Changing Climate, April 2017

On April 2, I participated in a radio convo about climate change online Vegas Observations, http://kdwn.com. The show is being re-web/broadcast today at noon.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on March 28 that, among other things, rescinds environmental regulations aimed at reducing power plant emissions by 32% by 2030.

The “Executive Order on Promoting Energy Independence and Economic Growth” (online) was launched it at the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) headquarters with the President flanked by officials and coal miners.

The action – in tandem with previous budget-cutting measures of climate change programs – has attracted criticism from environmental organizations, business and the Catholic church.

Vegas Observations is hosted by good friend Bob Fisher. The hour-long discussion addresses eclectic topics all at once, sort of a hodgepodge of perspectives. Many thanks to the host and other participants for engaged discussion, random and engaged.

Technical note – apologies in advance for the poor video of an amazing experience. Bob and I are comparing and contrasting how well Facebook Live and Periscope work. Still figuring out the logistics of quality live video. And if I can figure out how to speak properly into the microphone.
