IN REVERSE CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER… starting with our most recent show

2019 SEASON

Uninhabitable Earth – David Wallace-Wells February 27, 2019 – New York magazine journalist David Wallace-Wells warns of shrinking livable space as the world warms. It is time to rethink everything.

Out Of The Smog, Into The Sea February 20, 2019 – Melting glaciers lead to a hotter world. Episodes of glaciers and ice falling into the sea make our weather one year very different from the next. New Zealand ice-expert Nicholas Golledge joins us. But first, from California Dr. Robert Allen reveals pollution has hidden up to half a degree C. of warming. I think the two degree supposed “safe” line is already in the rear-view mirror. This is Radio Ecoshock. Prepare to live in a very different world.

The End of Ice February 13, 2019 – Greenland, Antarctica, South America, the Himalayas – it’s all going, the ice is leaving the Earth. This is a whirl-wind roundup of new science with Ottawa climate expert Paul Beckwith. We talk pollution (is it saving us?), vanishing glaciers, Tasmanian dry lightening fires, James Hansen’s latest, tech to draw down carbon dioxide, and why this scientist made 500 videos to educate and warn the public via YouTube. Catch up quick, with this week’s Radio Ecoshock. Download or listen to this Radio Ecoshock show in CD Quality (57 MB) or Lo-Fi (14 MB)

Climate Food Shock February 6, 2019 – Survival food expert Jonathan Richards on why we all need food insurance during the climate shift. With his dark blog “Survival Acres”, Richards explores the junction between the ultimate threat of global warming and our way-too-fragile food system. In this rare interview, myths, scams and mistakes are revealed. Why we struggle to survive despite signs of doom.

Big Trouble at the Poles January 30, 2019 – There is big trouble at both Poles. Veteran Antarctic scientist Richard Levy tells about the double threat driving Antarctic ice into the sea – to flood coastlines around the world. From Korea, scientist Malte Stuecker: why the Arctic is warming faster than the rest of the world, disrupting weather over the Northern Hemisphere. But first “Why We Won’t Quit the Climate Fight” by well-known American writers and activists, Kathleen Dean Moore, Oregon State University, and SueEllen Campbell from Colorado State University.

Global Heat Alert? January 23, 2019 – While Washington spins, here is the real alert. We may be in a rapid shift of warming on Earth. Interviews with top ice scientist Eric Rignot on Antarctic ice rush; Yangyang Xu – fast heat from air cleanup; and Julio Herrera Estrada on super drought science.

Warming Faster Than We Think January 16, 2019 – Professor David Victor delivers stiff warning from Nature: “Global warming will happen faster than we think”. Then we talk with Mike Davis, author of “Ecology of Fear” and “Planet of Slums”. In 1990, Davis explained why California would burn. We get his reaction to being too right.

Halting Mass Suicide by Coal January 9, 2019 – The venerable Noam Chomsky on our climate crisis and Nicholas Rees on the startling impacts of air pollution on babies and toddler brain development. But first, we must prevent mass climate suicide by coal, with famous German environmentalist Heffa Schuecking. Download or listen to this Radio Ecoshock show in CD Quality (57 MB) or Lo-Fi (14 MB)

Rough Seas in 2019 January 3, 2019 – The grand old man of coastal science Dr. Orrin Pilkey warns: start withdrawing from the coast-line now, or wait for the coming panic. A couple of hundred million years ago a massive warming on Earth drove most species to extinction. From the University of Toronto, Dr. Ulrich Wortmann explains the terrible similarity to our current voyage to hot world, with no one in the wheelhouse. The struggle continues. This program opens with 15-year-old Greta Thunberg addressing António Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations on December 4th, at the COP24 international climate talks in Poland. As we enter most difficult times humanity has ever faced, most people are coasting, hoping the crash won’t come, believing the harsh reality is not real. That leaves us lots to talk about here on Radio Ecoshock. Thank you for tuning in. Download or listen to this Radio Ecoshock show in CD Quality (57 MB) or Lo-Fi (14 MB)
