On THE COFFEE HOUSE TV this month:

POWERFUL NEW VOICE FOR CHANGE ON CAPITOL HILL
Elected to Congress in 2008, Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) has quickly emerged as a national voice for progressive health care reform and a closer look at our goals and exit strategy in Afghanistan. A member of the Science and Technology Committee, Rep. Edwards discusses the efficacy of carbon sequestration as a solution for climate change. She also explains her "present" vote on a controversial House resolution on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and discusses her efforts to increase compensation for wait staff and improve the health of the Chesapeake Bay. She also comments on the effective Fox campaign of vilification that forced President Obama’s Green Jobs advisor Van Jones to resign. (Host: Mark Cohen)

IS A REVIVED NUCLEAR INDUSTRY THE ANSWER TO GLOBAL WARMING?
Even before Three Mile Island nearly melted down 30 years ago, the US nuclear industry was in a downward spiral, the result of chronic and acute safety issues that prohibitively drove up the costs of regulatory compliance. In recent years, however, the nuclear industry has attempted a comeback as a clean energy source and a solution to climate change. But Public Citizen energy specialist Allison Fisher notes that nuclear power plants are notorious for taking a long time to get on-line, too long to meet the rapidly dawning climate crisis. (Host: Mike Tidwell)

A NEW DOCUMENTARY EXPLORES THE SPREAD OF URBAN GARDENS
Traveling to seven urban gardens throughout Washington, DC, filmmaker Cintia Cabib discovered a vibrant and diverse culture of neighbors who grow their own vegetables and communities. Her film in progress is "Community of Gardeners." (Host: Mark Cohen)

Also this month… poetry by Rei Berroa ("Sensual Harassment") and Brian Gilmore (“the george holliday rodney king video (director's cut)") … and the alt-country sounds of Randy Barrett.
