Last Of Her Kind Review: Captain Planet And The Planeteers - Free Markets Green Earth Vs 007
In today's episode Ben & I review Last Of Her Kind, episode 7 of season one of Captain Planet & The Planeteers. The episode pits the team against evil poacher Looten Plunder who is killing off elephants in Africa for their Ivory. Ben and I use the episode as a springboard to discuss why poaching is so lucrative and why efforts to solve it generally exacerbate the issue. Dig into yet another piece of this propaganda machine with us. Links For More On The Last Of Her Kind Episode @ Captain Planet Wiki Episode @ IMDB Episodes @ Wikipedia

The Truth About Ugly Produce - Free Markets Green Earth 062
In today's episode Nicky P and Ben discuss some old tweets they came across from our long time foil, Dr. Sarah Taber, enlightening people on the truth about ugly produce. If you've been anywhere on the internet the past few years you've undoubtedly been inundated with advertisements for different company's offering to help save the ugly produce from ruin. While we don't always see eye to eye with Taber she's a wealth of knowledge on this topic and actually made us better capitalists going through her explanations.

GMOs & Organic Agriculture: Another Case Of Superior Technology? - Free Markets Green Earth 061
In today's episode Ben & I discuss an article he found questioning the ability of “organic farming” to meet the needs of growing global populations. The article seemed like a thinly guised propaganda piece dedicated to GMO apologetics to me, but I’d be remiss in saying there was little value in questioning my own suppositions. The conversation gets a little messy but we make some prescriptions we personally think make more sense than throwing all our chickens into one basket. We need to remember technology isn’t a cure-all but tradition can be misguided as well. https://geneticliteracyproject.org/2020/08/26/viewpoint-farm-to-fork-failure-how-europes-obsession-with-organic-farming-undermines-global-sustainable-farming-movement/

The Conqueror Review: Captain Planet And The Planeteers: Free Markets Green Earth Vs 006
In today's episode Ben & I review The Conqueror, episode six of Captain Planet and the Planeteers. I’m not sure that either of us could really place a message for the episode. The nearest we could come up with was “people suck.” This is a very on brand sentiment for the people who tend to populate the circles actually talking about the environment, but it seems disingenuous to believe that human progress and technology are the worst we have to offer. As per always we treat the show with as much irreverence as a brainwashing tool from your childhood deserves. Enjoy!

Deadly Ransom: Captain Planet Review - Free Markets Green Earth Vs 005
In today's episode Ben & I talk about Deadly Ransom, episode five of Captain Planet and the Planeteers. The episode centers around a plot by villains Duke Nukem & Dr Blight to take Captain Planet hostage in an effort to coerce the Planeteers to bring them nuclear waste. The initial hostage taking goes off without a hitch but the Planeteers ultimately foil the plot. How much of what the show teaches about nuclear energy and waste is nonsense? Tune in and find out.

Elizabeth Melton For Public Service Commissioner: Free Markets Green Earth 059
This week on Free Markets, Green Earth, Nicky P and The Liberty Hippie are joined by Elizabeth Melton a long time liberty lover from Georgia. Elizabeth was nominated by the Georgia LP to run for Public Service Commissioner in the 2020 election. What is a PSC? What do they do? All we knew going into the interview was it had something to do with utilities. You know, those government imposed monopolies we are all forced to take part in. Utilities are one of the few places it's hard to even opt out thanks to zoning regulations. Is Elizabeth going to be able to help a public already reeling from the coove? What are her feelings on the EPA? Find out both with a listen. Links: https://melton4georgia.com/ https://nickpecone.com/fmge027

Free Markets Green Earth 036: Donnie Gebert On A Direct Republic To Save The Environment & More

Free Markets Green Earth 017: Starts With Virtue Signals
In today's episode we start with some hilarious grand gesture virtue signals. I" not sure how much Rhianna's Diamond Ball remarks or Timberlands new eco line really meet the standard for environmental activism but you need to know we're on board with the agenda. From there we take a little jaunt to watch as president Trump wields the EPA like a club to force San Fransisco to do something about their homeless problem. You know that EPA that's supposed to be the unbiased referee in the game? We know that's bullshit but we need to help more people see it. Article 1 - Article 2 - Article 3 - Article 4 If this isn't enough craziness we take longer look at the relaxing of CAFE standards by Trump while California defiantly makes a claim for states right...I know ridiculous but lets hope it catches on. If that wasn't enough we get a great example of cronyism as the manufacturers beg for the harsher admission standards across the board because we all know how caring they are...or just hate the idea of not being protected from competition by labyrinthine compliance mandates of every stripe. If you care to hear a much smarter energy expert on the topic might i recommend Episode 205 of Contra Krugman. Article 1 - Article 2 - Article 3 - Article 4 - Article 5 - Article 6 - Article 7 - Article 8 I'm glad California hasn't over-run the entire country yet is what this episode is getting at.

An activist who refuses to to talk to people who disagree with her ideas. Which makes the idea of changing minds impossible. This NPR Article sums up some of the insane ideas she is championing and rallying the youth of the world behind. The really frustrating part is that if you had the gall to question the fallacious and exaggerate claims she makes, you're forced to deal with "you hate kids, women and the differently abled (she has aspberghers they claim.)"

Not a commie, must be sexist. Article Here in NYC mayor Deblasio is saying it’s cool to skip school to protest for action on climate change. Why are we listening to a generation with no foundation in economics or even life experience in general? Article In general the level of Fear our children are living under is terrifying. The Washington Post seems to have evidence that a majority of students are generally afraid the world is ending and at least 1 in 4 of them are actively engaging in activism.

Free Markets Green Earth 015: Our Lungs Are Full Of Meat?
In today's episode we take a look at the conversation they were trying to force us to have in regards to the fires in the Amazon in Brazil. What does meat have to do with this? As with so many environmental issues big agribusiness absolutely factors in. They come up with many suggestions to combat the issue. Some suggest veganism, some suggest eating bugs, some suggest eating our dead...wait what? This was an actual discussion scientists are having. Personally I think there are real conversations to be had in regards to what is happening with the Amazon, biodiversity being a huge concern I have. Subsidization and government interference are some of the biggest drivers of moves toward mono-crops and factory farming. Instead we get lies trying to paint this year as being worse than most as far as these fires go instead of barely out of the bottom third. This doesn't even address why the fires happen and to what end. I'm not personally about making food more difficult for poor modernizing nations. The coverage seemed to disappear immediately after the democratic town hall suggested trillions of dollars of new spending that we don't have to drastically rework society with a model that has been proven over and over again to fail. Here's a Washington Post article that has a bunch of information on the issue. Check It Out. If there's a topic you want to hear more about drop us a line and let us know.

This week the Liberty Hippie and Nicky P. take a look at Over the Hedge, a film from 2006 that only has a handful of human characters, but presents them with near zero redeeming qualities.

Free Markets Green Earth 005: **** New York Just A Bit More
This week on Free Markets, Green Earth, Nicky P. and the Liberty Hippie find themselves entangled in more legislative non-sense from the fine state of New York, and they're not talking about an individuals $500k water bill, or plastic bag bans. This time the two discuss New York's proposed farm bill that has been lingering in Albany for almost fifteen years, but thanks to State government all falling to one side, it's likely that the state of New York will no longer allow individual farm workers to negotiate their own work conditions. The new bill will require farmers to pay workers overtime, introducing a slew of problems for both workers and farm owners.
