"Climate Consensus", John Abraham on Atheists Talk #328, August 30, 2015

There is a much-bandied-about figure in the reporting of Global Climate Change: 97% of climate scientists agree that the science shows that the climate is warming and that the increase in global mean temperatures is due to human activity. This is a strong consensus, and it is based on readings that come from many sources. The temperatures of the ocean and air and the raising of the sea levels all indicate that the level of carbon dioxide and methane are acting as we would expect them to under anthropogenic climate change models. They are wreaking havoc on the natural world and threaten our food supplies and habitable environments. The ice caps at our poles are melting, and the Alps are shedding their glaciers. As a species, we are letting inaction on climate doom us, and we need to make some political decisions as to what we are going to do. Are we going to mitigate the effects of climate change? Are we going to adapt? 

Dr. John Abraham is our guest for this show. Abraham is a research professor in thermal sciences at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul.  He is a member of the Climate Science Rapid Response Team and has been our guest in shows past. Dr. Greg Laden will conduct the interview.

"Food Supply Failure", Emily Cassidy on Atheists Talk #327, August 23, 2015

Emily Cassidy is a research analyst with the Environmental Working Group (EWG) who studies the impact of agriculture on land, water and air. Global warming and increasing population pressure are stressing our ability to grow and distribute food to feed us all. Is there a breaking point and when do we reach it? Is reliance on meat reducing our ability to efficiently provide the caloric needs of 9 billion people? If we solve these problems for the 21st century are we encouraging continued exponential population growth? 

Dr. Greg Laden is going to discuss these issues with Ms. Cassidy, and we may even have a little time to talk about the role of genetic engineering.

"Personal Autonomy and the Satanic Temple", John Wreisner, John Powell & Karissah Peterson on Atheists Talk #326, August 16, 2015

The Satanic Temple sees the figurehead of Satan as more of a metaphor than a deity, according to John Wreisner who is the head of the Minneapolis chapter of the Temple. The group focuses on social activism as a religion, though members of the group are generally atheists. The national group has been in the news for their move to install a monument to Baphomet at the Oklahoma capitol fairgrounds alongside a display of the Ten Commandments, they have created an activity book to pass out to children in schools where bibles are distributed, and locally they have been working to change the culture of religious bullying of GLBT kids in the Anoka-Hennepin School District.

John Wreisner, John Powell and Karissah Peterson are three of the leaders of the local Temple and will be our guests on this show.

"Center for Medical Progress", Amanda Marcotte on Atheists Talk #325, August 9, 2015

This week, the Center for Medical Progress has released its fifth video claiming to show that Planned Parenthood is illegally selling aborted fetuses for medical research. This video, like each video before it, has been shown to be deceptively edited to hide Planned Parenthood's actual practices--allowing abortion patients in a small number of states to donate tissue as a service to those patients. In response to the deceptive video, Senate Republicans attempted to defund Planned Parenthood and failed. In the meantime, the Center for Medical Progress is being investigated for illegal practices of their own.

This Sunday, Amanda Marcotte, writer and host of the RH Reality Cast, will return to Atheists Talk to fill us in on these videos and place them in the context of the current political assault on reproductive rights.
