NO to Fracking in Florida… and elsewhere…!!!!!

Oh, yes! Perhaps not the hydraulic fracking that we have covered on this show and you have seen in the press. This is acid or chemical fracking. The oil is in the limestone, just dissolve the limestone – you get the rest…. PATTY WHITEHEAD, co-director of Preserve Our Paradise, will discuss this issue.

Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. First up the so called "fiscal cliff".

Ben Bernanke, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, who is not known for catchy phrases, coined the metaphor “fiscal cl...

Rockets fired from Gaza targeted the city of Jerusalem Friday for the first time. The increased offensive by Hamas may pave the way for Israeli forces to unleash a ground offensive in the Gaza Strip. The Israeli military has alr...
