EcoRadio KC

EcoRadio KC logo

EcoRadio KC is a magazine show, including live segments, prerecorded stories, and interviews. The show is being created by a collective of local community organizers and activists. The group chooses a theme for each show which is then produced and hosted by someone from the team. In addition, we draw upon other members of the community as well as area organizations for their knowledge, experience, and ideas.

EcoRadio KC explores our interdependence with the rest of the world, showing the connections between the ways we choose to live and the health of the whole community of life. As a result, we plan to cover a wide range of topics, including local & regenerative agriculture, energy conservation & efficiency, justice, eco-villages, alternative medicine, indigenous peoples, clean energy, local food systems, biofuels, the need for multicultural participation in social change, global warming & climate disruption, extinction, green building and chemistry, and consumerism. If you have any questions or comments about the show or would like to get involved with the team that produces it, please send an email to EcoRadioKC@gmail.com.

The Williams Corp. of Tulsa, Okla., in partnership with the Boardwalk Pipeline Partners of Houston, has proposed construction of an interstate pipeline from two separate natural gas shales in western Pennsylvania and southeast Ohio through Kentucky. If built, the pipeline would transport natural gas liquids such as ethane, butane and propane from a developing natural gas exploration market in the northeast United States to an export complex on the Gulf Coast. From there, the natural gas liquids, often called NGL, would be shipped overseas for use in the construction of plastics, synthetics and rubber.

How can we stop losing and finally begin saving the world? March 11, 2013 | 6:00 pm

The modern environmental movement has been in existence for more than 50 years, yet, despite some small successes, we're still destroying the world. We're on course to trigger runaway global warming and climate disruption and driving more than a hundred species to extinction every day - and we're running out of time. How can we stop losing and finally begin saving the world?

Transit Action Network February 11, 2013 | 6:00 pm

America's car culture must end soon if we're going to avoid catastrophic climate disruption, and it will be forced to end over time as global oil production peaks and begins to decline, driving up fuel prices. We can't expect Kansas Citians to drive a lot less until we give them safe and comfortable alternatives, though. Host John Kurmann will talk with Ron McLinden of the KC Transit Action Network about plans for streetcars running between the City Market and Crown Center, commuter rail in Jackson County, the City of Kansas City, MO's failure to fully fund bus service, and how we can make our regional transit system easier to use.

Host Richard Mabion will continue his discussion of "Dismantling Racism in the Environmental Movement in the Black Community." He will explore his experience pursuing that issue in the black communities in Detroit, St Louis, Pensacola Florida, Dallas, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

The specialty I bring to the "EcoRadio KC" show and KKFI 90.1 FM is my interest in Natural Medicine. I have been involved in all aspects of how to heal our bodies using natural and alternative methods, i.e., healing diet, herbs, energy healing, etc. I have been a "Reiki Master" for several years, practicing many types of energy healing techniques. I feel that all disease and physical imbalances begin on an "energetic" level and when dealt with on that level first, we can avoid the physical manifestation before it becomes a serious disease or illness.
