Click the audio player to hear my interview with Peter G. Brown who is the co-author, with Geoffrey Garver, of the rightrelationshiprecently published book ‘Right Relationship: Building a Whole Earth Economy.’ Peter Brown is a professor in the departments of geography, natural resource sciences and the McGill School of the Environment. He is also the author of ‘The Commonwealth of Life’ and ‘Building the Public Trust’.

In the interview, he discusses why he believes it is wrong human relationships that are at the heart of the problems that modern societies face today. The concept of right relationship is something like sustainability but it goes much deeper and compels us to reconsider the place of humanity in the world.

Click the audio player to hear an interview with Fran Bristow of Alliance Romaine, an organization that is coordinating a 6-week marathon campaign to raise awareness about planned hydroelectric development on the Romaine River in Quebec. She discusses the campaign as well as energy policy in Quebec more generally, and the considerable drawbacks to hydro electric power, which is often touted, incorrectly, as a carbon-free energy solution to climate change.
