Planet Philadelphia 4:00 Nov 20: Thought-provoking interview with Rev Mitchell C. Hescox, President Print E-mail
Wednesday, 11 November 2015

Listen to a thought-provoking interview with Rev Mitchell C. Hescox, President/CEO of the Evangelical Environmental Network on how to save us all from climate change on Planet Philadelphia, Friday, November 20th at 4:00 on our favorite radio station - Gtown Radio.

Kay Wood will talk with Reverend Hescox - who spent 14 years in the coal industry - about how he’s has been talking to many people around the globe, in his congregation, and Congress, about the moral and economic case for swift climate change action. He was at the Whitehouse for the announcement of the Pope Francis’s Climate Change Encyclical.

Now he’s speaking to Planet Philadelphia listeners about how we must come together to act on climate change and not let our differences on other issues keep us from acting on this urgent threat to our children’s future.

Tune in to hear what Reverend Hescox has to say along with much other interesting information on Planet Philadelphia, Gtown Radio, the sound of Germantown, hosted and produced by Kay Wood. Planet Philadelphia streams live 4:00 to 5:00 pm here on Gtown Radio 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month.

Podcasts of live streaming shows will be available the day after they broadcast on Gtown Radio and on planetphila.com. Listener Comment Line: (484)278-1846 | @planetphila | @gtownradio,

September blew away the margin for Earth's warmest month on record.

Study finds the warmer it gets, the more world economy hurts.
By Seth Borenstein AP Oct 22 - With each upward degree, global warming will singe the economies of three-quarters of the world's nations and widen the north-south gap between rich and poor countries, according to a new economic and science study. http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory/study-finds-warmer-world-economy-hurts-34630229

Americans have never been so sure about climate change—even Republicans.
By Tom Randall Bloomberg Business Oct 23 - Maybe it's the pope. Or the freakish year in extreme climate records. It might even be explained by the U.N. climate talks and the bright lights of the presidential election cycle. Whatever the cause, U.S. views on climate change are shifting—fast...

Fortune.com - Why Japan wants to transform into a 'hydrogen society' -David Z. Morris  Oct 21, 2015
Japan is making a big bet on an alternative fuel for the future—but will it pay off?
http://fortune.com/2015/10/21/japan-hydrogen-fuel/
 
According to the Council On Foreign Relations – High Hopes for Hydrogen; Fuel Cells and the Future of Energy by Dr. Matthew Mench  - Producing hydrogen now costs less and emits less carbon than ever before. In part, that is the result of the United States’ newfound abundance of natural gas [6], the source of most of the hydrogen produced. But it is also the result of technological improvements in the process of “reforming” natural gas into hydrogen. It now costs around as much to produce a gallon of gasoline as it does to produce the energy-equivalent amount of hydrogen with natural gas. Meanwhile, another method of producing hydrogen—electrolysis, which uses electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen—has seen major cost reductions as well. What makes electrolysis particularly attractive is that when powered by renewable sources such as wind and solar power, it directly emits zero carbon...
