Earthgauge Radio November 15, 2012: U.S. Green Party leader Jill Stein and the Ottawa Centre EcoDistrict
On Earthgauge Radio this week, we’re talking about presidential politics and livable cities. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to speak with Dr. Jill Stein this week. She’s the leader of the U.S. Green Party and was their presidential candidate in the recently concluded U.S. election. She joins me for an Earthgauge Radio exclusive interview to discuss how the campaign went, her party’s proposal for a Green New Deal for America, her three (!) arrests while on the campaign trail, her thoughts on the election’s outcome and how she sees the next four years unfolding. Right click here to download my interview with Dr. Stein.
Also on the program today, we hear from James McNeil who leads the Ottawa Green Real Estate Practice group and is the self-described “catalyst” of the Ottawa Centre Eco-District. He tells me all about this exciting, new initiative in Ottawa Centre: how it started, what they hope to achieve and why “eco-districts” seem to be springing up all over North America and beyond.

And given that this past Monday was Remembrance Day, it seems like an appropriate time to remember the environmental devastation that war continues to cause all around the world. We hear a short clip from Friends of the Earth called ‘War and the Environment’. Click here to view the clip directly in YouTube or scroll down to the video player.
