The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 02/19/13

Air date: 
Tue, 02/19/2013 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe discuss the Keystone XL pipeline project

 Tens of thousands of protesters converged on the National Mall in Washington, DC on Sunday to demand action on climate change. Among their principal targets: the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, which would carry oil from the Alberta Tar Sands in Canada to U.S. ports on the Gulf of Mexico.

The project is an environmental disaster waiting to happen. Aquifers, delicate ecosystems, and entire communities would be devastated in the event of a major leak. Small wonder, then, that a Senate majority recently voted in favor of the project, and that the President is at best ambivalent.

Abe and Joe look at the latest battleground between profit and preservation.

This episode, we're looking at the dirty underbelly of cycling: bike theft.

We'll be joined by Sgt Michael Frome from the Portland Police Bureau and Ian Stude, PSU's transportation options manager and bike parking expert. He says bikes were only recently surpassed as the University's most-stolen personal item. By laptops.

Later, Nick Watkin, General Manager of Kryptonite locks, and Daryl Slater, Kryptonite's Marketing Manager, will join us by phone from Boston to talk about the market trends they observe, what it reveals about bike theft, and how they educate customers (and retailers) about bike security.

Just back away from the coal, oil and gas.

After decades of inaction, we are now rapidly losing the window in which we can act to prevent catastrophic climate change. Yet with all the continued global fossil fuel development underway, it would appear that the involved governments and private companies couldn't care less.  How about you?

Greenpeace has recently compiled a report detailing 14 of the world's biggest coal, methane, and oil projects and how their development would seem to doom any chance of preventing a climate catastrophe.
