New PBS dedicates the PM to ... Science + "SIlent Spring" -vs- the counter-propaganda of ∑ Corporations
April 3, 1963: PBS-Reports features Sevareid's interview with [a dying..] Carson: On the Topic. She died on April 14, 1964. Prematurely, of cancer: in those days the Medico was expected to discuss Your Condition with the Man of the House [she had none] so he just didn't Tell Her that the last removed lump WAS malignant. Many months wasted, etc. April 14 1964.

Tonight's local PBS Schedule:

8:00 pm
Civilizations [#108]
The Cult of Progress
Examine the rise and fall of "progress" as an ideology, and see how the "civilizing" project that arose from Enlightenment ideas was fraught with contradictions that troubled European artists in different ways.
duration 56:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

9:00 pm
Rachel Carson: American Experience [#2809]
Meet the scientist whose groundbreaking writings revolutionized our relationship to the natural world. Mary-Louise Parker is the voice of Rachel Carson in this moving and intimate portrait.
duration 1:55:06 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

11:00 pm
Trust Docs [#1010H]
Green at What Price?
In the name of environmental restoration, the Ugandan government is expanding the country's forest reserves in order to sell into the global carbon credit market. But this program comes at a high human cost as the state is displacing long established villages, forcing people to relocate, and jailing those opposing the program.
duration 20:04 STEREO TVG

11:30 pm [somewhat off-topic but surely relevant re the Confounding Hubris of the Species?]
Trust Docs [#1011]
One Man, One City, Three Evictions
Rio de Janeiro has experienced several waves of development in the past century. For Altair Guimaraes the changes have affected him directly. Brought up in a favela, he has been evicted three times as a result of Rio's developments. As Brazil tries to gain global recognition and increase tourism, locals like Altair are forced to relocate despite property titles. Now, their struggles are becoming a symbol of a global phenomenon.
duration 21:15 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

I presume that most of these programs can be found via the usual methods; for those of us who recall the publication date of Silent Spring--early 1962--especially all of us who ever 'Do Science': We can today see how the [wash/rinse/repeat Cycle] of Fake-rebuttals, (in this time: add rampant misogyny to boot) have persisted unto 2018. Initially "radioactive fallout =="the attempted shaming By Scientists of the **scientist who cautioned about effects of even very-low-levels within the body),

** 1)Think lo-level scientist's name sounds like 'Wahl"/it will come to me; I recall reading his paper on a train to Amsterdam--amidst all the anti- propaganda. And then there's
2) Boltzmann's Atom courtesy of A. Scott way-back re the Establishmentarians' view of
"atoms.. Atoms!? ... ... We don't gots to buy no steenkin ATOMS!!"

Anyway.. it's clear that the cupidity (the Raison d'Etre of any-hypenated-form of 'Capitalism')... Always plays out First, well ahead of any next ..nascent.. sheepish.. kinda return to --> that vaunted Search for Truthiness, implicit amongst all wearers of White Lab Coats (especially the ones with Epaulets?)

So Now it's time for The 2018 LIst of lists, eh? (Make yer own.)
Luck to all, forever against the Troglodytes. (These wear many hats but rarely lab-coats. I've noticed.)
New Speaking of lists ...
See Open Forum. (Wish we could branch replies.)
