Episode 94 – Iowa State Senator Rob Hoog

Once a purple swing-state, Iowa has become an official red state, following the  dismal path of Wisconsin and other regressive governments funded by the Kochs and other plutocrats.

Rob Hogg, Iowa state senator from Cedar Rapids and the author of America’s Climate Century, talks frankly about dealing with backward government.

Brief bio: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rob_Hogg or http://www.robhogg.org/

FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/rob.hogg.56

He is active with IowaClimateAdvocates.org.

His book, America’s Climate Century: What Climate Change Means for America in the 21st Century and What Americans Can Do About It he calls on Americans to make the fight against climate change our new national purpose. Climate change is the defining historical issue of the 21st Century. After the heat and drought of 2012, Hurricane Sandy, and all of the other recent climate disasters, it is time for America to take climate action.

Having represented Cedar Rapids during an unprecedented flood that caused billions in damage in 2008, Senator Hogg brings a dose of reality to the issue of climate change. What happens this century — ever-worsening climate disasters or effective action to fight climate change — depends on the knowledge and action of every American.

With a fresh, personal, accessible and straight-talking approach, this one book explains why the 21st Century is America’s climate century. In 120 pages, it succinctly explains the science, the consequences, and the solutions of climate change, and helps Americans understand why we need to lead the world in the effort to safeguard our people, our property and our future from the dangers of climate change.

The book is only $10 from local, independent bookstores or Amazon (paper or Kindle).

Call your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative to support Citizens Climate Lobby’s [CCL] “carbon fee and dividend” proposal and other action to address climate change.

Let’s unite our country for the climate action we so urgently need. Let Congress know we can have a healthy, prosperous, and sustainable future with clean energy and other climate change solutions.

It’s OK to call all U.S. Representatives in your state. They are likely to respond to citizens in their state, regardless of address, because district lines change and because U.S. Representatives often become candidates for statewide office.

Reach out to invite others in your state to join this effort. You can invite your friends and share this Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/757936277719571/

Episode 94 – Iowa State Senator Rob Hoog

Once a purple swing-state, Iowa has become an official red state, following the  dismal path of Wisconsin and other regressive governments funded by the Kochs and other plutocrats.

Rob Hogg, Iowa state senator from Cedar Rapids and the author of America’s Climate Century, talks frankly about dealing with backward government.

Read more about his Summer of Citizenship and its Picnic for the People kick-off at https://www.facebook.com/events/1886415901637203/

Iowa legislature: https://www.legis.iowa.gov/legislators/legislator?ga=87&personID=6257

Brief bio: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rob_Hogg or http://www.robhogg.org/

FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/rob.hogg.56

Call your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative to support Citizens Climate Lobby’s [CCL] “carbon fee and dividend” proposal and other action to address climate change.

Let’s unite our country for the climate action we so urgently need. Let Congress know we can have a healthy, prosperous, and sustainable future with clean energy and other climate change solutions.

It’s okay to call all U.S. Representatives in your state. They are likely to respond to citizens in their state, regardless of address, because district lines change and because U.S. Representatives often become candidates for statewide office.

The Facebook link below has a place to record your calls so that CCL can track how many calls are made. These calls are to support CCL’s proposal before the organization’s national conference and lobby days in Washington, D.C., June 11 to June 13.

Reach out to invite others in your state to join this effort. You can invite your friends and share this Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/757936277719571/

In the Iowa Senate since 2007, Rob Hogg is serving as Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, after two terms in the Iowa House.

He and his wife, Kate, live in Cedar Rapids with their three children. He is active with IowaClimateAdvocates.org.

His book, America’s Climate Century: What Climate Change Means for America in the 21st Century and What Americans Can Do About It he calls on Americans to make the fight against climate change our new national purpose. Climate change is the defining historical issue of the 21st Century. After the heat and drought of 2012, Hurricane Sandy, and all of the other recent climate disasters, it is time for America to take climate action.

Having represented Cedar Rapids during an unprecedented flood that caused billions in damage in 2008, Senator Hogg brings a dose of reality to the issue of climate change. What happens this century — ever-worsening climate disasters or effective action to fight climate change — depends on the knowledge and action of every American.

With a fresh, personal, accessible and straight-talking approach, this one book explains why the 21st Century is America’s climate century. In 120 pages, it succinctly explains the science, the consequences, and the solutions of climate change, and helps Americans understand why we need to lead the world in the effort to safeguard our people, our property and our future from the dangers of climate change.

The book is only $10 from local, independent bookstores or Amazon (paper or Kindle).

