RAPID COLLAPSE

Would you believe everything from food to power to gasoline could disappear in just a matter of weeks? From Ireland, David Korowicz explains how. Everybody could be hit, including dear old Australia.

There is a small industry of pundits warning something is about to collapse. A large and growing public suspects they are right.

From Sydney to Boggabri: Smash ANZ & Whitehaven Coal

Whitehaven coal and the destruction of Leard state forest while their ATM card slots were glued shut. During the Mardi Gras festivities numerous ANZ “GAYTM’s” were vandalised with paint and in the days following the parade two of the pinkwashed machines on Oxford St were smashed with a metal bar.

Climate Dark Age

The bad news is planet Earth is already committed to very dangerous climate change. Dr. Michael Jennings published a paper in 2012 showing we are already in the worst case scenario. We'll talk with Dr. Jennings, from the University of Idaho.

We may be saved from utter disaster if an economic collapse comes sooner rather than later. Dr. Sing C. Chew will give us the good news about Dark Ages, and the signs we are entering one now.

American Fukushima

FUKUSHIMA - 3 YEARS LATER AND AMERICA LEARNED NOTHING

On the third anniversary of the worst nuclear disaster in the world, I talk with the authors of "Fukushima, The Story of a Nuclear Disaster".

As you'll hear, America is just waiting for it's own nuclear mega-disaster. Despite promises after March 2011, the U.S. industry is still stalling on safety-critical fixes to aging reactors. It's just a matter of time.

I interview a 17 year veteran of the American nuclear industry, expert David Lochbaum from the Union of Concerned Scientists.

The California Drought: Is this the big one?

Australia is no stranger to drought, or predictions of long-term drying. It's possible early settlers in both Australia and California simply lucked out on a long cyclical wet period, to be followed by much worse.

Scientists in North America have discovered past droughts in the southwest, including California, lasted hundreds of years. Is this the start of the big one?

From Sydney to Nantes, resistance & sabotage

On the evening of the 22nd of Feburary we vandalised the local headquarters of VINCI and their subsidiary company 'Advitam' in the Seven Hills industrial zone in western Sydney.
Some windows were cracked, and the slogans: “AGAINST VINCI AND ITS WORLD” &
“THE ZAD IS EVERYWHERE” were painted.

This small act was made in response to a call for actions in solidarity with the monumental struggle in Notre-Dame-des-Landes, France, against an airport which Vinci has been contracted to build.

Whitehaven coal mine offsets not compatible and in breach of mine approval conditions

The Whitehaven coal mine at Maule's Creek near Boggabri in north Western NSW involves the destruction of a substantial part of the ecologically distinct Leard Forest. One of the requirements for approval was the provision of environmental offsets to balance 'like for like' against the destruction of high biodiversity habitat. But the latest environmental report by Dr John Hunter advises the offsets for critically endangered ecological communities are "vastly overstated".

Extreme Weather Is Climate Disruption

In addition to UK floods, I cover current heat waves in Australia, California, Brazil/Argentina, Alaska and Siberia. Did you know that increased rooftop solar in southern Australia in 2014 saved the electric system from blackouts experienced in the heat of 2009?

Normally on Radio Ecoshock, my expert guests do the talking, while I listen and learn along with you. But this week there are major developments here on Earth that are not coming through to you clearly, or not reported at all.
