Fake outrage from the US Congress about excessive profits by companies like Mylan (Epipen Manufacturer) and Turing Pharmaceuticals (Martin Shkreli) despite the fact that this is precisely the behaviour our corporate laws are designed to incentivize. We talk about how this relates to #ExxonKnew
Barbora Grochalova who is an Environmental Lawyer in Ontario joins us to talk about the joining of Ontario to the Western Climate Initiative that already includes California and Quebec. This climate credit trading will use a market approach to hopefully limit emissions and work towards climate neutrality.
Daryn and Stefan dig into the ongoing National Energy Board scandals, with completely legitimate mistrust and skepticism about their independence and unbiased perspective on pipeline issues.
Stefan leads us in a game of 'Pope or Marxist.com' with new statements by the Pope on the social ills of greed and the moral obligation to care for the environment. Stefan also provides a brief update on the Dakota Pipeline story and the indigenous people from all over the country coming to join the resistance to the 'Keystone XL 2.0'.
We begin the show with an update on the Nestle water controversy, which could see Ontario sell it's water to the private corp for a pathetic $3.71 per MILLION litres. Daryn hosts a review of the criticism surrounding BC's new 'Carbon Plan'.
Many people would argue that Ms. May has been more than just the leader of the Greens but rather their sole political product since she took over. Despite the undeniably positive effect of her advocacy in parliament, has she become a liability to the Green Party itself?
We start close to home this week with a conversation about energy efficiency standards and the reason we don't have nice things. We then spend a min talking about the pathetic attempts by oil company funded astroturf groups to garner support by trying to sell it with sex to straight males.
We start with a critique of conservative ideology and credibility on the issue of climate change and cap and trade. This starts closer to home in Canada, and then we move into the USA with a conversation about Obama’s final few acts on climate before we wait with baited breath for the results of the rock-and-a-hard-place US elections in November.
The Trudeau government is under fire again this week over the perceived bias of appointing someone with close ties to Kinder Morgan to a board reviewing Kinder Morgan proposals. Our Canadian pipeline coverage continues with another story about whistleblower reports of edited reports by Husky Energy (and likely others) hiding their complacency in protecting the public from spills.
