Our newest feature for Coast Insiders, The Art Bell Vault, offers an expanding curated collection with two vintage shows added to the mix each Wednesday. This week's offerings explore the threats posed by global warming, beginning with a fascinating edition of the program from 3/6/2004 wherein Jim Motavalli observed that an observable increase in temperature on our planet correlates perfectly with the rise in technology and industry here on Earth. Arguing that global warming is "beyond scientific debate," he cautioned that the very health of our planet is at risk due to the phenomenon.
Next, we journey back to April 14, 2007, for an episode in which Art was joined by climate science researcher Brenda Ekwurzel for an enlightening conversation about how human activity has exacerbated global warming and what we can do to thwart the problem. She pointed to an "unprecedented level of heat-trapping gases" that are being produced by our civilization as a key driver in the rise in planetary temperatures. Ekwurzel posited that preventing the global temperature from increasing just 2 degrees would prevent us from reaching the proverbial tipping point, but cautioned that this would only stop the trend and not reverse it.
These vintage programs have commercials and breaks removed and are presented in multiple-platforms-- available on-demand for Mac, Windows, IOS, Android, and the Coast app. Many of them feature rare "5th" hours of content from back in the 90s when the show had a longer running time. We do include Art's beloved bumper music, which became such an indelible part of his program.
And for the true Art Bell fan, we offer different listening options to fine-tune your experience, such as guest only, and full show streams. Coast Insiders, we're very happy to bring this new offering to you at no additional charge to your subscription! We welcome your feedback.
