The Plutonium Files: MIT scientists fed radioactive oatmeal to schoolboys to see what would happen

Between 1946 and 1953, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) conducted a horrifying experiment in which schoolboys were fed radioactive oatmeal, simply to support marketing claims made by the Quaker Oats company! The study was performed on more than 100 boys, many of whom were wards of the state and had been falsely declared “mentally retarded,” according to The New York Times. …

CHRISTY RODGERS – Is the World Living or Dead?

Physicists announced recently that they had discovered gravitational waves, confirming a one hundred year-old prediction of Einstein’s General Relativity theory. As remarkable as the discovery seems, it does little or nothing to resolve a profound quandary in physics that is indicative of a larger dilemma within the whole idea of the “scientific world-view.” First let me say why this matters …

Global warming will drive vast, unpredictable shift in natural wealth

Many studies have shown that critical natural resources, including fish stocks, are moving poleward as the planet warms. A new Yale-led study suggests that these biophysical changes are also reallocating global wealth in unpredictable, and potentially destabilizing, ways. On its surface, these biophysical movements will shift resources from communities and nations closer to the equator into places closer to the …

BRUCE E. LEVINE – Psychiatry’s “Defect Model of Mental Illness:” a Path for Those it Has Failed

Depressed, anxious, and substance-abusing people can beat themselves up for being defective. And psychiatrists and psychologists routinely validate and intensify their sense of defectiveness by telling them that they have, for example, a chemical-imbalance defect, a genetic defect, or a cognitive-behavioral defect. In plain words, many depressed, anxious, and substance-abusing persons think: “I feel fucked up because I am essentially …

Gravitational waves found: the inside story

One hundred years ago Albert Einstein in his general theory of relativity predicted the existence of a dark side to the cosmos. He thought there were invisible “gravitational waves”, ripples in space-time produced by some of the most violent events in the cosmos – exploding stars, colliding black holes, perhaps even the Big Bang itself. For decades, astronomers have gathered strong corroborative …

Gravitational waves and why their discovery is such a big deal

Scientists working at the LIGO experiment in the US have for the first time detected elusive ripples in the fabric of space and time known as gravitational waves. There is no doubt that the finding is one of the most groundbreaking physics discoveries of the past 100 years. But what are they? To best understand the phenomenon, let’s go back in time …

Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 12.17.15

WHAT HAPPENED IN PARIS? The new climate accord is being widely hailed as an historic turning point. Energy expert PAUL GIPE tells us why he thinks Paris will make a huge difference in RENEWABLE ENERGY and the transition to a green-powered Earth.

Paul currently works in Bakersfield, California, and describes a major victory just won in defeating a big carbon burner there. We also track the history of Denmark’s world-changing decision to go with wind power instead of nuclear, confirming the impact that Solartopian activism can have on our future.

Most of all, Paul describes the latest spectacular advances in wind and solar technologies, and how they can and will be owned by the communities that use them.

Paul’s new WIND POWER FOR THE REST OF US will be published in 2016. You can reach him at www.wind-works.org. And if you want the real story on the future of green power, don’t miss this show!

How to Build a Culture of Good Health

“I never get angry,” says a character in one of Woody Allen’s movies. “I grow a tumor instead.” Much more scientific truth is captured in that droll remark than many doctors would recognize. Mainstream medical practice largely ignores the role of emotions in the physiological functioning of the human organism. Yet the scientific evidence abundantly shows that people’s lifetime emotional …
