The neighborhood movie theater of my youth: Manor Theater,
Prospect Park, Pa. (destroyed by fire in 1970)

Three short, Progressive documentary films on our environmental crises--specifically, on fossil fuels, air and water pollution, consumer-electronics trash, and Wall Street schemes.

The films are
  • 300 Years of Fossil Fuels in 300 Seconds by the Post Carbon Institute (Richard Heinberg)
  • The Story of Cap & Trade by Annie Leonard
  • The Story of Electronics by Annie Leonard
Annie Leonard is now (since 2014) Executive Director of Greenpeace USA.

This program was previously broadcast, as NWN #283, in August 2013. MP3s downloaded from the links, above, are labelled with the older program number.
