Capitalism and the Death March of the West (624)

We begin with water shortages and the reopening of apartheid-era tensions in Cape Town, followed by a new lawsuit launched against Ontario’s premier Doug Ford for his cancellation of the cap-and-trade system, and reserve the second two thirds of the show for an in-depth discussion of Nathaniel Rich’s New York Times Magazine reporting on the history of climate change politics, Naomi Klein’s response, and the relationship between capitalism and the environment.

This Week's Music:

Ray Bonneville, “Good Times” & Sue Foley, “Every Road I Take”
