Welcome to another shocking show about the state of nature and the world. For those paying attention, my two guests on this program should blow your mind.
We discover another whole side to the fracking debate, with Dr. Yuri Gorby. He's a microbiologist with a specialty in life deep underground. Gorby tells us fracking is dredging up organisms encased in the earth for the past hundreds of millions of years. Some of them have the potential to change chemistry and life on the surface in ways as yet unknown.
It's sounds like sci fi, but it's truth-fi - and that's just the start, as we explore the tiny world, including toxic rain.
Then we introduce a film that dares to question the whole green movement, and your preconceptions about climate change.
Maybe we should protest less about the Keystone Pipeline and Arctic drilling, and more about what's on our dinner plate. Does our vast herd of meat slaves cause more greenhouse gases than our cars, boats, trains, and planes combined?
A few small voices, often silenced by laws suits and government harassment, say we have to save the world by changing what we eat. Are your brave enough to hear the awful truth?
