Ecology & Economics: David Suzuki and Jeff Rubin’s New Lecture Series
Rubin is one of the world's most sought-after voices on the future of oil and energy. A sustainable future, he says, requires institutional change. "Sustainability isn't just an abstract notion," the bestselling author of Why Your World is About To Get a Whole Lot Smaller says. "It is the governing idea behind the kind of economy we need to foster."
Suzuki, the host of CBC's long-running series The Nature of Things, and one of the world’s most recognizable environmentalists, agrees that an economical overhaul has to be made in order to protect natural resources. "The challenge with climate change is not how can we afford to reduce emissions," he argues, "but how can we construct an economy that lives within the confines of nature's boundaries?"
