About the show
Kevin and Margaret begin the show with brief news reports on the O13 Global Day of Noise, the Financial Transactions Tax in the EU, Steve Horn's (http://www.desmogblog.com/) excellent investigative reports on the effects of oil and gas industry funding on SUNY Buffalo and the Susan G. Komen foundation's abilities to be objective. Our first guest, Josh Eidelson, writes regularly at Salon.com and InThese Times (http://inthesetimes.org/) and has been covering the growing strikes and protests by Wal-Mart employees and businesses that serve Wal-Mart. Our second guest, Tom Weis, is President of Climate Crisis Solutions (http://www.climatecrisissolutions.com/). Tom tells us about the Keystone XL Pipeline, the truth about the effect it will have on climate change (James Hansen calls it "Game Over"), our drinking water and jobs. A broad coalition of activists is bravely trying to stop the pipeline from being constructed. Visit RideforRenewables.com, TarSandsBlockade.org and October2011.org.
