The second half of Virtual Renderings' fine audio *collage* on our environmental crisis, especially global climate change. Features many perspectives and a wide range of voices--notably (in this installment) Toby Hemenway, Noam Chomsky, and Guy McPherson. Plus a bit of post-apocalyptic science fiction and some relevant music. Introduction by K.D.
The unedited, hour-long *collage* is available for free download from .

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "very noses") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
I have condensed the original version slightly to fit our show's time limitation.

The title song is by David Rovics (begins 24:55).

This installment is available also on The Internet Archive (
