Abe and Joe discuss the not inconsiderable accomplishments of the Obama administration.

program date: 
Tue, 01/04/2011

Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

It's no secret that for progressives, the Obama administration has been a mixed bag. A number of landmark accomplishments seem diminished in light of what they might have been, had the President and his Congressional majority had the backbone to challenge the prerogatives of the wealthy.

Joe, back from vacation, joins Abe to discuss the accomplishments of the Obama administration thus far -- and suggest how the President might chart a bolder tack in the future.

The good news that abundant new natural gas deposits in the United States are driving down the once soaring cost of natural gas has a disturbing underbelly. Hydraulic fracturing, the unconventional method used to extract this gas is creating nightmares for people who live close to the drill sites. In extreme cases wells are being poisoned and water that comes out of the faucets in these homes can be set on fire.

The Cancun Climate Talks still have not produced an international climate treaty. But there are many effective initiatives we can take to reduce global greenhouse emissions that don't require international treaties. On this episode of Locus Focus we hear an encore presentation of HEAVY WEATHER, a radio documentary by Barbara Bernstein, that explores the connections between increasing extreme weather and our changing climate and landscapes. It presents solutions that are community driven, based on decisions we make to change the ways we live and travel. Changes that actually can improve our quality of life.
