May has been a month of escalated resistance to fossil fuel industries and a call for a rapid transition to clean renewable sources of energy. The month began with Break Free: two weeks of direct action targeting coal, oil and gas around the world. That was followed by a week of action called the Rubber Stamp Rebellion protesting the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for its approval of new fossil fuel infrastructure without adequate consideration of the impacts new projects will have on the health and safety of communities, harm to the environment or worsening of the climate crisis. We speak with three advocates who are working to stop dangerous fossil fuel projects.

John Fox is an outspoken leader of Friends of the Earth and talks about many issues affecting us in the environment and the world around us. John's group, Friends of the Earth, is coming off a major demonstration attended by 1,000's on Saturday April 16th, 2016. In protest and confrontation with the police over 200 demonstrated were arrested including our guest John Fox. Several hundred activist groups of all types attended in support of the rally including the leading group Friends of the Earth.
John's group is not a traditional environmental group. Instead they are an activist group that is fighting for the rights of the planet for all us and this beautiful earth of ours. John seeks to change the perception of the public, media and policy makers -- and effect policy change -- with hard-hitting, well-reasoned policy analysis and advocacy campaigns that describe what needs to be done, rather than what is seen as politically feasible or politically correct.
Topics discussed include climate Change, food, water, the air we breathe, demonstration of the devastation going on with forests and oceans and more.

About 5% of children have difficulty receiving “normal” sensory inputs from the environment — sound, light, smell, clothing, food, movement — and respond in ways that are deemed inappropriate, like crying, screaming, covering their ears, or tuning out.
Maybe they’re challenged in school or social situations; at the restaurant, mall, or airport; even with clothing tags or automatic flush toilets in public restrooms, to name just a few. Not all children are hypersensitive over-responders, however. Some might be under-responders who might be quiet, with a flat affect and low arousalresponse.
These children might have a kind of “neurological traffic jam” going on. If the adults in a child’s life don’t understand what’s happening, the child can be labeled and medicated in a variety of heartbreaking ways. The next time you hear that a child that is difficult, clumsy, picky, anxious, oppositional, quirky, etc., it might be worth looking into something called Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).
What is SPD? Is it sometimes misdiagnosed as ADHD?
How does SPD differ from Sensory integration dysfunction?
What do parents wish that the medical community better understood about SPD?
Is there a connection between colic/gastrointestinal symptoms and SPD?
What kind of treatments are helping children today and what’s on the horizon?
How are parents leading the way?
Today, the latest in health and healing, including poor sleep and Alzheimer's, healing benefits of turmeric, and breastfeeding may lower the risk of leukemia in children. Also, evidence on ineffectiveness of chemotherapy. Finland is the poster child for why the euro doesn't work. Plus, information on the placebo effect. And much more!
