Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and the Green New Deal

Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and the Green New Deal (podcast ep 56)

Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and the Green New DealWhat do the Green New Deal, Santa Claus and the tooth fairy have in common? Find out as we talk with the founder of The REAL New Green Deal Project. Megan Seibert thinks we’re being sold a fantasy – that we can run our current, materialistic, growth-obsessed economy forever on solar and wind (what she calls “faux renewables”).

“It’s not about what we want…, it’s about what is possible. And what is possible is defined by ecological limits.”

She advises we need to “engineer a planned, intelligent descent.” It may be painful, but you don’t want to miss this conversation.

World Population Day July 11 Webinar : What is a sustainable population? Why, when and what should we do about it? RSVP here

On the GrowthBusters podcast, we come to terms with the limits to growth, explore the joy of sustainable living, and provide a recovery program for our society’s growth addiction (economic/consumption and population). This podcast is part of the GrowthBusters project to raise awareness of overshoot and end our culture’s obsession with, and pursuit of, growth.

Dave Gardner directed the documentary GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth, which Stanford Biologist Paul Ehrlich declared “could be the most important film ever made.”
