Bernie Sanders – You Can Save the Planet
01 May, 2023 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The crises facing humankind are, to use a much overused but accurate word – unprecedented. Plutocratic power in the hands of the few is a disaster for democracy and our ecosphere. The ruling class is driven by its voracious lust for domination and money. It’s an old American story. Over a century ago Theodore Roosevelt warned against “a small class...
Mary Wood - Environmental Law & the Defense of Nature
17 Apr, 2023 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

As ecosystems collapse and the climate emergency intensifies, the government often uses its authority to allow the very harm that it is supposed to prevent. Sound crazy? It is. The granting of permits is a battleground where corporations, with their oodles of money to buy influence, have the upper hand over nature. In the face of corporate greed and the...

12 Dec, 2022 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The warnings about the climate emergency are coming in fast and furious yet public awareness and political action remain at a low level. The latest report is from the World Meteorological Organization, a UN agency. Its director said, “The impacts of climate change” are "often felt through water—more intense and frequent droughts, more extreme flooding, more erratic seasonal rainfall and...

EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Our planet and humankind are in danger. The warnings coming from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres could not be more unambiguous. He says we are heading “towards an unlivable world. We are on a fast track to climate disaster. Major cities under water. Unprecedented heatwaves. Terrifying storms. Widespread water shortages. The extinction of a million species of plants and animals. This...
War and the dream of an artificial world
19 Sep, 2022 | 0:28:43 |
EN | Frieda Werden |

In this interview, Professor Claudia von Werlhof states that capitalism is just the latest phase of an age-old patriarchal dream that would replace the dependency on women and nature with an artificial world. This failed fantasy feeds both gnostic religion and the thirst for war. The only solution, she says, is that "Men have to realize that life is here,...

At the Homestead in Flat Rock
21 Jul, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Broad social changes, including enhancements in food production, take root at the individual and household level. That is what matters in the end. Waving banners and marching and chanting slogans and wearing T-shirts and applying bumper stickers is fun and all. Trust me. But to make a social movement “stick,” it has to be something that prompts changes at the...
At the Farmer's Market with Susan Lester
21 Jul, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

For some folks who live in urban regions, the closest they come to a site of food production can be the farmer’s markets that populate the fringes of many cities. There they can see crops in the ground, watch the goats darting around with each other, pick a ripe strawberry, maybe even marvel at a pumpkin being shot out of...

When Waste is Not
18 Jul, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

What is waste? Well, that depends. If you use the word as an adjective or a noun, it may mean a material that is discarded as no longer useful, given the current levels of imagination and technology. However, as a verb, waste can mean “to use or expend carelessly.” As in, “we are wasting 60 percent of a cod fish.”...

EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The corporate takeover of food with its toxic chemical inputs poses serious health and environmental problems. Corporate agriculture, The New York Times states unequivocally "is causing irreparable harm to the planet." It is "ravaging the air, soil and water, destroying wildlife habitats and spurring climate chaos. The system, a vast web of industries and processes that stretches from seed to...
A natural burial is not only cost effective, but it also supports a healthy environment.

EN | rabble podcast network | rabble radio

This week on rabble radio, we dive into the world of natural – or green, as it’s sometimes called – burials. For many of us, talking about death isn’t easy – let alone talking about what happens to your body once you’ve passed away. But what if there was a way to think of your burial as a way to...

Bill McKibben – Workable Solutions to the Climate Crisis
11 Jul, 2022 | 0:57:01 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change uses stark and dire language in its latest report. It says, “The cumulative scientific evidence is unequivocal: Climate change is a threat to human well-being and planetary health. Any further delay in concerted anticipatory global action on adaptation and mitigation will miss a brief and rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a...
Heading to the Big Land to talk Food
04 Jul, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Labrador. The Big Land. The 3rd word in the official title of this province, even though its territory constitutes over 70% of the land mass of said province. The name “Labrador” was bestowed by a Portuguese explorer, João Fernandes Lavrador. Lavrador in Portuguese means “farmer” or “labourer.” So it makes sense that on today’s show, we head to central Labrador,...
