Elizabeth Brown Gets Involved

Charlotte Dennett Follows the Pipelines


Recorded June 14, 2024: Today Geri interviewed Charlotte Dennett, author of Follow the Pipelines:

In Follow the Pipelines, investigative journalist Charlotte Dennett digs into her father’s postwar counterintelligence work, which pitted him against America’s wartime allies—the British, French, and Russians—in a covert battle for geopolitical and economic influence in the Middle East. Through stories and maps, she reveals how feverish competition among superpower intelligence networks, military, and Big Oil interests have fueled indiscriminate attacks, misguided foreign policy, and targeted killings that continue to this day.

The book delivers an irrefutable indictment of these devastating forces and demonstrates how the brutal violence they incite has shaped the Middle East and birthed an era of endless conflict.

Follow the Pipelines also brings new questions to the fore:

  • To what lengths has the United States negotiated with the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and ISIS to secure Big Oil’s holdings in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Yemen?
  • Was the Pentagon’s goal of defeating ISIS a fraudulent pretext for America’s occupation of Syrian eastern provinces and a land grab for oil?
  • Did the infamous double agent Kim Philby, who worked for the British while secretly spying for the Russians, have anything to do with Dennett’s death?
  • Why have the US and China made North Africa the next major battleground in the Great Game for Oil?

Food Journeys with Louise Turner

“We’ve got the carbon thing mixed up… now people are realizing, and farmers are realizing that…  So there is a lot of learning and teaching going on, and that gives me hope, for sure, just knowing how wonderful it is when people can be themselves and be able to teach, as well as listen, and have leaders who know what’s going on.  It’s a big deal.”

Annette Smith:

Decades of Experience Helping Her Neighbors Protect The Environment

The thing I’ve learned through 17 years of working with Vermonters is to never underestimate Vermonters.”

-Annette Smith, Executive Director of Vermonters for a Clean Environment, Vermonter of the Year 2017

May 19th, 2024:  Electromagnetic Frequency Pollution Deep Dive, PART THREE

Education and awareness are the key ingredients in our ability to defend our rights.  So are caring neighbors such as Annette.

Annette has spent decades helping Vermonters navigate the regulatory system in defense of their local environment.  She’s taken on industries such as large-scale energy and telecommunications companies.  Her experience is priceless when it comes to navigating the ever-evolving regulatory and legislative processes.  For example, Vermonters for a Clean Environment has been helping neighbors in the WMRW listening area of Warren and Waitsfield resist tower projects, and was instrumental in winning Vermonters the right to opt-out of Smart Meters on our homes.

We spent the hour talking about efforts in Vermont to address Electro-Magnetic Frequency pollution as part of a month-long series on the subject.  There is no better person to give us an update on the situation as it currently stands in our state.  Listen to the interview to learn what is happening on state, local and, most importantly, grassroots levels.




Is the Legislature Listening?

May 12, 2024:  Electromagnetic Frequency Pollution Deep Dive, PART TWO

Today’s episode takes us to the New Hampshire AND Vermont Statehouses:

The first half of today’s show continues to explore the legal and health implications of expanded 5G Electro-magnetic Frequency pollution, this time from a legislative perspective.  Based on a report by the New Hampshire General Court, House Bill 1487 was introduced in January in the New Hampshire legislature.  It proposed three steps to address the effects of EMF.  We will go there together to hear what New Hampshire’s House Science, Technology and Energy committee has to say about the bill and the reasons for and against passing it into law.

For the second half of the show we travel to Montpelier, Vermont to hear what the citizens have to say about the tidal wave of legislation that is passing through the legislature in recent years.  On May 17th the Tap Trees Not Vermonters Rally brought together Vermonters from across the spectrum with one thing in common: they do not feel their representatives are listening.  Listen to what your neighbors had to say at the press conference in Montpelier:
