    Last Of Her Kind Review: Captain Planet And The Planeteers - Free Markets Green Earth Vs 007

    In today's episode Ben & I review Last Of Her Kind, episode 7 of season one of Captain Planet & The Planeteers. The episode pits the team against evil poacher Looten Plunder who is killing off elephants in Africa for their Ivory. Ben and I use the episode as a springboard to discuss why poaching is so lucrative and why efforts to solve it generally exacerbate the issue. Dig into yet another piece of this propaganda machine with us.

    The Truth About Ugly Produce - Free Markets Green Earth 062

    The Truth About Ugly Produce - Free Markets Green Earth 062

    In today's episode Nicky P and Ben discuss some old tweets they came across from our long time foil, Dr. Sarah Taber, enlightening people on the truth about ugly produce. If you've been anywhere on the internet the past few years you've undoubtedly been inundated with advertisements for different company's offering to help save the ugly produce from ruin. While we don't always see eye to eye with Taber she's a wealth of knowledge on this topic and actually made us better capitalists going through her explanations.

    GMOs & Organic Agriculture: Another Case Of Superior Technology? - Free Markets Green Earth 061

    GMOs & Organic Agriculture: Another Case Of Superior Technology? - Free Markets Green Earth 061

    In today's episode Ben & I discuss an article he found questioning the ability of “organic farming” to meet the needs of growing global populations. The article seemed like a thinly guised propaganda piece dedicated to GMO apologetics to me, but I’d be remiss in saying there was little value in questioning my own suppositions. The conversation gets a little messy but we make some prescriptions we personally think make more sense than throwing all our chickens into one basket. We need to remember technology isn’t a cure-all but tradition can be misguided as well.

    The Conqueror Review: Captain Planet And The Planeteers: Free Markets Green Earth Vs 006

    The Conqueror Review: Captain Planet And The Planeteers: Free Markets Green Earth Vs 006

    In today's episode Ben & I review The Conqueror, episode six of Captain Planet and the Planeteers. I’m not sure that either of us could really place a message for the episode. The nearest we could come up with was “people suck.” This is a very on brand sentiment for the people who tend to populate the circles actually talking about the environment, but it seems disingenuous to believe that human progress and technology are the worst we have to offer. As per always we treat the show with as much irreverence as a brainwashing tool from your childhood deserves. Enjoy!

    The Free Markets Green Earth Mission: Free Markets Green Earth 060

    This week on Free Markets, Green Earth, Nicky P and The Liberty Hippie have a discussion about the goals of the show. Our main tenet is that free markets, private property and innovation are the best case for protecting the environment. Leaving protection to the government is one one of the worst ways to safeguard mother nature. We also reiterate the need for your help to grow the show. All with the irreverence you've come to expect. Lets teach the world how to really save the earth.

    Deadly Ransom: Captain Planet Review - Free Markets Green Earth Vs 005

    In today's episode Ben & I talk about Deadly Ransom, episode five of Captain Planet and the Planeteers. The episode centers around a plot by villains Duke Nukem & Dr Blight to take Captain Planet hostage in an effort to coerce the Planeteers to bring them nuclear waste. The initial hostage taking goes off without a hitch but the Planeteers ultimately foil the plot. How much of what the show teaches about nuclear energy and waste is nonsense? Tune in and find out.
