Dr. Rupert Read: Governments, corporations will not tackle climate change emergency for us! (E970)
On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Dr. Rupert Read. He discusses Joe Biden’s executive orders on climate change and why far more action needs to be taken, his new book ‘Parents for a Future: How Loving Our Children Can Prevent Climate Collapse’, and why the older generations are obligated to save their children’s futures by combatting climate change. Plus, why Covid-19 has created a debt the older generations must pay back to the younger generation, why he doesn’t expect any agreement reached at COP26 to go far enough, why corporations and governments will not save us from climate change, and much more! Finally, we speak to Oxfam’s Max Lawson, co-author of ‘The Inequality Virus’. He discusses how coronavirus has accelerated skyrocketing wealth inequality around the world, the astronomical wealth billionaires such as Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk have made during the coronavirus pandemic in contrast to hundreds of millions falling into poverty, a stark Covid-19 vaccine inequality between wealthier nations and poorer nations, solutions to alleviate this wealth inequality, and much more!
