On this show Post Carbon Radio will focus on how women are organizing across the country and globally to face the triple crisis, resist further destruction, and envision and bring into being a deeply better future for humanity. We'll hear from Robin Milam on the second Women's Congress for Rights of Future Generations just concluded in Minneapolis, MN, and her work with the Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature. She will be joined by Pennie Opal Plant, an artist, activist, Bay Area member of Idle No More and collaborator with Robin on Rights of Mother Earth. Pennie, who recently traveled to New York with Bing on the Climate Train, will talk about our responsibilities and relationship to Mother Earth, recent victories and lessons learned in ongoing struggles against climate madness in native country, reasons to be optimistic and strong moving forward together, and upcoming opportunities to plug in.

A 2-hour KWMR Special:
A collaboration between the Farm and Foodshed Report (Robin Carpenter- Host) and Post Carbon Radio (Bing Gong & Karen Nyhus - Co-hosts) featuring:

Severine von Tscharner Fleming - Director of Greenhorns: Young Farmers’ Movement and Agrarian Trust
Evan Wiig - Founder and Director of the Farmers’ Guild
Arron Wilder - Farmer, Table Top Farm, soil scientist, organizer of upcoming January 11th - Young Farmers’ Forum on Succession and Success Stories: The Future of Ranching and Farming in Marin
Molly Myerson - young Bolinas farmer, Little Wing Farm
Mickey Murch - young Bolinas farmer, Gospel Flat Farm & artist

A conversation with leaders of the new young agrarian movement discussing:
1. Challenges of farming and ranching nationally, in California, and locally in West Marin (access to land, economic, housing, shortage of farmers…)
2. Shortage of younger age farmers to begin farming where elder farmers are leaving off. What we can do to promote agriculture as a lifestyle in West Marin and beyond. How can the next generation of agrarians carry out the important work of growing food?
3. Pairing farmers and ranchers with landowners in West Marin and beyond. Specific programs geared towards that end (Landlink) networking with landowners.
4. Current examples of farmer/ranchers working with landowners - challenges and successes. Some potential scenarios whereby farmers/ranchers create benefits for landowners by improving land create potential income for otherwise unused land. Ecological services.
5. The upcoming forum in January 2015 on facilitating the continuing of an agrarian culture in Marin county (and beyond); working partnerships between landowners and agriculturalists.

I attended this amazing gathering of thoughts-leaders - over 50 speakers from many diverse fields - critiquing technology, our current mindset, and our separation from Nature. We are so immersed in technological change, we rarely stop or slow down to contemplate it’s impact on us, and question if we are better off today with our cell phones, computers, GMO’s, etc. The teach-in looked at new emerging technologies - nano-technology, synthetic biology, geo-engineering, drones, and others.

I was able to audiotape most of the teach-in, and will eventually archive the material here at wmpostcarbon.com. - Bing Gong, KWMR Post Carbon Radio co-host with Karen Nyhus

On today’s program:
Jerry Mander - Questions We Should Have Asked About Technology
Doug Tompkins - Technolgy & Nature/ Clash of Concepts
John Michael Greer - Author, “The Wealth of Nature”: False Promises

On this week's show, we interview two guests on the broader picture of drought in Northern California and the U.S. West. First, Stephanie Castle of the Center for Hydrologic Modeling at U.C. Irvine will tell us about her new findings concerning groundwater depletion in the Colorado River Basin, which supplies seven western states including California. Then we hear from Ann Maurice of the Ad Hoc Committee for Clean Water in Occidental, a 30-year veteran activist on water issues in Northern California. Ann will discuss the natural relationship of groundwater to surface flows, the engineered connections across county lines between source waters and our farms, taps, wells, vineyards and wildlife, and some of the political struggles she anticipates as California moves rapidly to regulate groundwater statewide.

KWMR has been covering the drought all year on a series of shows about water sources, supplies, scarcity, storage and strategies, including five shows on Amanda Eichstaedt's "Swimming Upstream." Two weeks ago on this show, we interviewed Brock Dolman about the California Drought. All these shows are downloadable at wmpostcarbon.com and we encourage you to listen to them for more detail on West Marin’s situation in particular, and that of coastal California more generally.

This week’s show is hosted by Karen Nyhus. Karen is a long-time activist on environmental, peace and social justice issues. Originally from Maine, she has lived in the bay area for over 30 years. With an undergraduate degree in Feminist Studies from Stanford and a Master's in Environmental Science and Policy from San Francisco State, she is also a technologist and writer who consults to the nonprofit sector. Karen and I met four years ago at the People’s Climate Conference in Bolivia. We’re both pleased to be collaborating on KWMR Post Carbon Radio about the converging crises of climate, economy, and war.

The California Drought - Interview with Brock Dolman, Director of Occidental Art & Ecology Center’s Water Institute promoting understanding of the importance of healthy watersheds to healthy communities. Brock gives us a holistic planetary perspective on water and climate, and a lesson on hydrological literacy, as well as what we are facing in California and locally in Marin and Sonoma.

California Water Security and Proposition 1 - Water Bond Measure - analysis by Chelsea Tu, Staff Attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity, who works on limiting land development and preserving freshwater resources for the public and endangered species.

The People’s Climate March on Sunday, September 21 was beyond awesome - young and old, all the diverse groups from many different perspectives came to put pressure on the world leaders to take action - such as anti-fracking, the militarization and climate, stopping fossil fuel subsidies, putting a tax on carbon, etc. On Monday, September 22, there were thousands of protestors at Flooding Wall Street shutting down traffic in front of the New York Stock Exchange.

This program includes Michael Klare, author of The Race for What's Left: The Global Scramble for the World's Last Resources, and Tamara Lorincz, researcher for the International Peace Bureau’s report, Demilitarization for Deep Decarbonization: Reducing Militarism and Military Expenditures to Invest in the UN Green Climate Fund and to Create Low-Carbon Economies and Resilient Communities, on a panel called Climate Change and Militarism: Following the Money and Understanding the Costs.

Michael Leon Guerrero, National Coordinator of the Our Power Campaign, speaking at the New School in NYC on Tuesday, Sept. 23 in a panel called, Toward Living Economies: Systems Alternatives, at the Peoples Climate Justice Summit, sponsored by the Climate Justice Alliance (CJA). Michael talks about frontline communities organized to forge a scalable, and social-economically just transition away from unsustainable energy towards local living economies to address the root causes of climate change.

John Pappan of the Omaha Pawnee Nation, working with Nebraska ranchers and farmers fighting the Keystone XL Pipeline, gives an Indigenous perspective.
Many thanks to KMO of the C-Realm Podcasts for some of the interviews.

It is my hope that this largest environmental march in history in NYC will be a spark for a much bigger global climate movement that will put millions on the streets to demand action on the climate. What’s at stake is a livable planet for future generations.
