The Long View Support Team

We are grateful to the support team that makes The Long View radio program happen. The team includes Dan Toomey, Jim Giddings, Crystal Johnson and many others, without whose volunteer help we would not have The Long View to share free information and news over the WUML 91.5 FM airwaves.

If you would like to support the all-volunteer The Long View, please fill in the contact form , "Contact Us' above and describe what you might like to offer; from interviewing to suggesting 20-minute relative audio content.

Also, we need donations (right column) to continue to develop the website here to better serve our listeners, [all volunteer] guests and to enhance social media recognition so that the message of achieving Sustainable Development reaches a yet larger and larger audience worldwide. Thank you.

GlobeScan Alert:

globescan research paid for by BPBP has purchased the services of GlobeScan's "independent opinion research consultancy". If you have relied on GlobeScan's research as an objective voice of sustainability in the past, as I have, I urge you to take another look.

To preserve our planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 392 parts per million to below 350 ppm. But 350 is more than a number—it's a symbol of where we need to head as a planet."
