This week we'll hear a challenging interview with one of the co-founders of Greenpeace International. Michael M'Gonigle has been battling since the late 1960's. He teaches environmental law at the University of Victoria in Canada.
Two hosts from the podcast "The Extra Environmentalist" interview Michael for Radio Ecoshock - about his new strategy which he calls "Exit Environmentalism". Just in case, we'll top that off with a shot at techno-optimism.
But first, I'll talk with chemical engineer and biofuels specialist Robert Napier. We go at the fundamentals of the energy crisis - peak oil, Asian demand, speculation and all that. Napier compares greenhouse gas emissions from Asia to an unstoppable hurricane.
I don't agree with everything all our guests say, but Robert takes me closer to "exit environmentalism" with his clear cold logic about the real world we live in.
