Guy and Mike entertained calls from listeners on this week’s show. Topics ranged from local to international, and included abrupt climate change, human behavior, the Breakthrough Energy Coalition, American Geophysical Union, and the methane situation at Porter Ranch.
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

This week we were joined by Mark Austin, a former student of Guy’s at the University of Arizona and, more recently, government contractor and truth-teller. For the past 14 years, Mark has worked in several capacities for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security since its inception. Mark revealed abundant information you’ll not hear elsewhere. We’ll dedicate next week’s show to discussing it on the air. Please call in with your comments and questions after listening to this show.
