Our first guest this week is Ben West, the Tar Sands Campaign Director for ForestEthics Advocacy based in Vancouver. Ben talks to us about pipeline and oil companies from an east coast perspective. His previous experience includes being the Healthy Communities Campaigner focusing on protecting BC and the Salish Seas, as well as zero waste initiatives, sensible transportation and land use planning related to addressing global warming.
You can find out more about Ben and ForestEthics here.
Our feature interview this week is a return to an old friend for an update with Rob Shirkey of Our Horizon. Our Horizon is working to promote the idea of warning labels on gas pumps to help connect at the gas pump, to the long-term consequences such as climate change. Rob joined the program early in the campaign and join us now for an update on his progress and tell the story of the advances that have already been accomplished.
Kevin wraps up the show with some commentary about a recent back and forth between the famous science educator and host of the new Cosmos series, Neil Degrass Tyson and GMO activists about that issue. Despite my being a big fan of Neil, believe it or not we actually think both Neil and many of the protestors have entirely missed the point.
We are now producing high-quality interviews in full HD video as well as memberships that get you exclusive members content each week!
