    A Poisonous Enviro Show

    Greetings Earthlings. You may recall our previous shows on rodenticide poisoning leading to tragic deaths of key predators. This time Laura Kiesel of Save Arlington Wildlife joins us to discuss a petition to "the Pesticide Board Subcommittee of the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources to immediately suspend the registrations of all anticoagulant rodenticide products and conduct an individual review of their active ingredients". Let's end the slaughter, OK? The Enviro Show Quote of the Week is spot on for this show: “We need, in a special way, to work twice as hard to help people understand that the animals are fellow creatures, that we must protect them and love them as we love ourselves.” — Cesar Chavez The Enviro Show on WXOJ-LP (103.3 fm) and streaming at www.ValleyFreeRadio.org from Florence, MA every other Tuesday, 6:00 to 7:00pm. Or anytime at: https://rss.com/podcasts/enviroshow/rebroadcast .

  • A White Mountain National Forest Enviro Show

    A White Mountain National Forest Enviro Show

    Greetings Earthlings. You may recall we recently featured the potential logging threat in the Green Mountain National Forest with our friend Zack Porter of Standing Trees ? Well, Zack is back this time with Standing Trees active member Jerry Curran. We'll be looking at a similar mindless threat to the neighboring White Mountains National Forest in New Hampshire. The U.S. Forest Service (who actually only serve the logging industry) continues business-as-usual with mind-numbing climate crimes across the nation. Our Enviro Show Quote of the Week comes from on of our own in Massachusetts: "We need new and old trees, solar panels and forests, dense housing and accessible green space." - Sen. Ed Markey introducing the recent Trees as a Public Good Earth Day forum. The Enviro Show on WXOJ-LP (103.3 fm) and streaming at www.ValleyFreeRadio.org from Florence, MA every other Tuesday, 6:00 to 7:00pm. Or anytime at: https://rss.com/podcasts/enviroshow/rebroadcast .

  • A Smart Solar Enviro Show

    A Smart Solar Enviro Show

    Greetings Earthlings. Spring is upon us and the days are getting longer, more daytime to resist The Machine! Those corporados and their enablers are planning yet more deforestation for corporate solar arrays and associated explosive battery siting here in the Commonwealth and across the nation. The struggle for smarter siting continues. Sharon Weizenbaum of Smart Solar Shutesbury returns to the show joined by Eric S Bachrach of Smart Solar Amherst. Our Enviro Show Quote of the Week is right in line with this week's show: “What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.” - Chris Maser The Enviro Show on WXOJ-LP (103.3 fm) and streaming at www.ValleyFreeRadio.org from Florence, MA every other Tuesday, 6:00 to 7:00pm. rebroadcast Thursdays at 2pm. in MA.

  • A Coming Home Enviro Show

    A Coming Home Enviro Show

    A Coming Home Enviro Show Greetings Earthlings. We follow-up our Earth Days activities with an Earth-based story that warms the heart and stirs the soul. Rob Edward, president of the Rocky Mountain Wolf Action Fund joins us to talk about the reintroduction of wolves to Colorado. Some humans wiped them out, other humans brought them back. How's that going? Stay tuned. But now it's time for........Revenge of the Critters! More on the Elephants' Revenge. Our Enviro Show Quote of the Week is in keeping with our interview: We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes. I realized then, and have known ever since, that there was something new to me in those eyes something known only to her and to the mountain. I was young then, and full of trigger-itch; I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view. - Aldo Leopold The Enviro Show on WXOJ-LP (103.3 fm) and streaming at www.ValleyFreeRadio.org from Florence, MA every other Tuesday, 6:00 to 7:00pm.

  • A Good Earth Scouts Enviro Show

    A Good Earth Scouts Enviro Show

    Greetings Earthlings. Happy Earth Week! Back in the day, both Girl & Boy Scouts had the motto "Be Prepared" but today the Girl Scouts have apparently replaced that motto with The Girl Scout Law which includes "use resources wisely" & "make the world a better place". Our guests on the show this week have done that and way more, they saved a forest with mature & old-growth trees! Sounds like they were more than prepared, yes? Us elders would love to do that here in Massachusetts but our time is running short (can you hear us @MassDCR @MassGovernor & @MassEEA ? ) No? Better think twice, the scouts are watching! How about all those #ClimateGoals ?? More on that later. As always we will bring you along to meet this week's Fool-on-the-Hill and to see Those Whose Brains Were Small, as well as our constant reminder that "It's the Climate Crisis, Stupid!" but first it's time for......Revenge of the Critters! The Enviro Show on WXOJ-LP (103.3 fm) and streaming at www.ValleyFreeRadio.org from Florence, MA every other Tuesday, 6:00 to 7:00pm. Or anytime at: https://rss.com/podcasts/enviroshow/rebroadcast .
