Ottawa #ClimateStrike

October 1, 2019 Leave a comment


Huge climate strikes took place across Canada and around the world this past Friday, Sept. 27, with millions taking part including at least 800,000 here in Canada demanding immediate and strong action on the climate crisis, which is getting worse almost by the day. Over 20,000 people walked out of school and work here in Ottawa and I was there to capture some of the sounds from the march. In the face of so much relentless bad news these days, it was truly empowering to see the energy and determination of young people. They simply won’t back down on this one. 

Click the link above to listen to some audio from the Ottawa climate strike including inspiring interviews with two remarkable elementary school climate strikers.

On the show this week, an interview with the journalist and author Tatiana Schlossberg (begins at 27:50).

Tatiana is a journalist and former NY Times Science writer who also happens to be the granddaughter of former US President John F. Kennedy. She’s just written a book called ‘Inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impacts You Don’t Know You Have’.

As students return to school this week and many are buying things to stock up for the new year, Tatiana’s book takes a fascinating and entertaining look at the way climate change and environmental pollution are intimately involved in our everyday life – in everything we use, buy, eat, wear, and how we get around – and have consequences that extend far beyond our lives. Earthgauge spoke with Tatiana about the startling information she uncovered in her book, and how we can reduce the environmental and climate impact of the everyday things we purchase.

Tatiana Schlossberg is a journalist and author. She was a climate reporter for the NY Times and has written for the Atlantic, Bloomberg View and The Record.
