Orion Magazine presents James Howard Kunstler: The Future of American Cities

As the climate warms, oil disappears, and the economy shakes and shifts, how will our urban places adapt? Will density and communal living be important tools for human resilience, or will city life become costly and unworkable—or even unlivable? Listen to Kunstler share his forecast for the American city, elaborate on his feature in the July/August 2011 issue of the magazine, and answer listener questions.

Economists and Democracy by Dani Rodrik - Project Syndicate

Raised on textbooks that obscure the role of institutions, economists often imagine that markets arise on their own, with no help from purposeful, collective action.

Southern Ocean Sentinel observes impacts of climate change - Science Show - 7 May 2011

Antarctica and the Southern Ocean exhibit clear impacts of climate change. Observing these physical changes far away from human influence is thought to be clear a indication of what's actually happening as the Earth warms. Andrew Constable describes what's being seen following recent trips down south. He says monitoring and measuring changes will allow us to correctly respond to a changing world. http://www.abc.net.au/rn/scienceshow/stories/2011/3210032.htm

Climate change and national security - Saturday Breakfast RN - 30 April 2011

We talk a lot these days about the politics of climate change, but what does it mean? Political change takes place in such a vastly different time frame to that of climate change -- 20 years is a long time in politics but a very short time for climatic shifts to occur -- so we're really talking about the way the concept of climate change has become a new, highly-charged element in the unpredictable mix of politics. This presents an enormous challenge to policy makers. http://www.abc.net.au/rn/saturdayextra/stories/2011/3203929.htm
