10/17/2017
More
The official subject matter of Sea Change Radio is environmental sustainability. This week, however, we are deviating from that to talk about a topic that we believe is inextricably linked to sustainability: stratification in education. We are talking with law professor, civil rights advocate, and educational diversity expert, Prof. John C. Brittain, about educational practices … Continue reading The Myth of Meritocracy: John Brittain on Legacy Preference → The post The Myth of Meritocracy:...

George Monbiot: Altruism For An Age Of Crisis

10/10/2017
More
When you think of the values emblematic of politics in the Occident, does the term “altruism” come to mind? Probably not lately. Our guest today on Sea Change Radio believes that a participatory culture with altruism at its core will be key to digging ourselves out of the mess that is our current political climate. … Continue reading George Monbiot: Altruism For An Age Of Crisis → The post George Monbiot: Altruism For An Age Of Crisis appeared first on Sea Change Radio.

While the earth probably won’t shake the next time you turn on your gas stovetop, keep in mind it comes at a cost. This week on Sea Change Radio, we re-visit a couple of discussions from our archives – first we hear from Ole Kaven a geophysicist with the US Geological Survey, about the connection … Continue reading Ole Kaven + Julie Greene → The post Ole Kaven + Julie Greene appeared first on Sea Change Radio.

9/19/2017
More
Plastic and prisons: two of America’s most toxic habits. Happily there are people working to create alternatives.

Aaron Huertas on the Purveyors of Disinformation

9/12/2017
More
Disinformation. It sometimes manifests in theatrical shows of ignorance, like Senior Republican Senator James Inhoffe bringing a snowball to the Senate floor as “evidence” that global warming is a hoax, or the persistent denial coming out of the ill-informed head of the current president that Harvey and Irma are unrelated to climate change. But where … Continue reading Aaron Huertas on the Purveyors of Disinformation → The post Aaron Huertas on the Purveyors of Disinformation appeared...

Prof. Daniel Kammen Spells Relief I-M-P-E-A-C-H

8/29/2017
More
Recently, in response to the 45th president’s shameful mishandling of the incidents in Charlottesville, Virgina, UC Berkeley Energy Professor Daniel Kammen resigned as a State Dept. Science Envoy. His resignation letter picked up national attention — in part because the first letter of each paragraph spelled out the word “IMPEACH.” This week on Sea Change … Continue reading Prof. Daniel Kammen Spells Relief I-M-P-E-A-C-H → The post Prof. Daniel Kammen Spells Relief I-M-P-E-A-C-H appeared...

Newfangled Retrofitting: BlocPower’s Donnel Baird

8/22/2017
More
Compared with new buildings, older buildings tend to eat up a lot more energy and produce and trap a lot more pollution. Whether it’s an old church, a broken-down community center, an under-funded school building, or public housing, too often these older buildings don’t get retrofitted due to fiscal constraints. This week on Sea Change … Continue reading Newfangled Retrofitting: BlocPower’s Donnel Baird → The post Newfangled Retrofitting: BlocPower’s Donnel Baird appeared first on Sea...

Between impending nuclear annihilation and the President of the United States seeming to endorse white supremacists, you may have missed the dismantling of the Environmental Protection Agency. This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak with Brendan O’Connor, a reporter for Gizmodo Media who has recently written an extensive piece chronicling the evangelical community and … Continue reading Brendan O’Connor on Unholy Alliances → The post Brendan O’Connor on Unholy Alliances appeared first on...

Michael Carolan: “No One Eats Alone”

8/8/2017
More
Food. It is as necessary as air and water. But the systems around food production and distribution have created a good deal of distance between ourselves and our food sources. Our guest today on Sea Change radio believes that food represents a wonderful, if somewhat untapped, opportunity for human connection. Colorado State University sociology professor … Continue reading Michael Carolan: “No One Eats Alone” → The post Michael Carolan: “No One Eats Alone” appeared first on Sea Change...

Orange County: Wastewater Reuse Leader

8/1/2017

What would you say to the idea of drinking a tall, cool glass of wastewater? On the face of it, it sounds, well, yucky. But it turns out you’ve probably been drinking it all along. There’s good technology now for extracting impurities and making even the dirtiest water potable. And some water districts around the … Continue reading Orange County: Wastewater Reuse Leader → The post Orange County: Wastewater Reuse Leader appeared first on Sea Change Radio.

Takin’ It To The Streets: Solar Roadways Update

7/25/2017
More
What if the roads we drove on, instead of being made of carbon-intensive petroleum sludge, were actually solar panels? And what if whenever electric vehicles drove on these solar roads, they were automatically re-charged? Sounds like a fiction, wishful thinking, a dream? Well, here at Sea Change Radio we like to celebrate the dreamers, and … Continue reading Takin’ It To The Streets: Solar Roadways Update → The post Takin’ It To The Streets: Solar Roadways Update appeared first on Sea...

In physics, electricity is power. Electricity can also be power, though, in the sense that it creates opportunity for the pursuit of social capital and positive outcomes. This week on Sea Change Radio, we highlight the efforts of two nonprofits that are working to bring clean, affordable energy to some of the most under-resourced people … Continue reading Anya Cherneff + Moira Hanes: Empowering A Generation → The post Anya Cherneff + Moira Hanes: Empowering A Generation appeared first on...

Trump on Energy: A Collection Of Contradictions

7/11/2017

Even the most astute followers of the news may have missed that the Trump Administration is touting a series of self-proclaimed focal areas. With compelling revelations of lying, collusion, and treason coming out almost daily, it’s understandable if absurd, toothless initiatives like “Energy Week,” or “Workforce Development Week” flew under your radar.

7/4/2017

Many people living in Pacific nations, like Vanuatu, Indonesia, and the Philippines, struggle to find adequate shelter, a challenge compounded by the elevated risk of structure-destroying cyclones. Meanwhile, miles off their coasts, plastic waste floats in the ocean, contaminating the marine food chain and threatening the world’s largest ecosystem.

“I guess the grass is itself a child, the produced babe of the vegetation.” Perhaps Walt Whitman had this week’s guests on Sea Change Radio in mind when he wrote those words, as we talk to two entrepreneurs who, in very different ways, are using nature’s bounty for innovative purposes. First, we speak to Hawaiian-based … Continue reading Barret Werk: Bamboo Bikes → The post Barret Werk: Bamboo Bikes appeared first on Sea Change Radio.

Ted Nordhaus: U.S. Leaves Paris

Are the cries for a complete transition to renewable energy from environmentalists like Bill McKibben actually undermining the work to combat climate change?

When a West Virginia University research team won a grant in 2012 to run some tests on diesel cars, they could not have imagined that their relatively small study would soon be bringing one of the largest, most storied auto makers in the world to its knees — something in the Farfegnugen just didn’t smell … Continue reading Fart-fegnugen: Jack Ewing on VW Emissions Scandal → The post Fart-fegnugen: Jack Ewing on VW Emissions Scandal appeared first on Sea Change Radio.

Many sports fans are familiar with this dilemma: do I want my team to put everything on the line to win now or would I prefer that my team take its time and try to methodically build a long term successful franchise?
