Diane Tweten of Citizens for Portland Water on privatization of water & challenging EPA LT2 rule

For over 100 years Portlanders have safely been drinking water from the Bull Run reservoir where it is treated organically and naturally, but in applying a "one-size fits all" rule the Environmental Protection Agency has mandated that the City cover its reservoirs and build filtration plants. The average Portland water bill could double in the next five years if the city complies.  Host Stephanie Potter will talk with Diane Tweten of Citizens for Portland Water about how this issue relates to the trend of corporate influences toward privatization of water, and how Citizens for Portland Water is attempting to challenge the EPA ruling.

Culture Is Our Weapon

The guest is Damian Platt, co-author with Patrick Neate, of CULTURE IS OUR WEAPON: Making Music and Changing Lives in Rio De Janeiro.

Damian will talk about his work with the Rio-based NGO AfroReggae, a group who uses music and art to keep the children of Rio’s favelas out of the pervasive drug trade. AfroReggae was forged out of the 1993 police massacre of 21 people in one of the favelas. Founded by ex-drug traffickers, AfroReggae works to take young people out of the drug/gang culture and harness the ingenuity and creativity of their communities to provide positive alternatives for young people. It shows the side of Rio beyond the tans of Ipanema and the pageantry of Carnival - the Rio you won’t find in any tourist guidebook.

With the intention of restoring "the nation to natural optimum health," a nonprofit health organization Fresh Start, was recently founded here in Portland to provide free education to the public on natural health topics. "We believe that America's health crisis can be turned around, and we can do that through making the best information available to the people."

With host Stephanie Potter, join co-founders Robert Gordon, Jr., Fresh Start manager; Amy Rutherford-Close, Certified Personal Trainer/Sports Nutritionist; Michael Hunter Fitness Enthusiast/Patient Advocate, and find out what they're up to.

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher speaks with Timothy Noah, author of "The Great Divergence: America's Growing Inequality Crisis and What We Can Do about It."

For the past three decades, America has steadily become a nation of haves and have-nots. We have less equality of income than Venezuela, Kenya, or Yemen.

In "The Great Divergence", Timothy Noah explains not only how the Great Divergence has come about, but why it threatens American democracy—and most important, how we can begin to reverse it.

 

 

 

 

Klamath Basin Refuge - water conflicts and bird die-offs

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 04/30/2012

Hosted by Stephanie Potter

Most of the lakes and marshes of the Lower Klamath were drained for agriculture nearly 100 years ago, but the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge in Southern Oregon and Northern California is still the most important waterfowl habitat on the Pacific Flyway. However, last month 10,000 or more birds died there from overcrowding as a result of a water cut-off by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. This was the biggest die-off in a decade. The refuge is last in line for water, behind farmers and endangered fish, and as global warming heats up, scarce water supplies are likely to become even scarcer.

Tune in and join the discussion as a representative from the US Fish and Wildlife Service provides an initial overview, and then host Stephanie Potter is joined by Steve Pedery of Oregon Wild and Jim McCarthy of WaterWatch to talk about the issues and what needs to be done.

 
 
 

 

Klamath Wildlife Refuges -- for the birds?

program date: 
Mon, 04/30/2012

Most of the lakes and marshes of the Klamath Basin were "reclaimed" and drained for agriculture nearly 100 years ago--only 20% remain, but the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex on the Oregon/California border, is still the most important waterfowl habitat on the Pacific Flyway. However, last month over 10,000 birds died there from overcrowding as a result of a water cut-off by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. This was the biggest die-off in a decade. The refuges there are last in line for water, behind farmers and endangered fish, and as global warming heats up, scarce water supplies are likely to become even scarcer.  Matt Braun, spokesperson for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) provides an initial overview, and then host Stephanie Potter is joined by Steve Pedery of Oregon Wild and Jim  McCarthy  of WaterWatch.

(Unique among the more than 500 wildlife refuges in the National Wildlife Refuge System, the USFWS allows broad-scale commercial agriculture within the Tule Lake and Lower Klamath refuges that provides no benefit to wildlife. View interactive maps here to see how the Klamath Basin has been altered by development.)

CALIFORNIA 90420, a documentary on Oaksterdam University

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Fri, 04/27/2012

Host Jay Thiemeyer interviews filmmaker Dean Shull about his new documentary CALIFORNIA 90420 which  looks at Oaksterdam University, the nation's only college preparing students for work in the medical marijuana industry. The film shows at the Clinton Street Theater in Portland starting Friday, April 27th.

90420 focuses on the rapidly open and growing marijuana trade in the State of California. The film explores the burgeoning 'above ground' industry through the eyes of four, 20-something characters whose real lives are caught up in the changing green landscape.

The film follows faculty and students at California's Oaksterdam University, the nation's first college to prepare students for careers in the ever changing marijuana industry and the epicenter of legalization efforts in California. Recently federal agents from the DEA and IRS raided Oaksterdam University as well as the home of Oaksterdam University Founder, Richard Lee. Although medical marijuana is legal in California, it is still prohibited under federal law, leaving Oaksterdam in a precarious legal limbo.

CALIFORNIA 90420 is a New Coast Productions Film directed by Dean Shull (Waiting...) and produced and written by Dean Shull, Steve Roberts and Colin Goldman. The film features Dale Sky Jones and Oaksterdam co-founders Richard Lee and Jeff Jones.
