Sorry, no BSR this evening... in related news, we got a Spotify... in unrelated news, "The world is going to end in 12 years"

Bomb Shelter Radio Studio/Transmitter Site, circa 1989(*)

OK, let us get that "end of the world" thing out of the way first. The full quote was:

“Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like, The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?” the freshman congresswoman said. “This is the war—this is our World War II.” -- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quoted at 

I bring it up because there seems to be a kerfluffle about the "12 years" part in the news media (again). Seems to me we shouldn't worry about the world ending on a particular date in 2033, we should be worrying about making sure it doesn't happen at all. FOCUS ON THE BIG PICTURE FOLKS! Meanwhile, even a sea sponge should know that people will take your embellishments, twist them, and throw shade on a legitimate topic, don't you agree AOC?


No BSR tonight, BSR next Thursday. We hope you will join us.

Heidi set up a Spotify playlist for people to enjoy since there is no show tonight, you can find it at

Have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend!


(*) Actually this is a scene from Weird Al's classic film UHF. In real life it was the transmitter for KGTO AM 1050 in Tulsa, OK.

Does this still work?

A quick test of the BSR blog to see if it still functions properly. (Answer: It sort of does, but Blogger gets a bit confused when you are working with multiple GMail accounts... groan) There will be a show tonight at 8PM US/Eastern.

It is 100 seconds to midnight OR Inside the two-minute warning

Be afraid BUT read the article. Be afraid BUT take action. (I know, easier to say than to do) From the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists - Used without permission " Humanity continues to face two simultaneous existential dangers—nuclear war and climate change—that are compounded by a threat multiplier, cyber-enabled information warfare, that undercuts society’s ability to respond. The international security situation is dire, not just because these threats exist, but because world leaders have allowed the international political infrastructure for managing them to erode."
