TH Radio #205: Our War on Innocent Critters, Pollution's Cooling Effect, and the EPA's Cross to Bear
On this week's show (our second to last!) we look at a new plan that would turn yucky brownfields into verdant green energy farms, an EPA big wig who "crossed" the line (that's a crucifixion joke), the US Wildlife Services' brutal war on innocent critters, and sewage sensors in Brooklyn waterways. Also, SolarCity gets ready to go public, the 2016 Prius may be American-made, and how a compassionate couple relocated the 30,000 honeybees living in their attic.

TH Radio #204: A BP Engineer is Arrested, Obama Acts Serious, and Discovery Skates Over the Science
This week on the podcast, Brian and I look at the EPA’s new fracking rules, how Vermont may ban the practice altogether, and ALEC’s role in greasing the wheels. Obama tells Rolling Stone that he’s putting climate and energy at the top of his list (again), the US and UK pony up dough for floating wind turbines at sea, Burger King gets more humane, and a BP engineer is arrested for his role in the 2010 oil spill. We also discuss how Discovery Channel’s Frozen Planet finale skates over the part where man causes global warming. Oh, and there’s some bad news at the end. Sorry.

TreeHugger Radio #203: Penguins on the Rebound, Ford’s New Electric, and the Future of Food
This week on the show we look at new ways to spy on penguins using satellites (the scientists are using the satellites, not the penguins), yet more mashugana with Keystone XL, and a new survey showing that Americans connect crazy weather with climate change. We also talk about how the FDA has suddenly gotten more serious about pumping antibiotics into farm animals, and Brian gives us the scoop from the Future Tense food conference as well as his review of the new Ford Focus EV.

Gus Speth Envisions America the Possible
Some people like to call James Gustave Speth the Yoda of the green movement, but most people just know him as Gus. With the dry humility of a Jedi, Gus Speth downplays his roles as cofounder of the NRDC, creator the World Resources Institute, administrator of the UN Development Program, chair of environmental quality under Carter, and dean of the Yale School of Forestry. Speth talks to us about his new book, America the Possible: Roadmap to a New Economy, in which he calls for deep reforms to break our single-minded fetish with economic growth, invoke environmental sanity, and wrest financial power away from Wall Street and back to Main Street
