The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 07/13/10

Air date: 
Tue, 07/13/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Who needs facts when you've got opinions?

Facts? Don't bother me with the facts. An article from the Boston Globe discusses the ramifications of a University of Michigan study which shows that reality has very little bearing on one's deeply held opinions, whether right or wrong. In fact (so to speak), the study suggests a perverse tendency to cling even more tightly to one's beliefs whenever reality proves to be inconvenient.

With Joe on vacation, Abe probes the murky waters where faith and fact overlap.

Today's show ran the gamut from water conservation to oily devastation to the double-edge of postmodern autonomy, with a final romp by our Movie Moles through the Ozarks. Our host, Clayton Morgareidge, selected some bluegrass music to accent the plight of those who just want some "Cool Water," and of those in "Moneyland."

Below are links to the individual segments [in progress], and below those the whole show including transitions.

1. Bill Resnick interviews James Workman about water democratization and what we can learn from African Bushmen.

In April a report was released showing that more than 9 million young adults, or 27 percent of all Americans ages 17 to 24, are too overweight to join the military and that national security in the year 2030 is "absolutely dependent" on reversing child obesity rates. According to the authors of the report we need to eliminate junk food and high-calorie beverages from schools, put more money into creating school lunch programs that serve real food to children. http://tinyurl.com/y7akr8m

Right now there are more unanswered questions than answers about what is happening with the hemorrhaging oil gusher at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico and what will be its short and long term environmental, health and economic consequences. Portland environmental writer Lizzie Grossman returns from a trip to Gulf of Mexico to report on what she saw, the people she met and her first-hand impressions on the immensity of disaster created by the BP Oil hemorrhage on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico. We talk about the destruction that is already evident from this disaster and the even more disquieting concerns about what is yet to unfold.
