Paul continues his exploration into the difficulties of organizing collectively in a pathological culture. After several shows devoted to the pamphlet "We Are All Very Anxious: Six Theses on Anxiety and Why It is Effectively Preventing Militancy, and One Possible Strategy for Overcoming It." we will go into the problem of finding shared perspective based in common experience in a society where we're caught between hyper-individualism and superficial mass culture.

What's wrong with anti-contraception conservatives?

program date: 
Wed, 02/01/2012

 Lisa Loving's guest is Robert Walker, Executive Vice President of the Population Institute.

If the current GOP presidential primary campaign is remembered for nothing else, it will be known for the meteoric rise of the "anti-contraception conservatives."

• Rick Santorum thinks states should have the power to ban family planning.

• Mitt Romney wants to eliminate funding for Title X, which helps to provides low-income women with access to family planning and reproductive health services.

• Rick Perry proudly trumpeted the fact that Texas had slashed state support for family planning clinics by two-thirds.

Taxpayers may instinctively applaud such cuts. But every dollar invested in helping women avoid unwanted pregnancies saves $4.02 in Medicaid expenditures that otherwise will be needed for pregnancy-related care.

Furthermore, many fail to realize that eliminating publicly-supported family planning services would actually increase the number of abortions in the U.S. Title X-supported centers alone helped avert 406,200 abortions in 2008 by providing high quality contraception.

"That it has gotten as far as it has in the past 18 months is unnerving," says Robert Walker of the Population Institute. "The escalating assaults on contraception are not only short-sighted financially,” but according to Walker, "they are really a war on women and their reproductive health and rights."

Robert Walker is the Executive Vice President of the Population Institute, which works to promote voluntary family planning and reproductive health services, and to increase awareness of the social, economic, and environmental consequences of rapid population growth.

Our guests today, Melissa Madensky, and Joy Meyers, from the Multnomah County Library talks about their new literacy programs at the North Portland Library. Tune in and call 503-231-8187 with your stories about the issue, plus find out how you can help increase literacy in your community. Wednesday at 8am on 90.7 FM, KBOO.

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.

Oregon Zoo Arctic Ambassador, Caroline Bass, talks about Climate Change

Categories:
program date: 
Wed, 12/28/2011

Host Lisa Loving’s guest is teenaged activist and Oregon Zoo Arctic Ambassador Caroline Bass, who traveled to the far northern reaches of Manitoba, Canada this fall with Polar Bears International to learn more about global warming and the threatened habitat of polar bears. What can we do to save the planet?

Article Co-Authored by Caroline at the PBI Leadership Camp:
A Lazy Bear & Energized Teens

 (Photos by Caroline Bass)

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."
