"We should leave the Arctic alone, it should be off limits. Not just because of the immediate environmental impact, but because of the climate imperative."

– Daphne Wysham, director of the Climate and Energy Program at the Center for Sustainable Economy, discussing the issues that motivated civil disobedience actions in Portland, Oregon that for nearly two days blocked Shell's icebreaker from joining the oil company's Arctic drilling fleet.

Opposition to Arctic Oil Drilling Provokes Civil Disobedience Actions Targeting Shell Icebreaker in Portland

MP3 Interview with Daphne Wysham, director of the Climate and Energy Program at the Center for Sustainable Economy, conducted by Scott Harris

kayaktivists

When a Royal Dutch Shell company oil rig attempted to leave the port of Seattle for an oil drilling project in the Arctic in mid-June, hundreds of climate activists in kayaks and small boats attempted to block the giant drilling platform's path. After the Coast Guard intervened, Shell's Polar Pioneer oil rig was able to depart for Arctic waters. Fast forward to late July, when hundreds of so-called "kayaktavists" in Portland, Oregon, employed similar tactics in order to block Shell's icebreaker Fennica, carrying an essential containment device, from departing to join the oil company's Arctic drilling fleet in the Chukchi Sea off the coast of Alaska.  Story continues

MP3 Interview with Anne Kelly, director of the policy program at Ceres, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

cleanpower

President Obama's Aug. 3 release of the final version of his Clean Power Plan, calls for a more rapid transition away from coal than a draft plan made public a year ago. The final rule attempts to avoid what the White House called an "early rush to gas," and encouraged earlier adoption by states of renewable energy sources. The plan's stated goal is to have 28 percent of the nation's power produced by renewables by 2030, up from 22 percent in the draft plan.  Story continues

July 30 marked the 50th anniversary of President Johnson's signing of the Medicare program into existence. In essence, the program is a single-payer health care system for America's 55 million senior citizens and those with serious and permanent disabilities. Widely popular among both young and old, Medicare has substantially lower administrative costs at 2 percent than the average administrative overhead of private, for-profit health insurance companies.  Story continues
