Episode Eleven — The Magical Musical Episode

Now for something different on the Climate Stew program. Grateful for all the listeners who have listened to our first 10 episodes, we decided to play three of our favorite songs that we have featured but up to now have not been able to play all the way through. Marvin Bloom helps gets things started, then we have the music followed by an inspiring segment of That Day in Climate History–a report from the future that looks at the past about all the many creative ways we have faced (and will face) crises. Pop in your headphones and have a listen to our 11th episode–the most musical climate change program you will ever hear.  Listen here or on  iTunes, and Stitcher. Please rate and review. Comments are always welcome.

Opening

Marvin: This is Climate Stew, the program that takes a serious look at Global Warming but doesn’t try to scare the snot out of you. Explore your role on a new planet with your host Peterson Toscano. (SINGING) Hey there, I’m afraid of this world, but I’m not afraid of you and I’m not afraid of you.

Peterson this is not working, where is your opening music?

Peterson: Hey Marvin, yeah, sorry about that but we are doing something different with today’s show. Thanks for starting us off. Hello and welcome to episode 11 of Climate Stew, I am Peterson Toscano .

Marvin: and this is Mavin Bloom.

Peterson: Having just passed the 10 episode mark, we decided to change things up fjust or this episode. The Climate Stew team loves good music and we include lots of great tracks that we play between segments. Sadly you only get to hear short excerpts of these songs. Today we will play for you three songs we have featured and play them in their entirety.

Marvin: Wait but are you going to include That Day In Climate History, that report from the future that looks at the past that gives us a clue of how we might deal with climate change in the present?

Peterson: Sure we can end with That Day in Climate History. But first You will hear Rocket Trip by Kognitif, a sweet longing song to go on a rocket trip to Mars because life on earth can get so hard; although I must say the Martian climate will not be very welcoming. Poldoore will rounds up the music set with their jazzy chill title cut, Lush Life. But let’s start things off with our theme music, Mark Chadwicks’ beautiful song Over and Over. Welcome to Climate Stew!

That Day in Climate History

I am Timothy Meadows, It is Saturday November 24th, 2164 and time for That Day in Climate History.

Every generation has shared moments that defined and shaped them. During the 1920s, 30s, and 40s and extraordinary generation faced regional drought, global financial collapse, and devastating world war.

During the 1980’s a plague first known as GRID—the Gay Related Immune Deficiency—with a 100% fatality rate affected many different types of people in the United States and much of Southern Africa and then worldwide. Though the US government refused to properly respond to the HIV/AIDS crisis, our ancestors acted up and forced their leaders act.

Starting in about 2015 our ancestors faced another threat, climate change. The rapid warming of our earth home had unleashed a fury of weather catastrophes, the handwriting was on the wall and humanity, along with most other species seemed doomed. As a result, the climate generation acted with determination and skill to save civilization and all we hold dear. Because of their hard work and the hardships they faced, today we enjoy stability, peace, clean air, and so much hope. If we could reach back in time, we would say, Thank You. On this day in 2164, we remember that day in climate history.
