Navigating Diversity - May The Force Be With You

Jul 28, 2020

In this special episode, host Krystoff Kissoon and guest Alma Jam break Navigating Diversity tradition, and shift the entire focus of the conversation away from the reactionary politics and incendiary news of these extraordinary times, toward trying to answer some of the deeper questions, the big questions, that gives all of this and all our lives meaning.

After Covid-19, how can we get the economy back on track and fight climate change?  Citizens’ Climate Lobby  (CCL) proposes a solution, called Carbon Fee and Dividend, that is supported by over 3500 economists.  A climate bill based on this proposal is called the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (HR 763); it's now in the House of Representatives with 81 co-sponsors.  This bill goes even farther than the Carbon Fee and Dividend idea, it assists and protects our agricultural industry and military security.  Listen to this episode to hear how it works.   The Pocatello Chapter of CCL can be found on Facebook.

Tonight’s show kicks off an ongoing series on this show, where we explore recording from different communities around the world. For the next hour, we will be celebrating jazz music from the historic city of Philadelphia! So many legendary musicians have cut their teeth in Philly, and we’ll be enjoying an exciting variety of styles throughout the show.
