Weekly one hour program on the environment, Peak Oil, energy solutions in a hard economy. Interviews with, and speech excerpt from, top scientists, authors, and activists. Fourth year on the air, syndicated to over 20 stations, in the U.S. and Canada. Intended audience is the English-speaking world.

Radio-ready pro grade audio. Burn it and run it, for a weekly program, late-night slots, or occasional fill-in. Long shelf-life for each show.

Contains no station ID's of FCC-provoking language. Often has a music tail that can be cut, if you wish to insert your own station ID's. Or just run it.
