We need to watch carefully how environmental rhetoric can turn authoritarian. This week we talk about climate change, eco-fascism, food security, environmental justice, the tar sands, and a whole bunch of energy utility stories.
We talk about government-incited violence, climate, and the plastics industry. In our final segment we speak with Reverend Dr. Cheri DiNovo about mobilizing interfaith communities to combat climate change.
We’ve said it before but it’s still true: we all need to think about how to live differently. This week we talk climate despair, imagination, land rights, coal, renewables, investment, fuel efficiency, coal miners and “green” corporatism.
We begin with the Mauna Kea protests in Hawaii and an oil spill off Newfoundland, then move into a two-segment rebuke of an article from Mark P. Mills arguing that the green energy transition is ‘magical thinking’.
When it comes to climate change, the rich will profit off the very thing they protect themselves from. This week we discuss corporate security, protest surveillance, the Canadian state and climate refugees.
We sit down with climate organizer Amara Possian of Our Time. Our Time is a national campaign led by young people and millennials who are championing a vision for a Green New Deal for Canada — an ambitious plan to tackle climate change and inequality together.
We talk about prison labour and agriculture, and then sit down with Sabrina Bowman, the executive director of GreenPac, a non-profit organization working to elect and support environmental leaders of all major parties running for office. Kimberly D’Oliveira joins us again in the third segment to discuss new developments toward a circular economy.
We talk about the armed militia rallying in support of delinquent Republicans in Oregon, the role of social media in the political divide, schadenfreude, and harnessing the power of coding for social purposes.
Justin Trudeau has approved the Trans Mountain Expansion pipeline a day after declaring a ‘climate emergency’. We look at various perspectives on TMX and the climate crisis and discuss Grassy Narrows, the dangers of environment reporting, and justice in the context of the Green New Deal.
With Trudeau’s Trans Mountain decision looming, we look at Jason Kenney’s petroleum speech and the youth activists who penned letters to the Prime Minister. The Sustainable Economist Tim Nash joins us to discuss recent as well as long-developing trends in sustainable investment.
