BowlersDesk.com Political Podcast with Greenpeace on board the Rainbow Warrior

Listen above or on iTunes HERE

BowlersDesk.com Political Podcast with me Matthew Bowler and San Diego’s Political Professor Ric Epps

This time we are on board the official Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior II.

The original was blown up by the French equivalent to the CIA. So Greenpeace just built another one. This one has a very interesting and avant garde design. The ship has a traditional engine, an electric engine, and two sails. However the sails don’t fly from a traditional mast. Greenpeace is hopping the new design they’re using will work as a proof of concept showing cargo ship builders that using sails are viable for cargo vessels. It’s a very cool and interesting design defiantly worth a serious look.

We talked to her Captain Capitan Joel Stewart

And Green Pease Oceans Campaigner Casson Trenor.

It was a fascinating hour.

We talked about the Greenpeace ship that was seized by the Russian military and the 30 activists that were arrested. We talked about one ironic aspect to global warming and Arctic oil drilling. We talked about Bumble Bee Tuna and read parts of a letter from the San Diego Bumble Bee CEO.

Of course I know you’ve got an opinion and your dyeing to share it.
