Fundamentalist churches hold back U.S. climate action. Rev Michael Dowd explains. Then new report from UNEP shows hundreds of billions spend on alternative energy last year. It's starting to tip.
Interviews by Alex Smith of Radio Ecoshock.

Incidental music by Alex Smith

Short clips for comment from DVD promo "The Green Dragon" by the Cornwall Alliance
For those who need station IDs in the 58 minute version there is a 45 second music bed at 25:50. Or edit in at second break point at 35:03

Later in this program we'll reveal the good and bad news about the growth of alternative energy around the world. We go to Stockholm to get the latest from a new United Nations report.

But first we need to tackle a gnarly problem: the marriage of big oil and coal money to large fundamentalist churches in the United States. It appears climate denying preachers are a roadblock to climate action in America.

Rev Michael Dowd (regular blogger at Huffington Post, itinerant preacher now on The Great Climate March) explains how fundamentalist churches and oil money combine to deny climate change.

Then I name names of who is endangering our future.

Eric Usher works on sustainable energy for the United Nations Environment Program. They've just issued their annual report on global investing in renewables like solar, wind, geothermal etc.

It's good news and bad. Alternative investments are down this year from last, but that's partly because the cost of solar power has dropped a lot. We look into which countries are going green, and the trends which just might take us out of fossil fuels by 2030 (?)
