- Erich Pica, President of Friends of the Earth discusses the U.S. State Dept.’s just-released Environmental Impact Statement on the Keystone XL pipeline project, the response by environmental activist groups which oppose construction of the pipeline — and the frustratingly few public policy initiatives to effectively address climate change in the U.S. and around the world.
- Joel Berg, author of the book, All You Can Eat: How Hungry is America? who currently serves as executive director of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger. He discusses the recent Congressional agreement in the federal Farm Bill to cut $8 billion in funding for SNAP, the food stamp program over the next decade — while increasing subsidies for big agribusiness companies. He’ll also address the broader public policy debate on addressing hunger in America and growing poverty.
- Norman Solomon, a former California congressional candidate, co-founder of RootsAction.org and author of War Made Easy, How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning us to Death. He talks about his recent article, “The State of Phony Populism,” which examines the failure of President Obama to honestly and effectively address the causes and antidote to long running economic inequality and the redistribution of wealth from the poor and middle class to the wealthiest one percent over the last several decades.
- A tribute to the late Pete Seeger, one of the world’s best-known folk-singers, song writers and social activists. We’ll air an interview with Pete Seeger conducted by Counterpoint – Between The Lines producer Scott Harris recorded on June 5, 1994 at the annual People’s Music Network Retreat in Pine Bush, New York. Seeger talks about music, democracy, capitalism, threats to the environment, the future of the human race and his Clearwater project.
