On the February episode of THE COFFEE HOUSE:

THE OBAMA STIMULUS PLAN: WHAT WILL IT ACCOMPLISH?
Everyone agrees that something must be done, but is the stimulus bill that’s emerged from Congress the ticket? Republicans say there’s too much spending and too few tax cuts in the plan. Some Democratic-leaning economists worry that the plan isn’t big enough, given the magnitude of the crisis and its global reach. Dr. Robert Scott, senior international economist at the Economic Policy Institute, observes that the U.S. economy still drives the global system, and that China has also launched a substantial stimulus program of its own. Will these plans succeed? (Host: Mark Cohen)

PRESIDENT OBAMA SIGNS INTO LAW A FAIR PAY BILL
The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act provides women and minorities critical tools to challenge discriminatory pay practices, overturning a Supreme Court opinion limiting pay equity suits. But will it close the wage gap between men and women? We speak with Sharyn Tejani, senior policy counsel at the National Partnership for Women and Families. (Host: Angela J. Davis)

IS "CLEAN COAL" AN OXYMORON OR PART OF THE ENERGY SOLUTION?
The coal industry touts it; so too do coal state politicians. But what is the reality behind the marketing gloss about “clean coal”? Kate Rooth, research coordinator for Greenpeace USA, argues “clean coal” is a myth when it comes to addressing global warming. Rooth explains why her organization is co-sponsoring massive civil disobedience to protest “clean coal”. (Host: Mike Tidwell)

Also this month…The inauguration of President Barack Obama as captured by photographer Sam Kittner… We’ve got poetry by Kwame Alexander. And the percussion based folk-rock sounds of ilyAIMY.
