"(Eric Holder's) blatant failure to go after Wall Street, the banks, the individuals responsible for (the economic crisis), I think that sends a message that corporations get a free pass, no matter what damage they bring to this country."

– Heidi Boghosian, former executive director of the National Lawyers Guild, on the mixed record of outgoing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder

Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder's Legacy: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

MP3 Interview with Heidi Boghosian, former executive director of the National Lawyers Guild, conducted by Scott Harris

holder

In a surprising shake up within the Obama administration, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced on Sept. 25 that he will resign his post as soon as a successor can be nominated and confirmed by the U.S. Senate. Holder, the first African-American attorney general in U.S. history, has been a lightning rod for Republican party criticism on many issues, including the government’s handling of the "fast and furious" gun-trafficking sting operation. This resulted in Holder being the first attorney general held in contempt by the U.S. House of Representatives.  Story continues

Florida Municipally-Owned Electric Utility First in Nation to Stop Use of Mountaintop Removal Coal

MP3 Interview with Jason Fults, co-founder of Gainesville Loves Mountains, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

mtr

Many forms of extreme energy extraction are employed in the United States, like deep-ocean oil drilling or horizontal fracturing, or fracking, for natural gas and oil. Among the oldest and most destructive practices is mountaintop removal coal mining, where the tops of mountain ridges in Appalachia are literally blown off to mine the coal seams, resulting in the waste rock and earth being dumped into the valleys below, often burying headwater streams. Opponents of mountaintop removal mining point to studies that have linked this mining process to health problems like cancer and cardiovascular disease.  Story continues

Billionaire Koch Brothers Investing Heavily in Climate Change Denial 'Research'

MP3 Interview with Connor Gibson, researcher with the Greenpeace investigation team, conducted by Scott Harris

koch

The massive September 21st People's Climate March in New York City, and dozens of other cities and towns around the globe, sent an unmistakable message to world leaders that a growing majority of the planet’s population are concerned about the destructive power of climate change and want governments to take substantive action. However, while many nations have set targets for reducing carbon emissions and other greenhouse gases that cause global warming, the United States government has been virtually unresponsive to the urgent call by a majority of the world’s scientists that imposing new regulations on industry are essential if we are to avoid global climate collapse.  Story continues
