We are joined today by Dr. Helen Caldicott, the single most articulate and passionate advocate of citizen action to address the nuclear and environmental crises. She has devoted the last 45 years to an international campaign to educate the public about the medical hazards of the nuclear age and the necessary changes in human behavior to stop environmental destruction. Guy has a climate update as well.

Guy and Mike are joined by by two extraordinary women, Ama and Bo. Both have made choices that many are too fearful to ever consider. Both had the foresight early in their lives to live rather than make a living. They have been living on the fringe of the dominant culture for decades and have a wealth of knowledge most of us will never approach. Guy gives a climate update as well.

Nature Bats Last – 02.16.16

This week we visited with Doug Peacock, a prolific writer who lectures regularly about wilderness and veterans issues. He served two tours in Vietnam as a Green Beret medic, trying to preserve life on the edge of the battlefield. He came home an emotional and spiritual wreck. With the publication of Edward Abbey’s The Monkey Wrench Gang in 1975, Peacock became a hero not only to other veterans, but to a nascent contingent of environmentalists. Peacock was the subject of a feature film about grizzlies and Vietnam called Peacock’s War. The film premiered on PBS Nature, and won the grand prizes at the Telluride Mountain film and the Snowbird film festivals. You can read more about Peacock at his website, dougpeacock.net
