Audio of Donald B. Louria from "Symposium: The Medical and Ecological Consequences of the Fukushima Nuclear Accident". NYC March 2013
John Betts is Executive Director, Western Silvicultural Contractors' Association. He explains super fires from Colorado to Australia to Canada. Why they burn so hot they can sterilize the soil. Why they cannot be put out.

Did you know the forests across the top of the world are being clear-cut on a massive scale? Will that affect your weather, or water supply?

For three years environment groups and the logging industry have been meeting, trying to preserve at least part of Canada's giant boreal forest. Not a single acre or hectare has been protected by any law.

The Green group Canopy has had enough. They quit the talks and went back to campaigning.

We have the Executive Director and Founder of Canopy on the line, Nicole Rycroft.

One speaker at the March 2013 conference on Fukushima in New York caught my attention with his off-topic introduction. Donald B. Louria, a medical MD and member of Physicians for Social Responsibility asked "Are we losing our faith in the future? If we do, what are the likely consequences?".

Louria was leading in to his studies on the impacts of pessimism, and his book titled "reThink: A Twenty-First Century Approach to Preventing Societal Catastrophes.

Think happy thoughts - or else!
