Disillusioned Conservatives Apply Within (514)

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.

Follows is Rosemary Frei talking about her decision to retire and become a full time activist. Rosemary tells us about her experience walking Gaspe to protest fracking projects in Quebec. We also play a short clip from a previous interview with Toronto MPP Peter Tabuns about the scam that is fracking development in the first place. You can watch the full interview with Peter here.

Rosemary has provided some resources below and you can contact her here if you would like to reach out.

Finally the team discusses some alarming news of Anthrax and secret military bases full of radiation and toxic waste being unearthed by melting permafrost. We finish the show with some discussion of the debacle that is the Rio Olympics.

Bonus Show:

Shaya and Alex join Daryn and Rosemary to discuss the ethics of the idea of ‘sacrifice zones’ and the philosophy of change in the age of climate impacts.

To Hell With Tolerance (513)

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.

After the break, we discuss some good news! A great breakthrough could be on the horizon with the technology to turn waste plastic into diesel fuel. Most people don’t realize that ocean tankers which carry much of our international trade are exempted from most climate regulations and have no fuel efficiency standards. Not only would technology like this clean up a lot of waste plastic, but potentially turn some of the worst possible energy systems on earth (diesel ship engines) to among the cleanest.

Afterwards, we play an inspirational clips from the Revolution Climate rally outside the Democratic National Convention this past week in Philadelphia. Inspiration and exciting we hope you enjoy! We played a short clip from the start but the full video (via The Young Turks) is available below.

Finally, Alex and Daryn follow the optimistic theme and talk about an article about positive traits you should try to live for 2016. While Daryn is not a fan of the flowers language (and you may or may not be either) it’s worth digging through for the actual meat and some good concepts that are worth considering.

Bonus Show!

We welcomed a surprise last min guest to the bonus show, and hopefully we will be seeing her again soon 🙂 Shaya Tajvidi joins Alex and Daryn to talk about car-sharing, solar roads and banning personal transport vehicles to some degree.
