In this episode I replay interviews from the summer of 2012 on the theme of the future. James Howard Kunstler and John Michael Greer were my guests when my show was called Religion For Life. We learned about Peak Oil, economic contraction, the “apocalypse meme” and getting serious about the way we live. Is what these thinkers said nine years ago manifesting today? You decide.

Revisiting a broadcast from September 2018, Graeme MacQueen and Elizabeth Woodworth introduce the work of the 9/11 Consensus Panel. Here is the information from when the program first aired:
This is the first of a four-part series on the new book released by the 9/11 Consensus Panel, 9/11 Unmasked: An International Review Panel Investigation.
From the book’s back cover:
“9/11 Unmasked is the result of a six-year investigation by an international review panel, which has provided 51 points illustrating the problematic status of all the major claims in the official account of the 9/11 attacks, some of which are obviously false. Most dramatically, the official account of the destruction of the Twin Towers and World Trade Center 7 could not possibly be true, unless the laws of physics were suspended that day. But other claims made by the official account including the claims that the 9/11 planes were taken over by al-Qaeda hijackers, that one of those hijackers flew his plane into the Pentagon, and that passengers on the planes telephoned people on the ground are also demonstrably false.
The book reports only points about which the panel reached consensus by using the best-evidence consensus model employed in medical research. The panel is composed of experts about 9/11 from many disciplines, including physics, chemistry, structural engineering, aeronautical engineering, and jurisprudence.”
In this first episode, Elizabeth Woodworth and Graeme MacQueen discuss
- the purpose, goal, and methodology of the 9/11 Consensus Panel,
- evidence of foreknowledge regarding the collapse of WTC 7,
- evidence of witness testimony of explosions in the World Trade Center Towers 1 and 2,
- evidence regarding steel recovered from WTC 7,
- photographic evidence regarding hijackers,
- and evidence of military drills on 9/11.
Elizabeth Woodworth is a researcher and writer on both 9/11 and climate change science and activism. She co-founded the 9/11 Consensus Panel in 2011 with Dr. David Ray Griffin, with whom she has co-authored two books, Unprecedented Climate Mobilization, and 9/11 Unmasked: An International Review Panel Investigation. Elizabeth was head librarian for the British Columbia Ministry of Health from 1978-2002. She also co-wrote with Peter Carter, Unprecedented Crime: Climate Science Denial and Game-Changers for Survival. Dr. Carter was on Progressive Spirit in June 2018.
Dr. Graeme MacQueen received his Ph.D. in Buddhist Studies from Harvard University and became founding Director of the Centre for Peace Studies at McMaster University in Canada. Since his retirement he has carried out research on the War on Terror. In addition to his work on the 9/11 Consensus Panel he has been a co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies and an organizer of the 2011 Toronto Hearings on 9/11.
