Alan Northcutt Reports On His Hour On The Lynn Wooley Radio Show

The following is a report by Alan Northcutt on his experience being interviewed on the radio by conservative Temple radio talk show host Lynn Wolley:


On March 10th I survived the hour-long conservative talk show with Lynn Woolley (left) about climate change. Overall Lynn is a friendly guy and was pretty fair, never cutting my microphone.  I did feel very rushed at times and had to insist on making my point.
 
I mostly responded to various climate denier-type questions, such as sunspots, no climate change effects yet (!!), etc.  I think I responded pretty effectively to these questions.  We also took phone calls on this live program.

I actually have sympathy for the denier position, because I understand the power the climate denier industry has had over the last 30 years in spreading misinformation. Also, climate science is a relatively complex field and I think difficult for many non-scientists. 

I suggested that I would later answer emails he received to further respond to the audience questions on the topic.

We parted amiably and agreed that we will do this again, as I think it is useful.

His website does not archive the programs. Therefore, I am trying to obtain a copy of the hour and will attempt to post it later.

A PLASTIC OCEAN

Tuesday, March 21st

703 N. Valley Mills Dr.
Waco
6 PM Business & Buffet
6:30 Film & Discussion

Runtime 102 Minutes

Waco Friends of Peace/Climate presents the outstanding documentary film A Plastic Ocean.
  
A Plastic Ocean is a feature-length adventure documentary that brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle. We thought we could use plastic once and throw it away with negligible impact to humans and animals. That turns out to be untrue.

In A Plastic Ocean, an international team of adventurers, researchers, and Ocean ambassadors go on a mission around the globe to uncover the shocking truth about what is truly lurking beneath the surface of our seemingly pristine Ocean. 


The results will astound viewers–just as it did our adventurers–who captured never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for human health.
