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.

Dr. Jill Stein

It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to speak with Dr. Jill Stein this morning who was the Green Party candidate for President of the United States in the recently concluded presidential election. Dr. Stein is a mother, physician, longtime teacher of internal medicine, and pioneering environmental-health advocate. She is the co-author of two widely-praised reports,  In Harm’s Way: Toxic Threats to Child Development, published in 2000, and Environmental Threats to Healthy Aging, published in 2009. In 2002 she began her first foray into politics running for Governor of Massachusetts with the Green-Rainbow Party and now with her VP candidate Cheri Honkala, she has run for president. Dr. Stein was born in Chicago and currently lives in Lexington, Illinois.

In our interview, she gives us her assessment of the presidential campaign, explains the Green New Deal, discusses her two arrests while on the hustings and her thoughts on how she sees the next four years unfolding. Click the audio player above or right click here to download the interview.
