The Digital Divide is off today. Instead we'll hear Radio Ecoshock on Climate: Misunderstood Impacts 

New climate science shows some parts of the world will heat more than dangerous two degrees as soon as 2030. The Arctic has already heated more than that.

This means we can't burn as much fossil fuels as we've been told. Plus, the changes are not a gradual warming, but unstable weather and deadly heat waves. From Australia, Dr. Andy J. Pitman, co-author of a new study explains.

Hearts On Fire

In this world of evil and hatred one rarely gets the occassion to celebrate and honor the emotion called love. Valentine's Day was originally a commemoration of the Christian Saint Valentinus, but later on the concept gained a more romantic notion. It was during this time that Valentine's day was associated with courtly love that flourished all over Europe. Valentine's Day customs developed in early modern Britain and spread throughout America in the 19th century. 

Tune in Saturday my friend Matt will be here with his vinyl collection and we will celebrate St. Valentine's day Swing & Country style with songs of heartache and heartbrake.

Counselor Jane DeForest speaks with host Paul O'Brien
Over half of marriages end in divorce. Why? While there are many factors in today's complex society and busy lifestyle, this is not a death sentence for your marriage or relationship. The good news is love is still alive and well, and can be cultivated and grown abundantly. A deeply committed relationship is where each partner is part of a whole that functions with security and respect, which also allows enough room for growth, creativity and passion. Through her work as an intuitive Jane DeForest helps analyze the “energy dynamic” between couples, then she helps each to shift their thinking and approach toward the marriage and their partner.

Beyond the Bundys: The Far Right and the Future of Conservation

Mon, 02/15/2016 - 10:15am - 11:00am
Short Description: 
The crusaders in suits who are the real threat to public lands like the Malheur Bird Sanctuary
Now that the last of the Malheur Marauders have been taken into custody, it's a good time to examine the bigger picture. The standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge is really just the extremist edge of a growing anti-conservation crusade bent on dismantling crucial environmental protections and abolishing most federal land. The crusade involves more menacing figures than the disgruntled ranchers terrorized Harney County.

On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with environmental writer Jimmy Tobias about the crusaders in suits—the senators, the oil lobbyists, the right-wing legislators—who are the real threat to America's public lands.

Incarceration often prevents, families, friends and lovers from spending Valentine's Day together so Prison Pipeline hosts wanted to create a way to use the KBOO airwaves to connect people through messages of love. On the day after Valentine's Day Prison Pipeline hosts will be having a special program featuring Valentine's messages we receive from people in prison and their loved ones on the outside. Send your short Valentine's Day message to [email protected] or by mail, addressed to "Prison Pipeline Collective" at 20 SE 8th Ave, Portland, OR 97214. Then tune in and let your loved one know to tune in at 6:30pm on February 15th, 2016 to hear your messages read live on air.
