Methadone For Our Planetary Heroin Addiction

October 29, 2008

Thanks to Tom for posting this great little piece of audio.

Alastair McIntosh is a wonderful writer and thinker. In the brief audio clip from the beloved Today Program he presents the issues surrounding dealing with the economic bubble and climate change. Although I agree that consumerism is definitely not the answer to the climate crisis, I think that massive public investment into renewable energies, a low-carbon extensive public transport system and a big push to weatherise our homes would not only lead the country into a secure climate, but also stimulate the economy.

Alastair also spoke at this year’s Do Lectures, which you can watch here. And finally, a little clip of him explaining the concept of ‘Not In My Term Of Office’, which we should all be very wary of!
