Professor Peter Victor joins the show today as a rare breed, an economist working helping to change the system so environmental costs are worked into the system. The Metcalf Foundation helps to bring us this informative report to supplement the discussion titled Green Economy At Community Scale.
From the U.K., Professor Tim Jackson – author of Prosperity without Growth — economics for a finite planet (Earthscan 2009,) which has now been translated into over fifteen languages, in town to present a new Metcalf Foundation Report ‘GREEN ECONOMY AT COMMUNITY SCALE with York University’s Professor Peter A.

This Weeks Music: Brought to you by DJ Amber Waves at Open til’ Midnight:
Happy Friday, Green Majority!
The weather is crisp, the Mayor’s powers are restrained and the indie bands are pumping out great music, as always!
Arcade Fire needs no introduction at this point; I’m pretty sure the internet answered the question of their identity after their Grammy awards for The Suburbs. Their latest release, Reflektor, is decidedly different. I’m still not certain whether the disco meets ska-folk overtones of the project (coupled with their suggested dress code of formality for their shows) is brilliant or completely up their own posteriors, but I do dig the vibe on “Flashbulb Eyes”. Plus, I figure we’re all a little surrounded by the media flashbulbs of late. Their Toronto show is on sale, by the way.
Feeling a little more like honest indie without pretense? Hamilton’s Illitry delivers a new single, also featuring a bit of a ska undercurrent, in advance of their show on the 24th at Handlebar. “Kingdom Perverted” seems like a great future title for a cheesy Rob Ford TV movie and it’s a sweet track I’m loving. You can have it for a price of your choosing on Bandcamp.
See you next week!
