On this week’s edition of Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog, dusts off his solar panels for a chat with Judi Jennings and Nancy Tierney, two Louisville-based members of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth (KFTC). We discuss their grassroots efforts to build a Just Transition for Kentucky, both the history of this work and the relevance today in terms of environmental and human health and the economy. We also discuss the links between regions of the Commonwealth, including why residents of urban areas should care about the coal industry and the lives of miners. Judi and Nancy share information on the current state of renewable energy in Kentucky and the focus on solar despite the passage of SB100, the anti-net metering bill. A 100% Renewable Energy resolution, for instance, is currently working its way to Metro Council, and Kentucky youth from the Sunrise Movement have helped elevate national interest in a Green New Deal.More information is available at http://kftc.orgAs always, our interview is followed by your community action calendar for the week, so get your calendars out and get ready to take action for sustainability NOW!Sustainability Now! airs on FORward Radio, 106.5fm, WFMP-LP Louisville, every Monday at 6pm and repeats Tuesdays at 12am and 10am.

On this week’s edition of Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog, superglues himself behind the microphone for a conversation with Alice Melendez, Extinction Rebellion Kentucky's Lexington-based organizer. XR KY is part of the global movement to take back our future from corporate greed and kamikaze leaders who refuse to take action to tackle the greatest crisis facing humanity. If we don’t take swift action to divorce humanity from fossil fuels, humans will be part of the mass extinction we have already unleashed on planet Earth. Listen as Alice describes her coalition work to resist the proposed Appalachian storage hub for natural gas liquids, to support the people’s agenda and a citizen-based counter-balance to City Hall, and to organize Kentuckians for participation in the Global Climate Strike on September 20th, 2019.While Extinction Rebellion was launched in London in November 2018, it has spread across the globe. Nationally, a XR groups in half dozen cities have done arrestable actions and there are chapters in over a dozen places around the country. http://xrebellion.orghttp://www.facebook.com/xrebelkyContact Alice at xrebelky@protonmail.comAlice is also organizing the 9th Annual Whippoorwill Festival in the Red River Gorge July 19-21, 2019.

Save Our Schools with Dear JCPS | Bruce Maples and Robert Kahne | 6-6-19 by FORward Radio
This episode of "Critical Thinking for Everyone" is a critical dive into the 1958 film "The Long Hot Summer." While Brian was away doing CT training in another city this week, Patty invites Kate Bringardner into the booth to talk through the text and subtext of this classic film and the interesting insights (the biases! assumptions!) we can gain about race, class and gender, both then and now. If you haven't seen the film, we provide a synopsis and lots of fun and nerdy commentary to help you follow along.We discuss critical thinking in many different aspects during this hour-long conversation about a variety of topics. All of it comes back to our ability to think about our own thinking."Critical Thinking for Everyone" airs on FORward Radio, 106.5fm and forwardradio.org, WFMP-LP Louisville, every Thursday at 5 pm EST and repeats Thursday at midnight and Friday at 11 am. Please listen live at www.forwardradio.org/. Find us on Facebook at "Critical Thinking for Everyone".Our music is by Bensound, and it is free and available to anyone to use--www.bensound.com/.
