Ep125: Ecological Manic-Depressive

Another eco-news episode with various topics that like a forest interconnect but represent an equally diverse set of mental states: First I review the post-capitalist mindset with a comment about other options and a steady stater essay. I cover the newest environmental law outta Maine, and a quick rant about the US climate movement. In the 2nd half I alternate between the dark facts of loss of small farms and their topsoil, the ecological forestry research and natural backyard pools, and wrap up with a peek at big Oil’s next green-washing propaganda.
