What are individual states doing to reduce reliance on fossil fuels by turning to renewable resources like the wind and the sun?


As we see in this episode of the Lean to the Left podcast with energy scientist Jack Kerfoot, that North Carolina and Virginia are making remarkable progress, while Florida and West Virginia continue to pretend climate change is a hoax, and Kentucky is making some headway but has a long, long way to go to make climate change progress.

This is the fourth of five podcasts that explore these questions in various regions of the country. Episode one, covering four Northeastern states, the second episode, analyzing five Midwestern states, and the third show, examining five Southwestern states, are now streaming; the fifth episode, focusing on several western states, will stream soon. "The clock is ticking," warns Kerfoot, a scientist, energy expert and author of the book "Fueling America an Insider's Journey."


Do You Care About Justice?


Attorney/author Mark M. Bello and writer/commentator Bob Gatty co-host Justice Counts, a podcast that goes beyond the law to what matters to people, what's fair, what's right, what's justice.

"If you look up "justice" in the dictionary," Mark says, "you'll find something like 'just or fair behavior or treatment.' So justice is not just a legal term, it's a broader term and in a broader sense, it's giving people what they deserve."

Our guests are those skilled in the law as well as people who seek justice, in one of its many forms in our daily lives. The episodes are filled with insight, info, and no small amount of humor.

Episodes stream bi-weekly every other Monday on all major podcast platforms.

Here's the latest episode.
