Russ George, the one-man geoengineering phenomenon, strikes again! And despite an ocean dumping and geoengineering ban by 192 countries, George has help from Canada and the U.S.
This time the green-talking former CEO of Planktos Corp didn't just dump some red paint off the back of rocker Neil Young's yatch, as he did in 2002. He's secretly added 100 tons of iron sulphate to the ocean off Canada's West Coast.
In 2007, Radio Ecoshock did a full one hour interview with Russ George, followed by a second program with his critics, including Pat Mooney of the ETC Group. Interest is huge. The Pat Mooney interview has been downloaded at least 20,000 times.
After Planktos went down in flames, amid accusations of shady promotors and stock manipulation, Russ George faded from the public eye. But he never stopped dreaming he could help stop climate change using ocean life.
George wants to make money by seeding the world's oceans with iron to stimulate algae growth. Now the ETC Group has revealed, his latest plot.
Stay tuned for another industrial crime. Indigenous women in Canada are raising their voices against the polluting tar sands, and the pipeline releasing their poison to the world.
Others talk about indigenous people, trying to adopt that culture's wisdom. On Radio Ecoshock, First Nations people speak for themselves.
Who cares about another pipeline in Northern Canada? When it threatens to pump dirty Tar Sands oil to China and the world, everyone needs to know.
Those who know best are the native people living close to the biggest source of industrial pollution on the planet. And those depending on the thousand streams risking poison from the Northern Gateway Pipeline from Alberta through British Columbia, to the pristine Great Bear Rainforest and coast.
First Nations women are taking the lead in speaking up for their communities, and the future. If the Tar Sands power Asia and America, climate catastrophe is assured. We can't let that happen.
