We explore the new “Hothouse Earth” study and its political and social implications. Lauren Latour joins us again to discuss the dismantling of the green energy industry in Ontario. We also consider the strange anti-media tactics of the new provincial government.
The second half of our show is a very special interview with activist Pranom Somwong ("Bee") who works on the ground in Thailand for NGO Protection International. We also talk about Canada's softening of its carbon tax plan in favour of "international competitiveness."
Anger, frustration and strange rhetoric abound as our democracies undermine themselves, wildfires and heatwaves wreck havoc, and rising temperatures help destabilize our mental health.
We begin with worldwide climate problems and feedback loops triggered by pollution, then discuss the neo-colonial nature of global conservation efforts, and end with a conversation about Ireland’s fossil fuel divestment plan and exciting new renewable energy initiatives that harness the tidal power of the moon.
We take a look at Scott Pruitt, Andrew Wheeler and the EPA under Trump. We then discuss California's climate success, Greyhound's abandonment of rural Canada, and the pervading scent of mold blooming in the nostrils of Floridians.
We take a long and winding look at the theoretical and practical compatibility of economic growth and environmental protection. Final section news incl Ford and BC protests.
We look at the aftermath of the Standing Rock protests and the strange edifice of state power. We then discuss offshore drilling woes near Nova Scotia, oceans systems, climate litigation and the carbon dividend.
Fossil fuels are being left behind by changing markets, yet the US and Canada continue to invest heavily in a doomed commodity. We discuss the 'carbon bubble', poor climate change reporting, Ontario's beneficent leader, future floods, and the legacy of James Hansen.
We discuss car culture and traffic deaths in Toronto, followed by a look at waste initiatives at the G7 and an examination of Doug Ford's victory in Ontario. Peggy Sue Smiltnieks joins us to discuss issues in the sustainable fashion industry.
