GUESTS FOR WEDNESDAY APRIL 9, 2014 ON THE JEFF SANTOS SHOW: It's Green Day Wednesday! Do you agree with politicians who want to make addressing Climate Change a top priority?.
- Rona Fried, Founder & CEO of www.SustainableBusiness.com, a global news and networking website dedicated to green business. It's "Green Day Wednesday"...some disturbing news this week with the latest update on climate change by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) AND a new high with the atmosphere exceeding 400parts-per-million of carbon....even though that news is bleak and frightening, Rona always has something positive to share from the world of green news stories she's been writing about at sustainablebusiness.com:
These are just a few of the Green stories from www.SustainableBusiness.com this week: Koch Brothers' anti-Obama Ads are really anti-Climate Change Ads; Two of the world's biggest solar companies (Spain's Abengoa and SunEdison) are going public; and in not-so-good news, Tennessee bans Mass Transit! That's right, the Tennessee State Senate passed a bill that essentially blocks state mass transit projects (Americans for Prosperity pushed this amendment through)!
- Len Egert, Executive Director for the SAG-AFTRA San Francisco-Northern California Local. This week SAG-AFTRA launched a "Save Local Radio" Campaign to help staff at San Francisco's 96.5 KOIT FM station fight back against pay cuts and job changes that they've been dealing with since media conglomerate Entercom bought the station in 2007 and proceeded to "gut" their union contract. They are currently negotiating for a new contract, and Len will tell us the key terms they're hoping to include, such as the "Use and Re-use" of broadcast materials and other key issues.... We'll also talk about the importance of Locally owned and run media - for the community and for the broadcast media workers!
