TMI 07/02/2021 – Bipartisanship is Ruining the Climate, Firsthand Report on 2021 Ohio Trump Rally, New Study Shows TX Grid Failure is DESPITE Renewable Energy, not FROM It

On this week’s TMI, we discuss how bipartisanship is being held up as more important than continuing to work on mitigating the disastrous effects of the climate crisis. We also air a first-hand report on the 2021 Trump rally in Lorain County, Ohio, and finally we examine a new study that illustrates how the collapse of Texas’ power grid was DESPITE the use of renewable energy types like solar and wind, not, as the right-wing media tried to claim, BECAUSE of them. All this and much more on TMI for Friday, July 2, 2021 – listen in for YOUR Cure for the Common Media!

TMI 02/19/2021 – Fossil Fuels’ Failure in the TX Freeze, Cities Underreport Carbon Footprints, NYC Surveillance, Diagnosing You Under Your Skin

When Texas suffered catastrophic freezing, cutting power to much of the state, right wing media (followed all-too-predictably by mainstream sources) blamed the wind turbines that had locked up in the cold as being the reason why people were suffering and dying. But wind turbines function in much harsher cold than Texas offered just fine, pointing to a problem in cheaping out on their maintenance, and deeper infrastructural issues in the fossil fuel pumps that failed in much greater abundance there.

Then, we discuss how many cities throughout the USA are, intentionally or not, notably underreporting the impact they are having on the environment, and what needs to happen to correct this. Also, we touch on the overwhelming surveillance apparatus that the most populous city in America has built – is it worth it? Finally, we tell you about new medical techniques that are being developed to use the layer just under your skin to diagnose you with potentially greater accuracy and with far less invasiveness than current practices.
