WS Radio: Global Warming audio & today's show

UPDATE: Dr. Brad Rodu, professor of oncology at the University of Louisville, will be our interview subject today. Dr. Rodu is very controversial for suggesting that smokeless tobacco--like Swedish Snus--is 98 per cent safer than smoking cigarettes. Because of this, Dr. Rodu recommends that smokers switch to smokeless, that government health authorities switch from their current policies of tobacco elimination to harm reduction, and has angered the anti-tobacco community in the process.

Warren Kinsella is sick, and has lost his voice. We'll be rescheduling our interview with Warren, but the show must go on. On today's program, we'll be discussing jury nullification, the difference between "the ethics of conviction" and the "ethics of responsibility," and recent news items of interest. Of course, we'll go ahead and mock Earth Hour mercilessly. As always, Gerry Nicholls will join us to talk about Canada in the second hour of the program.

You can listen live from 4 to 6 p.m. Eastern Time by clicking here (QuickTime). An indirect link is here. To participate in the show, you can call in at 888-7-WBGUFM (free from anywhere, including Calgary), or email us at politicalanimals-at-wbgufm-dot-com.

In the meantime, here is the full show with last week's guests Roy Spencer, Todd Albert, and our regular Canadian commentator, Gerry Nicholls. Things got a little heated in the studio with Roy and Todd debating the merits of global warming, and what a reasonable public policy for climate change might look like. All this, just in time for Earth Hour.

Sorry, guys, but I sound like Demi Moore after she's been gargling glass shards. Washed down with battery acid.

The doc gave me some meds and I will be on the mend soon (I hope), and look forward to a new date to debate. My apologies for this.

Rest assured that if you enjoy smokeless tobacco the health nut lobby will pull statistics out of some ass or other showing that 46000 people a year will die from this product.
