Stan Cox, KS. Water/Sewer Whistleblower & Anon Caller
 Radio Free Kansas   Contact Contributor
One of the "10 must-read environmental books of 2010 to read in 2011" -- Mother Nature Network Kansan Stan Cox, the most widely under reported environmental writers inside Kansas writes a salvo sequel to his first book "Sick Planet" with "Losing Our Cool." We are honored to deliver his voice to the A-Info Radio programming community. Also another fellow Kansan worker turned whistle-blower who has worked in many of the "fresh and waste water" municipal facilites in Kansas spills the beans; i.e. the infrastructure is hollow and about to collapse. A listener calls in angry and talks ..... without using the word "revolution." Enjoy and feel free to use this, try to tell others about Radio Free Kansas.

"Cox provides the first-ever book-length look at the consequences on our environment and on our health of air-conditioning in this enlightening study. He documents how greenhouse emissions increased and ozone depletion skyrocketed once air conditioners became prevalent, and presents staggering statistics: the amount of electricity Americans use for powering their air conditioners alone equals the same amount the 930 million residents of Africa use for all their electricity needs. Cox reveals some surprising information as he explores air conditioning as a potential spreader of contagions ... He offers a reality check to proposed solutions that have fatal flaws (and may be worse than the problems they attempt to solve) including “dematerialization,” improved AC energy efficiency, and clean energy options. In addition, he provides a list of changes that will help: reducing indoor heat, using fans, utilizing “cool” roofs, and increasing vegetation. Well-written, thoroughly researched, with a truly global focus, the book offers much for consumers, environmentalists, and policy makers to consider before powering up to cool down." -- Publishers' Weekly Stan Cox is a plant biologist that works at The Kansas Land Institute, Salina, Ks. with Wes Jackson, on perennial seed crops and more.
