"Renewable costs of wind and solar and batteries are dropping dramatically; there's massive disruptions in the fossil fuel industry because of this extra competition. And nothing Trump can really do can stop that transition. It's going to happen."

– Tim Donaghy, senior research specialist with Greenpeace USA, on how there's a clean energy revolution moving ahead that President Trump can't stop.

With Rollback of Obama Climate Regulations, Trump Declares War on Planet Earth

MP3 Interview with Tim Donaghy, senior research specialist with Greenpeace USA, conducted by Scott Harris

170414a-climate.jpg

During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump stated his belief that climate change was a hoax created by the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive. Since taking office, the real estate billionaire and reality TV star has surrounded himself with Cabinet appointees, many of whom are climate change deniers, who directly worked for the fossil fuel industry or did the bidding of Big Oil companies as public officials. Trump's Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, former CEO of the world’s largest publicly-traded oil company Exxon-Mobil, being the most prominent example.  Story continues

GOP Congress and Trump Strip Americans of Internet Privacy Protections

MP3 Interview with Chris Calabrese, vice president for Policy at the Center for Democracy and Technology, conducted by Scott Harris

privacy

Under the rarely used Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress and the president to repeal recently passed federal regulations, on April 3, President Trump signed legislation revoking Internet privacy rules approved last year by the Federal Communications Commission. Those rules, passed under the Obama-appointed FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, would have implemented broadband privacy protections preventing Internet service providers from selling consumer’s personal data without first obtaining an individual’s authorization. The reversal of the earlier FCC rules means that Internet service providers can sell their customer’s browsing history to advertisers, in addition to geolocation, financial, healthcare and children's information.  Story continues

Connecticut Rally Demands Equal Rights for Transgender Community

MP3Excerpt of rally speeches by Tony Ferraiolo and two members of Voke Spoken Word at Yale University, recorded and produced by Melinda Tuhus

transgender

The issue of transgender rights has been in the news spotlight again in recent weeks, as the state of North Carolina recently passed a law overturning its earlier so-called "bathroom bill," which required public school students to use the bathroom that corresponded to the gender on their birth certificates, rather than their current gender identity. Trans-rights advocates say the new law has many flaws and they're hoping national corporations and sports organizations will continue to boycott the state until lawmakers pass legislation that truly recognizes trans-citizens’ human rights.  Story continues