Adrienne seems to be the ideal coordinator of a group of Minimalists. TheMinimalists.com, Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus, help over 20 million people live meaningful lives with less through their website, books, podcast, tours, groups and documentary. They say, “Minimalists don’t focus on having less, less, less; rather, we focus on making room for more: more time, more passion, more experiences, more growth, more contribution, more contentment. More freedom. Clearing the clutter from life’s path helps us make that room. Minimalism is the thing that gets us past the things so we can make room for life’s important things—which actually aren’t things at all.”

Writer Joshua Becker of BecomingMinimalist.com inspires others to live more by owning less. Bestselling author of The More of Less, he has hundreds of thousands of regular readers of his blog. Becoming Minimalist™ is designed to inspire others to pursue their greatest passions by owning fewer possessions. He leads online courses on uncluttering and he stresses philanthropy.

Susan’s Responses

WHY TRUMP?: Although this wasn’t a scientific study, the primary reasons most people gave are below. Since I didn’t want this to be a debate, the responses I would have liked to make (but didn’t) are in italics.

  1. CHANGE – Washington is corrupt. Congress can’t get anything done. (Our government also gets a lot right, like the EPA protecting our environment.)
  2. Trump is not a career politician. – This is related to #1 because many felt the reason Congress can’t get anything done was that they were beholden to lobbyists with money to get re-elected.
  3. Over-regulation – Many were entrepreneurs and government regulation made it harder for them to do business. (Regulation also protects us from dishonest or harmful practices.)
  4. Abortion – “I didn’t vote for Trump, I voted for the Supreme Court that would overturn Roe v Wade.” (The law does not force anyone to get an abortion. Better solutions are prevention, adoption, and/or helping women with societal support to raise a child after birth.)
  5. Big government keeps people lazy. – “Welfare enables folks to just sit around on the couch, watch TV, and drink beer.” (I was once a welfare worker. It’s not this simple. Supporting strong family life, education, mental health services, etc. are the building blocks of a strong society. Some will always fall through the cracks. Are we there to give them a leg up or just to judge.)
  6. Why not! All had serious reservations about Trump as a person, but they overlooked his nasty personal life because:
    *He was a successful businessman who would take action. (He also had some bankruptcies.)
    *He was an outsider who could shake things up (“drain the swamp”) (Many of his appointments have little experience for their job and often have ties to a different exclusive swamp.)
    *Our system’s checks and balances would rein him in. (With both houses of Congress supporting him, extremely conservative appointments, and use of executive orders, where are the checks and balances?)

Susan’s Responses

WHY TRUMP?: Although this wasn’t a scientific study, the primary reasons most people gave are below. Since I didn’t want this to be a debate, the responses I would have liked to make (but didn’t) are in italics.

  1. CHANGE – Washington is corrupt. Congress can’t get anything done. (Our government also gets a lot right, like the EPA protecting our environment.)
  2. Trump is not a career politician. – This is related to #1 because many felt the reason Congress can’t get anything done was that they were beholden to lobbyists with money to get re-elected.
  3. Over-regulation – Many were entrepreneurs and government regulation made it harder for them to do business. (Regulation also protects us from dishonest or harmful practices.)
  4. Abortion – “I didn’t vote for Trump, I voted for the Supreme Court that would overturn Roe v Wade.” (The law does not force anyone to get an abortion. Better solutions are prevention, adoption, and/or helping women with societal support to raise a child after birth.)
  5. Big government keeps people lazy. – “Welfare enables folks to just sit around on the couch, watch TV, and drink beer.” (I was once a welfare worker. It’s not this simple. Supporting strong family life, education, mental health services, etc. are the building blocks of a strong society. Some will always fall through the cracks. Are we there to give them a leg up or just to judge.)
  6. Why not! All had serious reservations about Trump as a person, but they overlooked his nasty personal life because:
    *He was a successful businessman who would take action. (He also had some bankruptcies.)
    *He was an outsider who could shake things up (“drain the swamp”) (Many of his appointments have little experience for their job and often have ties to a different exclusive swamp.)
    *Our system’s checks and balances would rein him in. (With both houses of Congress supporting him, extremely conservative appointments, and use of executive orders, where are the checks and balances?) 

Ep. 89 :: Northwest Earth Institute 

Northwest Earth Institute is a non-profit organization that inspires people to take responsibility for Earth.

NWEI was founded in 1993 with a simple objective: to give people a framework to talk about our relationship with the planet and to share in discovering new ways to live, work, create and consume.

For over 20 years, NWEI has helped make change more possible, more social, and yes, more fun by helping people connect with their communities and take action, together.

A Different Way: Living Simply in a Complex World, the newest book from NWEI, offers us a chance to reconnect with what matters most, explore practical ways to simplify our lives, and reduce our impact.
