of her incisive exposés of their campaign of distortion about Social Security and about the 401(k) plans that they would like us to all have to rely on. That program is not yet available as a podcast, but will be eventually.

Meanwhile, the official first show, which aired this past Wednesday, is available atThisCantBeHappening! on PRN. Check it out. The show is on climate change, and reveals how the government and the energy industry both know climate change is happening, and that it's happening faster than anyone imagined. I talk about how despite their knowing this, Washington--both Obama and Congress, Democrats and Republicans alike -- are doing nothing to prevent it. Even worse, the oil industry is both gearing up to profit from a completely ice-free Arctic Ocean by the summer of 2012 by starting ocean drilling in that former ice-bound region, and at the same time preparing a major propaganda and lobbying campaign to prevent passage of any laws or regulations to limit carbon emissions in the US.  .
