In the final section the hosts talk about Paris, “Global Terror” and COP21. The moral of the story? If we don’t address climate change, it will only make instability worse, increasing such violence. Says who? How about the pentagon for more than 8 years in a row…

Learn about the connections between Climate Change, COP21 and the “Global War on Terror” with a great article co-written by Naomi Klien “Why a Climate Deal Is the Best Hope for Peace” here.

Now a regular feature, we have an extended show for our podcast listeners. This week Stefan and Daryn talk about Hope, and a revolutionary idea to fix our broken media system.

Want to vote on the poll from the bonus show? You can do that here.

Also! Emmay is away this week, but asked us to let people know about a new COP21 video she’s been working on.

1. WATCH: An Awkward Boys Night… Talking about climate change is not as weird as you might think! Find your voice and tell Prime Minister Trudeau to take a STRONG science-based target to the Paris Climate Talks.

2. SIGN THE PETITION: Scientists have warned us that the window of opportunity to avoid catastrophic climate change is rapidly closing. Canada is going to Paris with one of the weakest targets of the G7 countries but there is still time to act! We are calling on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to replace the weak target proposed by the Harper government and take a more ambitious, science-based target to COP21. The negotiations will only succeed if all countries, including Canada, commit to do their fair share in Paris. Please sign the petition TODAY.
