But sealing their minds against reality will not keep it at bay. Changes are coming, and the more we close our minds and eyes the more serious it will be. We and our children and grandchildren are the hostages to the foolishness of our generation. This has got to stop.</p> Thu, 05 Jun 2014 19:56:00 +0000 Stephen Gottlieb 91996 at http://wamc.org Local Advocates Praise EPA Clean Power Plan http://wamc.org/post/local-advocates-praise-epa-clean-power-plan <p></p><p></p><p>The Environmental Protection Agency announced new rules to limit carbon emissions on Monday.

If not, why not? The Bible records many prophets and the price of ignoring them. Surely making clear the moral and religious imperative of preventing catastrophe is a basic function, a duty of the clergy.</p><p> Tue, 27 May 2014 19:51:00 +0000 Stephen Gottlieb 91370 at http://wamc.org 5/14/14 Panel http://wamc.org/post/51414-panel <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>Today's panelists are WAMC’s Alan Chartock, University at Albany Journalism Professor and Investigative Reporter, Rosemary Armao and Daily Freeman Publisher Emeritus, Ira Fusfeld.</p><p>Topics include:<br />EU on Google<br />Climate Change and Security<br />MERS<br />ATT Deal / Direct TV<br />Geithner Book<br />Where is Casey Kasem?</p><p> Wed, 14 May 2014 13:00:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 90401 at http://wamc.org 5/14/14 Panel 5/13/14 Panel http://wamc.org/post/51314-panel <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>Today's panelists are WAMC’s Alan Chartock, Times Union Associate Editor Mike Spain and University at Albany Journalism Professor and Investigative Reporter, Rosemary Armao.</p><p>Topics include:<br />Polar Melt<br />US / Nigeria<br />Primary Opponent Dies<br />ATT Deal / Direct TV<br />Geithner Book<br />MERS Confirmed<br />TU Stories</p><p> Tue, 13 May 2014 13:00:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 90290 at http://wamc.org 5/13/14 Panel 5/7/14 Panel http://wamc.org/post/5714-panel <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>Today's panelists are WAMC’s Alan Chartock and Times Union Associate Editor, Mike Spain.</p><p>Topics include:<br />Climate Change Report<br />Monica Lewinsky<br />Nigerian Kidnapping<br />Obama Daughters Motorcade<br />TU Stories</p><p> Wed, 07 May 2014 13:00:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 89871 at http://wamc.org 5/7/14 Panel Dr. Alan Chartock's Morning Commentary http://wamc.org/post/dr-alan-chartocks-morning-commentary-169 <p></p><p>WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses the <a href="https://wamcpledge.wamc.org/alleg/WebModuleV862/Donate.aspx?P=PLEDGEPAGE&amp;PAGETYPE=PLG&amp;CHECK=2IHggXVb%2BSb9fFZFtBRGQb1YhDw50SikSh2nq0qouhg%3D">WAMC Locked Box</a>, a new report on climate change, and Monica Lewinsky.
