Susan Herman on “Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy"

Host Lisa Loving speaks with Susan Herman about her new book “Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy” which takes a hard look at the human and social costs of the War on Terror. A decade after 9/11, it is far from clear that the government's hastily adopted antiterrorist tactics--such as the Patriot Act--are keeping us safe, but it is increasingly clear that these emergency measures in fact have the potential to ravage our lives--and have already done just that to countless Americans.

The Media's Role in the Fate of the World

Host Lisa Loving speaks with Maria Armoudian about her new book "Kill the Messenger: The Media's Role in the Fate of the World," an in-depth examination of the media's power to help or harm.

What role do the media have in creating the conditions for atrocities in areas of conflict? Conversely, can the media be used to preserve democracy and safeguard the human rights of all citizens in a diverse society? How will the media affect the fate of the planet itself.

How does the media interact with psychological and cultural forces to impact perceptions, fears, peer-pressure, "groupthink," and the creation of heroes and villains?

Unfortunately, SB 742 and SB 845 failed to pass the Oregon Legislature, but, have no fear, these are being reworked for another try.  One entitles all Oregon High School Graduates to In-State Tuition Rates in ORegon Colleges, and the other helps New Immigrants obtain Drivers Licenses.

During the show, a listener recommended Dirt, The Movie

The importance of eating less meat came up, and a listener recommended Go Vegan Radio.

Another listener, Barry, claimed that Human Emissions are irrelevant because Volcanoes emit much, much, more Greenhouse Gas than Humans ever could, so changing OUR behavior would have little or no effect on climate.  He implied that  we'd have to plug up all the world's Volcanoes to get any significant reduction in Greenhouse Gases.

Well...  The Scientists at the USGS think otherwise...  "Human activities, responsible for a projected 35 billion metric tons (gigatons) of CO2 emissions in 2010 (Friedlingstein et al., 2010), release an amount of CO2 that dwarfs the annual CO2 emissions of all the world’s degassing subaerial and submarine volcanoes."
