David is a Columbia, Mo. native, son of a college sociology professor, and has lived in K.C. since 1988. He is retired, with a history of a wide variety of jobs, including a career primarily in psychiatric social work. A recognition in the mid-1990’s Kansas City winters were becoming milder led to his dedicated reading on human-induced global warming, and later the Sixth Mass Extinction of Species. These twin-crises pose an existential threat to our Living Earth, offering humanity the opportunity to “grow up”, using our native creativity to move into the Ecological Age. He has a 20-year history of volunteer environmental activism, and has been a humble contributor to Eco-Radio since 2020. He is available for presentations.
I was weaned on the Top 40 of the '60s and came of age in the rock and roll hey day of the '70s. Music was an escape, an education and a driving force in the attitudes and ideals that make up who I am today.

RightsCon, the June 6-10 international online human rights conference is described by lead organizers and presenters. This conference will include over 500 different sessions running in all time zones in multiple languages, including one facilitated in part by Radio Active Magazine regular Spencer Graves. Spencer was invited to propose a workshop for this conference based on a presentation he made last October at WikiConference North America in joint with Luisina Ferrante, Education and Human Rights Manager for Wikimedia Argentina, and Patricia Díaz Rubio, Executive Director of Wikimedia Chile. Patricia said that Wiki Human Rights training in Chile helped people post many images that were used in many Wikipedia articles that broke a conspiracy of silence on abuse of power by Chilean security forces and contributed to the 78 percent approval in a 2020 plebiscite for a process to rewrite the constitution of Chile to replace the one written under the Pinochet dictatorship.Listen
