A backward agenda: Using Solyandra failure to end support for clean energy

More Talk Radio
program date: 
Mon, 10/03/2011

Solyndra, a solar power company that got more than half a billion dollars in loan guarantees from a Department of Energy Recovery Act program, went bankrupt at the beginning of September. The reason why it happened and who’s to blame is still unclear, but that’s not the main issue taking place in the political field.

Opponents of clean energy who favor fossil fuels want the U.S. public to think that clean energy is weak, unreliable, marginal, and dependent on government subsidies. They have been trying to make that case for a long while. They are trying to use Solyndra as a symbol, something to use as a stand-in to discredit not just the DOE loan program, but all government support for clean energy.

A bug the size of a rice kernel is killing off more than 30 billion pine and spruce trees in North America. Historically bark beetles are not pests. A bark beetle can probably hear the distressed song of a drought stricken tree and for tens of millions of years they have been pruning or collapsing ailing, aging or drought stricken forests.

The fires this summer on the northface of Mt. Hood struck a dark chord for many of us who know and love the trails, basins and ridges of this rugged and least-accessible face of the mountain. Yet while we may feel great sadness imagining our favorite places scorched and blackened by the fires, it's important to remember the vital role that fire plays in regenerating the woods. After the fire the forest comes back, but it takes time. On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with forest ecologist Dominick DellaSalla about the vital role that fire plays in the cycle of life and death in a forest.
