On this week's Global Research News Hour, we mark Earth Day with two interviews related to the urgent call to defend the planet from environmental damage.
First, we hear from Michael J Murphy, director/producer of the films "What in the World are the Spraying" and "Why in the World are they Spraying". He discusses the clear and present threats associated with Geo-Engineering including so-called 'chemtrails' and speculates on who benefits and who does not from efforts to control the weather.
Carrie Saxifrage is a sustainability reporter for the Vancouver Observer and the author of the book "The Big Swim: Coming Ashore in a World Adrift". She discusses how popular action can more easily be mobilized by changing the narrative and the way we approach the dilemma of climate collapse and other environmental hazards.
This week's feature guest is Author, blogger and radio journalist Stephen Lendman. He discusses American Presidential politics, his lack of faith in the system, the US-backed agendas in Cuba, Venezuela, Yemen, Syria, Iran and Ukraine, and his fears of another major war being triggered in coming months.
Changing the Way Money Works: The Steady State Economy and Sharing Law
Description: With the current economic framework centered around greed, the result has been environmental desolation and social interactions that set human beings against each other.
The mandate for everlasting economic growth has pushed the Earth to its natural limits.
This week's Global Research News Hour focuses on the need to change economics as usual. Is it possible?
Our guests include James Magnus-Johnston, the Canadian Director of the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy, and Janelle Orsi, co-founder and executive director of The Sustainable Economies Law Center in the San Francisco Bay Area.
On this Holiday edition of the Global Research News Hour, we hear speeches from a public event in support of American Iraq War Deserter Joshua Key. The event was held at the University of Winnipeg on March 29, 2015. Michelle Robidoux of the War Resisters Support Campaign updated the audience on the actions taken against Americans in Canada who sought sanctuary from the Iraq War. She is followed by Joshua Key' s legal representative. Then Joshua tells the story of how he went to Iraq, what he saw and why he ultimately deserted, and then his efforts to live in peace in Canada.
