Adam Scott – Climate and Energy Program Manager for Environmental Defense joins me today as co-host for the entire show. From Keystone XL to Line 9 reversal and the fast approaching NEB hearing Adam and I talk strategy, messaging and the politics of effective climate policy. We cover a wide range of topics and ideas but manage to keep pipeline politics as a central focus. I think we really explored some important topics so I hope you enjoy!

This Weeks Music: Brought to you by DJ Amber Waves at Open til’ Midnight:
Another Friday, on the cusp of the Solstice. For those Green Majority listeners who love the Fall, let’s celebrate!
From the ashes, a beautiful Phoenix; it’s how the saying goes. Toronto’s Urvah Khan certainly subscribes to a more musical version of that truth. “SCRAP,” is her reply, when asked her about her sound. “Rock is dead, we built this from the scraps.” Melding her Pakistani heritage with her Canadian upbringing, the resulting music is a whirlwind blend of Western and Eastern sounds, refusing to be defined. Rock, hip hop, rap — all of this and more courses through her first full length release, The Wrath Of Urvah Khan. There’s a sociopolitical edge, akin to M.I.A. and perhaps it’s partially grounded in the life of a journalist’s child. Urvah sees, lives and speaks truth.
