Great Climate Race - Live Epidode 3 - Friday July 14th 2017
This week on our weekly live broadcast we take on a hotly discussed topic. Is having less children the best way to fight climate change? A series of articles (see show notes below for links) were written recently outlining various perspectives.
I was inspired to highlight the issue by a Facebook post from University of BC Prof. Kathryn Harrison. It's worth pointing out that her kids Sophie Harrison and Sam Harrison are both doing a heck of a lot to fight climate change. They were founders of the group Kids for Climate Action and have been actively engaged in campaigns most of their lives. Professor Harison expressed distress at this proposed strategy.
This week was the second installment of our new weekly show on Facebook Live. We broadcast every Friday at 12 noon PST (currently 3pm EST for us here in Toronto). The show will continue every week as we travel across Canada on our road trip and at least up until our next International Virtual Race at the end of October (stay tuned for more details).
Reminder: You can pledge support for us per km as we go for runs and walk in different locations across Canada to raise money for the Tsleil-Waututh Nation Solar Project here:
We will be doing interviews, project profiles and updating you on breaking news in the world of climate solutions as the cross Canada tour continues. Hope you like watching the show as much as we love making it. See below for the complete show notes.
