Who was the first to discover oil? Was it in Pennsylvania, or West Virginia (museums are built claiming this), or a small well in Caldwell Ohio that is still polluting the ground water? Or should credit be given to the Chinese, or the Native Americans who used oil for medicine and to waterproof their homes and canoes - long before white men set foot on the land. And just how "free" is the "free market" that the fossil fuel industry claims to hold near and dear?

Most people are pretty generous. We like to give our time, money, old clothes, household items away to those who can use and appreciate them. But often we find that the charities we are told to support have agendas we don't agree with, pay their executives huge salaries, and waste much that they receive. So how can we be true to our belief system, be generous, but also be assured that what we give actual goes to those in need?

064 - Early Homes of America (the Pioneers didn’t all live in log cabins) - Dead White Scientists Series
Early settlers of America found the most comfortable homes were often similar to those inhabited by the Native Americans who had survived in this climate for thousands of years. Early residents of Philadelphia built cave homes along the Delaware River - but where forced to abandon them when William Penn decided they were not "British" enough. Homes made of sod, grass, mud, and yes - even log cabins dotted the landscape. So what did the early pioneers build and why? And why did it all change?
