Louivere+Vanessa broadcast audioSome can hear it, or say they can, while others can’t, and think those that say hear the ultra-low frequency hum are just “hearing things.” Which is to say, they are not hearing anything, but are in fact nuts!

For nearly a decade, across the country, and across continents, persistent reports of an insistent “hum” have spawned theories and speculations befitting programs like the ‘The X-Files’ and Jesse Ventura’s ‘Conspiracy Theory,’ who have actually done programs inspired by the mystery; but a serious and scientific study of the noisome phenomenon is underway, and it’s base is close to home.

Dr. Glen MacPherson is founder and lead investigator for the World Hum Map and Database Project. He’s a high school teacher on the Sunshine Coast of BC, and lectured at UBC for 16 years training mathematics teachers. And yes, he’s a hum “hearer” too.

And; yesterday, the Federal government appointed a panel to explore Kinder Morgan’s pipeline proposal in BC. They might have saved the money, if a real social license is what they’re after; as Wilderness Committee reports, “In January, representatives from over 50 communities and First Nations told the National Energy Board (NEB) about local risks from the pipeline.” Now, to illustrate the point, they’ve created an interactive map to relay testimony to that fact from communities and First Nations living along the route to the fed’s NEB panel.

Peter McCartney is the Climate Campaigner for the Wilderness Committee. He’s working on advocating for a safe and clean climate economy, while mobilizing and demonstrating opposition to the burgeoning fossil fuel export projects on our coast.

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher emeritus and CFUV Broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with some of the good things going on on our streets, and beyond there too, in the coming week. But first, hearing the hum with Glen MacPherson.
