Hello wherever you are, and whenever you hear this heat emergency podcast from Radio Ecoshock.
It takes a lot to get me to make an special message like this. The last time I pulled the trigger was on Friday March 11th, 2011 – the very day the Fukushima nuclear reactors blew up in Japan. I knew those reactors had melted down. I knew it was a historic moment of high risk for the Northern Hemisphere, if not the planet. I made five special podcasts over the next five days, and then covered Fukushima ever since, including the historic conference in New York in the Spring of 2013.
