Short Description: 
Movie Moles: Her, revolutionary reforms, Chinese Environmentalism, Public Utilities in Portland

Bill Resnick Hosts and we hear:
  • Bill interviews Richard Smith on China’s growing environmental activism, but it's being suppressed by the authoritarian state and the Communist Party’s drive for growth, which could destroy the planet’s life giving ecosystems.
  • Joe Clement talks with economic commentator, Jesse Myerson, shot into the limelight recently by an article he wrote for Rollingstone that advocated five radical reforms millenials should be fighting for: a job guarantee, a universal basic income, land value taxes, public banks and sovereign wealth funds for the public good.
  • Boulder, Colorado, voted to create a public electric utility in order to greatly reduce greenhouse gas pollution and global warming. A model for Portland?
  • Net neutrality and the struggle to stop corporate control and censorship of the Internet.
  • Movie Moles, Denise Morris and Frann Michel, review the new Spike Jonze film, Her, which follows the unfolding relationship between a man and his self-learning operating system, with which he falls in love.
