Scott Pruitt

We’re taking on Scott Pruitt, the Trump administration, the EPA, global warning, weather and climate change this week on TALKish with Halli Casser-Jayne when Andrew Revkin, the prize-winning science reporter and the author of a truly fascinating new book, WEATHER: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY FROM CLOUD ATLASES TO CLIMATE CHANGE joins me at my table at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Andrew Revkin has spent a quarter of a century covering subjects ranging from the assault on the Amazon to the Asian tsunami, from the troubled relationship of science and politics to climate change at the North Pole. Since 1995, he has been covering the environment for the New York Times, but his first prize-winning magazine articles on the human influence on climate were published more than 20 years ago, before the creation of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Scott PruittHe has written acclaimed books on the Amazon, global warming, and the changing Arctic. His multimedia work on the Web has also been widely lauded, particularly his New York Times blog, Dot Earth. He is the first science reporter to win a John Chancellor Award for sustained excellence in journalism.

Now following his prize-winning 21-year stint at The New York Times, Revkin has taken a new position at National Geographic Society as the Strategic Adviser for Environmental and Science Journalism to help expand grants and support for journalism worldwide, focusing on our human journey on this fast-changing planet. And he is out with a new book, WEATHER: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY FROM CLOUD ATLASES TO CLIMATE CHANGE co-written with his wife Lisa Mechaley in which he presents an intriguing illustrated history of humanity’s evolving relationship with Earth’s dynamic climate system and the wondrous weather it generates.

Oh, and in his spare moments, he is a performing songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who occasionally accompanied the late Pete Seeger at regional shows and plays in a folk-blues band, Uncle Wade.

Scott Pruitt, the EPA, global warning, weather and climate change, and, of course, Halli’s commentary this week on TALKish with Halli Casser-Jayne. For more information visit  Halli Casser-Jayne dot com

Hi my friends,

Wow, it has been some week here on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. We’re nearing the end of the month, and things always get hectic as we finalize our editorial calender for the following month. Wait until you hear some of the great shows we have lined up for you.

But sticking to this month, I ask you was that a rootin’ tootin’ show on GUNS this past Wednesday or what?  We had a fabulous line-up of guests that included our old friend author Brad Parks, author and pundit Cliff Schecter, Omar Samaha, Legislative Assistant and grassroots Coordinator with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and whose sister Reema was killed in the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007, and Margie Omero, a public opinion pollster. I don’t have to tell you what a controversial subject gun legislation is. You can rest-assured that The Halli Casser-Jayne Show will always bring you the best in conversation no matter how divisive the subject. I hope you’ll take the time to listen to the entire show. You can listen on the website, but you can also download the show from the mobile site m.blogtalkradio.com, or from iTunes, where the download is free.

And now for your weekend reading pleasure here are some of the stories I’m going to be checking out myself .

Have a great one, everyone!

FUEL FOR MORNING THOUGHT…

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

Hi my friends!

It’s Friday? Really? How did that happen? I guess the old adage time flies when you’re having a good time is true. And a good time we had this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show with a show that proved that we are, indeed, Talk Radio For Fine Minds. We delved into The REAL Greatest Generation in a discussion of Washington, Jefferson and Lafayette with historians from Mt. Vernon and Monticello, and journalist and author of Lafayette: The Ideal General, Marc Leepson.  While I know to some history can be dry, I think you’ll be presently surprised by the personality-filled conversation. You can listen here, but all of our shows, including this one are available FREE to download from iTunes.

But back to it’s Friday, and as we always do on Friday, here are some links to good reading for your weekend fare.

Have a fun-filled weekend, all!
