Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff August 2nd, 2021

Welcome back to Gorilla Radio’s Home Edition, recorded August 2nd, 2021

And welcome too to the dog days of planet Earth. As the northern hemisphere swelters in record-setting fashion, perhaps its time we talked again about Global Warming and its inevitable consequences?

Or we can turn to a quick Olympics update of the latest in the Simone Biles saga… She whaaat!!! …And now, what were we talking about again?

Fact is, sea levels will rise as the last of the World’s ice melts. What that means for humanity is too terrible to contemplate, so most of us just don’t do it. But, one of the impending calamities missed even by those who plan for the coming crises is, what happens to our massive and still growing, mostly toxic waste dumps located at near sea-level?

Dave Lindorff is a longtime, Izzy Award-winning journalist, author, and documentary filmmaker. He’s also founder of the web news site, This Can’t Be Happening.net, where his latest piece, “Coastal Landfills Are No Match for Rising Seas” appears.

Today for the whole hour, Dave Lindorff and America not wavering but sinking…

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Jonathan Latham August 24, 2020

Welcome back to Gorilla Radio’s continuing efforts, NOT broadcast live from CFUV Radio in the basement of the Student Union Building at the University of Victoria, but emanating live-to-tape via Skype from our home-based … studios on this date, August 24th, 2020.

Nearly nine months into the most disruptive if not destructive pandemic known to history how is it we still do not definitively know where Covid-19 came from? After tens of thousands of television hours and millions of words printed, why must we still ask this most fundamental question?

Dr. Jonathan Latham holds a Masters degree in Crop Genetics, a PhD in Virology and is, along with Dr. Allison Wilson, co-author of a trilogy of articles seeking to both discover the origins of Covid-19 and forewarn the public of the dangers posed by the kind of research they posit is at the root of this and other modern pandemics.

Latham is too co-founder and Executive Director of the Bioscience Resource Project, Editor of Independent Science News, and Director of the Poison Papers project, publicizing documents of the chemical industry and its “regulators”. He’s published peer-reviewed scientific papers in disciplines as diverse as plant ecology, virology, genetics, and RNA biology, and his many science articles appear at: FAIR, Truthout, Counterpunch, and The Ecologist among other places.

Today, Jonathan Latham and proposing an origin for SARS-CoV-2 and the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Pablo Ouziel, Robert Hunziker, Janine Bandcroft October 26th, 2017

 

Right now, as night falls in Spain the future of the country is shrouded in uncertainty. The referendum on independence that began October, and deemed “illegal” by the federal government, has predictably proven divisive, with each of the main players involved, Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy, and Catalonia’s regional president, Carles Puigdemont showing little appetite for compromise. Rajoy promises to dissolve Catalonia’s parliament, and reschedule elections, while unilateral secession is Puigdemont’s only arrow in the quiver.

Dr. Pablo Ouziel is a Post-Doctoral fellow at UVic whose project in progress is, ‘Towards Democratic Responses to the Crisis of Democracy in Spain: Forms of Participatory and Representative Civic Engagement.’

Pablo Ouziel in the first half.

And; beyond the partisan barbs, it’s safe to say Donald Trump is no ecology defender. Surrounded already by climate change deniers and petroleum industry insiders in hiring Scott Pruitt as head of the EPA however, the former real estate tycoon and media phenomenon sent a particularly loud and clear message to businesses big and small: “Damn the enviros, full

speed ahead!”

Robert Hunziker is an environmental journalist whose climate clarion calls appear in numerous journals and multiple languages around the World and across the internet. He’s also appeared in a variety of electronic media to talk about global climate change, written extensively about the ongoing aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and penned numerous articles on the ever-quickening polar ice melt.

In his recent article, ‘Mr. Toxicity Zaps America‘ Hunziker reports Environmental Protection Agency head, Scott Pruitt “nixed his own agency’s proposal of 2015 to ban the toxic chemical chlorpyrifos, an insecticide that attacks the nervous system of pesky insects, as well as pesky and non-pesky people…”

Robert Hunziker and the EPA’s number one “toxics defender” in the second half.

And; Victoria-based activist and CFUV Radio broadcaster at-large, Janine Bandcroft will bring us the Left Coast Events bulletin at the bottom of the hour. But first, Pablo Ouziel, perched atop the peak of Spain’s tipping point.
