First half guest Dr. Glen MacPherson has researched and documented a Hum heard by people all over the world. The sound is louder indoors than outdoors, and louder late at night than during the afternoon. In the more serious cases, the Hum can affect quality of life; in a number of documented instances, the torment of the noise has been life-altering. MacPherson shared the latest from his scientific investigation into the phenomenon, which seems to indicate that the culprit may be electromagnetic pollution by Very Low Frequency (VLF) waves. This was followed in the second half by Open Lines.
In a video interview, Dr. Robert Zubrin joins Reason Magazine editor Matt Welch to discuss his new book, "Merchants of Despair," the difference between practical and ideological environmentalism, and how U.S. foreign aid policy encourages population control.
